Nice Bach in a Totally Unexpected Place

Scroll over to 10:04 of last night's Colbert Report, and you'll hear a very nice performance of Prelude from the Bach G-major Cello Suite. The cellist isn't named, but I would love to know who she is so that I can tell her how much I liked her playing. Now what was the guy in the hat saying, anyway?

[By the way, we covered some Bach instrumental music in my classes yesterday, and I played my students a recording of the Courante from the Sixth Suite. My secret hope is that someone might have been watching this program with his or her friends, and that person could say "I bet that piece is part of a Bach cello suite."]
