Concert featuring Kathryn Stott,Piano
“There is hardly any virtuoso of any instrument who is as complete, profound, passionate and humane a musician as Ma.” –The Boston Globe
“Stott, such an excellent soulmate for Ma, tossed the rhythms out of her piano in bold, bright handfuls.” –The Times (London)
With boundless inquisitiveness, energy and panache, superstar cellist and musical nomad Yo-Yo Ma has boldly navigated vast musical territories—from the majestic grace of Bach’s cello suites, to the early Celtic fiddle traditions of Appalachia, to the lusty, soulful strains of the Argentinean tango to the intoxicating intersection of Asian and Middle Eastern cultures along the ancient Silk Road. Now, one of classical music’s most adored artists returns to UCLA Live in a recital with longtime friend and collaborator, renowned British pianist Kathryn Stott, best known for her extraordinary contribution to Ma’s Grammy-winning CD, Soul of the Tango and its successor Obrigado Brazil.
