Yo-Yo Ma

This week we conclude our series of the six Bach Cello Suites as newly recorded by Yo-Yo Ma. We'll have more music by Johann Sebastian Bach, but we'll also hear some works by a couple of his sons -- who, for a time were more highly regarded than their illustrious father as music transitioned from the Baroque to the new Classical styles.

Originally from central Massachusetts, Jay has called the Space Coast home for more than 30 years. He began his association with WFIT in the late '90s as a dumpster diver for office furniture in response to a broadcast plea for a new chair from a frustrated disc jockey. (WFIT has come a long way since.)
