Yo-Yo Ma stays busy through next summer
Published October 7, 2008 By Tjames Madison / LiveDaily Contributor
Cellist Yo-Yo Ma [ tickets ] has looked deep into his crystal ball, setting out a schedule that takes him deep into 2009, including an early look into next summer.
The Chinese-American performer has slotted around 30 dates into his calendar, including major stretches next March, when he performs with the Silk Road Ensemble (part of Ma's non-profit Silk Road Project organization) for a run of shows.
The performer, who is scheduled to play an Oct. 14 (08) concert in New York City, also has a run of international dates lined up over the next several months. Ma's US and Canadian dates are shown below; for dates outside North America, check his official website.
Ma's new recording, the holiday themed "Songs of Joy and Peace," is due in stores Oct. 14 (08). The album boasts a star-studded cast of guest performers, including Diana Krall, James Taylor, Dave Brubeck, Alison Krauss and Chris Botti, among others.
The prolific cellist (Ma has released close to 100 albums since the late '70s) has won multiple Grammy awards, with his trophy in 2004 for Best Classical Crossover Album (for "Obrigado Brazil") being the most recent of his 15 wins.
Isaac Stern Auditorium / Ronald O. Perelman Stage 2,804 Seats The largest hall at Carnegie Hall has been the premier classical music performance space in the United States since its opening in 1891, showcasing the world's greatest soloists, conductors, and ensembles. The hall was dedicated the Isaac Stern Auditorium in 1996, and the stage was dedicated the Ronald O. Perelman Stage in 2006. Throughout its century-plus history, the space has been the forum for important jazz events, historic lectures, noted educational forums, and much more. Designed by architect and cellist William Burnett Tuthill and renovated in 1986, the auditorium's striking curvilinear design allows the stage to become a focal point embraced by five levels of seating, which accommodates up to 2,804. The auditorium's renowned acoustics have made it a favorite of audiences and performers alike. "It has been said that the hall itself is an instrument," said the late Isaac Stern. "It takes what you do and makes it larger than life."
