Yo-Yo Ma tells Bloomberg about the first song he learned to play

Bookmark and Share

Yo-Yo Ma's multi-faceted career is testament to his continual search for new ways to communicate with audiences, and to his personal desire for artistic growth and renewal. Whether performing new or familiar works from the cello repertoire, coming together with colleagues for chamber music or exploring cultures and musical forms outside the Western classical tradition, Mr. Ma strives to find connections that stimulate the imagination.

CBS/Sony Classical has been accompanying superstar the cellist for decades on his journey through the unsurpassed works written for his instrument by Johann Sebastian Bach. The label has recently released some of the important landmarks from that journey, called Yo-Yo Ma Plays Bach.

Ma tells financier and philanthropist David Rubenstein about the first song he learned to play and shows a few tricks of his trade on Bloomberg's - The David Rubenstein Show: Peer-to-Peer Conversations. LISTEN & WATCH
