Lou Bourgeois is 94 today. We had a wonderful conversation yesterday about books and music. He told us about reading Eric Siblin’s The Cello Suites, an account of Pablo Casals’ rediscovery of Bach’s resonantly profound masterpiece. For your birthday, Lou, here is Yo-Yo Ma performing Suite No. 1 in G major (BWV 1007).
Encore: Mstislav Rostropovich performs the Prelude from Suite No. 1 in G major (BWV 1007). It was filmed at the Basilique Sainte Madeleine, Vézelay, Yonne, France in 1991.
