Since the beginning of lockdown, the RPO’s Co-Principal Cello Jonathan Ayling has been making the most of his unexpected time away from the concert stage and enjoying the extra practice time it has afforded him. He set about learning a piece that he had wanted to learn for years but had never got around to amid his usually busy schedule: Bach’s Cello Suite No.5.

Watch his video diary to see how he has been getting on, learn more about how the Suite is played and to enjoy some exquisite music from this legendary composer.
