Over the course of a decades-long friendship, the internationally renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma and virtuoso pianist Kathryn Stott have developed a kind of secret communication, a wellspring of shared inspiration that creates perfectly attuned, utterly intuitive, and absolutely brilliant performances. It’s easy to get lost in their music, which one critic described as “like champion dancers who anticipate each other’s moves: the slightest bends and turns or dramatic leaps. They listen and respond, shape and give way. Their playing is elegant and from the heart” (The Mercury News). 

The Philadelphia Orchestra does not perform on the Spotlight series.
