Yo-Yo Ma's second recording of Bach's Cello Suites, released in 1997, came about after he heard a quote by Albert Schweitzer describing Bach as a pictorial composer. That led Ma to ask six directors and several other artists from different disciplines to collaborate with him on a series of short films - part documentary, part performance - each one based on one of the suites. The resulting mini-series, titled Inspired by Bach, was shown on television in Canada, the . Europe, and at various film festivals

Ma yo-yo the cello suites. Though they were long misunderstood as mere technical hurdles, Bach's six suites for unaccompanied cello are among those rare works of music that offer inexhaustible rewards for performer and listener alike. I like to listen to this album in the morning while planning out my day and going through my bullet journal. The music is soothing and very enjoyable to have playing in the background.

Ma tunes his strings down a half step, giving his cello a warmer, richer tone than his 80s recording (pink cover). All in all, the differences between the two recordings are startling, and it is very interesting to compare the two. I especially like the more dancelike movements (examples: Suite 1 - Courante, Suite 2 - Minuets), and don't believe that anyone else plays them with as much elegance, which I think is the greatest attribute of Yo-Yo Ma's recordings.
Yo-Yo Ma sets out to perform Johann Sebastian Bach’s six suites for solo cello in one sitting, in 36 locations around the world. It is a journey motivated not only by his six-decade relationship with the music, but also by Bach’s ability to speak to our common humanity at a time when our civic conversation is so often focused on division. The project brings the music to iconic locations such as the National Cathedral in Washington, DC; the Nikolaikirche in Leipzig; and Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado
