  1. Of the great cello performances of this two minute Bach cello solo prelude , which of these two performances I love do you rate as “the best” ?

    1. Rostropovich plays the Prelude from Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1 (2 minutes)

    2.Yo-Yo Ma plays the same piece:

    (stop after the first of Yo-yo Ma’s)

    Hard for me to choose , I love Rostropovich’s attack at the beginning but give it to Yo-yo Ma for the last thirty seconds of unbelievable polyphony.
