Widely considered the pre-eminent cellist of
his generation—and one of the world’s most
beloved performers on any instrument—Yo-Yo Ma is renowned for peerless technical
virtuosity suffused with lyricism and purity of
tone. With a repertoire that spans Western
classical music, American roots music, and
the many cultures of his ongoing Silk Road
Project, Ma has won more than 15 Grammy
Awards and has also garnered the Avery Fisher
Prize and the Presidential Medal of Freedom,
among numerous other honors. In his long-awaited
return to Stanford, Ma is joined by
his collaborator of a quarter-century, pianist
Kathryn Stott, who embraces a similarly broad
repertoire, including the complete solo piano
music of Fauré and, with Ma, the tango music
of Astor Piazzolla, as heard on the Grammy-winning
Soul of the Tango.
