Hawkeye | Tulsa, Oklahoma | 11/13/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Yo-Yo Ma is a wonderful cellist. Unfortunately, this DVD does not showcase his talent but is hijacked by self-indulgent "filmmakers" who think we are interested in Mark Morris' artistic angst as he struggles through choreograpic rehearsals complete with four-letter expletives. Yo-Yo is talked-over background music in much "Falling Down Stairs," which reminded me of the bumper sticker: "Humpty Dumpty was pushed." I deposited the DVD in the trash before finishing "Sarabande.""

"Pretentious, self-indulgent, superficial. Ma is a great cellist, but this dvd tries to make him stretch to places he should attempt as a musician, not an actor. Listen to Rostropovich for profundity. This is mere fluff. Some producer really fell down the stairs on this one"

(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a dancer I found this DVD a true inspiration. Yo-Yo Ma's gentle manner and love of the creative soul in all of us is seen through both short movies. Mark morris is exquisite in capturing in movement the core of flowing gentleness and playfulness of Bach as played by Yo-Yo Ma. An awesome experience in sight and sound!"
The best of the bunch

"Falling Down Stairs is my favorite of the series. I love the intimate look at the creative process of the artists and dancers. Truly inventive, intense, and even funny at times. Wonderful. Worth repeated watching."
