ok i dont know how many in the pit know classical music, but did anyone see the commercials for that movie The Soloist with robert downey jr and jamie foxx? i was wondering if the cello song that was playing was a real song or just one made for the movie because it kinda sounds like a song by yo-yo ma and i really wanna get it.
i have no idea whatsoever. The movies itself looks awesome though
It's Bach Cello Suite No. 1. Quite famous, and Yo-Yo Ma has done at least one recording of it. BUt given how popular it is I'm imagining there are quite a few recordings.
wow thanks i was beginning to think nobody would have a clue haha
Aye, a lot of people recognize it as a Yo-Yo Ma song. Probably because he's the only cellist people know about.
it is the Prelude from Bach's Cello Suite no.1
