Siblin pursues the mysteries that continue to haunt this music more than 250 years after its composer's death: Why did Bach compose the suites for the cello, then considered a lowly instrument? What happened to the original manuscript?
Pablo Casals found the Bach suites as a young cellist and brought the deeply moving music to the world. Few works can be so closely attached to a musician besides the composer.
