Yo Yo Ma again!
These are the beginning lines of an article about my favorite cellist in an online article from Minnesota Public Radio:
If I had to describe cellist Yo-Yo Ma in one word, that word would be "passion." That's why the title of his new release, "Appassionato" is so appropriate. In listening to this musical retrospective of his career, we discover that Yo-Yo Ma's affection isn't just about the music; it's really more about the people making the music. On this new release, he's joined by nine different pianists, several different orchestras, and performers from various countries and musical traditions.

When I first saw YoYo Ma play on public television, passion was the first word that came to me, right after talent. He's an extraordinary musician and human being.
