Yo-Yo Ma on What Happens Between the Notes

Jul 8, 2018

In this episode of On Being, host Krista Tippett interviews cellist Yo-Yo Ma about his work decoding musical creations across time and space.

"In his art, Yo-Yo Ma resists fixed boundaries, and would like to rename classical music just 'music' — born in improvisation, and traversing territory as vast and fluid as the world we inhabit. In this generous and intimate conversation, he shares his philosophy of curiosity about life, and of performance as hospitality."

Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble will be in residence and performing at the Chautauqua Institution the first full week of August.
