Bach's Suite No. 6 for Solo Cello

Audio will be available later today.

Most cellists don't graduate to playing the solo cello music of Bach until later in a career. Not so with cellist Daniel Mueller-Schott. His debut recording was solo Bach, and that music is also a big part of his concert programs. Before Mueller-Schott plays Schumann and Ravel in concert, we hear him in the Prelude from Bach's Suite No. 6 for Solo Cello.
