From the Ridiculous to the Sublime

Our previous musical interlude featured a positively Pythonic Wizz Jones battling the Newquay Urban District Council, but now for something completely different.

On Sunday the cellists Emma-Jane Murphy and Daniel Yeadon treated us to performances of Bach’s 1st and 5th Suites for Solo Cello, at the Utzon Room of the Sydney Opera House.  I can’t find any on-line Bach performances by either of the two performers, but this rendition of the Prelude to Bach’s Cello Suite No 1 by Yo-Yo Ma (accompanied by Salvador Dali paintings) makes a very acceptable alternative.
