Yo-Yo Ma – Edgar Meyer – Chris Thile

May 2 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

“[Yo-Yo Ma] may be the greatest cellist in the world and, some would argue, the greatest cellist ever.” The Washington Post

“[Edgar Meyer is] the most remarkable virtuoso in the relatively unchronicled history of his instrument.” The New Yorker

“Chris Thile [is a] devilishly dexterous and eclectic American mandolin player.” The Guardian (U.K.)

In 2011 these virtuosos and friends made history with The Goat Rodeo Sessions, a recording that blurred the lines of bluegrass, jazz and classical music to the delight of sold-out crowds and critics who gleefully praised the one-of-a-kind collaboration. Together once again, they’ll explore an all-Bach program. Yo-Yo Ma’s rendition of the Bach Cello Suites is regarded as a masterwork. Double bassist Edgar Meyer and mandolinist Chris Thile – masters in their own right, each a MacArthur Fellow – join him in arrangements of The Art of the Fugue, keyboard works including The Well-Tempered Clavier and various trio sonatas.
