In a new video, cellist Maya Beiser plays with time and memory, turning back the clock to when she first heard J.S. Bach's music on a scratchy old LP. It remains, she says, a timeless lodestar for her art.
Music takes my mind and body into a calm, receptive state for meditation, or for just relaxing. I close my eyes, breathe in the sound and let it fill my body. The day's stresses melt away, my mind clears, and I feel at peace.
