Yo-yo is a megastar in classical music. If there was any doubt he was a great musician it was settled this weekend when we saw him in concert. The Silk Road Project is brilliant. The idea is to bring together some of the finest musicians from different cultures along the silk road (and throw in Yo-Yo Ma) and have them play together. New instruments and new sounds. Three cheers for a great performance.
But more than the sound, my take-away message was a reconfirmation that people should do what they like to do and good things will happen. Well, if you work hard and all the rest too.
And everyone should know I have an automatic crush on cello players. Yo-yo obviously really enjoys what he does, his ego didn't dominate a performance, and his smile and rumpled appearance is very cute.
