“There is hardly any virtuoso of any instrument who is as complete, profound, passionate and humane a musician as Yo-Yo Ma.” –Boston Globe
Classical music’s most celebrated artist, world-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma, is joined by his collaborator of nearly 30 years, Kathryn Stott, internationally recognized as one of Britain’s most versatile and imaginative pianists, whom the Washington Post heralds as “every bit Ma’s equal, playing...with striking individuality.” Together they perform Stravinsky’s Suite Italienne, plus works by Brahms, Villa-Lobos, Piazzolla, Falla and more in an enchanting program.
Yo-Yo Ma’s accolades and awards, including over 15 Grammy Awards, are virtually endless. Renowned for his consummate musicianship and technical virtuosity, Ma has recorded over 75 albums and remains one of the best-selling recording artists in the field. In this program, Ma takes you through 19th-century Vienna, Paris, Soviet Russia, Argentina, and contemporary Brazil – all with Stott, “an excellent soulmate for Ma.” –The Times
