Considered by many to be the greatest cellist of the last few decades and one of the most outstanding musicians of all time, Yo-Yo Ma’s multifaceted musical career is proof of the power of culture to generate an atmosphere of trust and sympathy.  Each of his concerts is an example of how the power of music can create moments of shared understanding, as well as being an invitation to engage in a broader conversation about culture, society and the issues that bring us together. For her part, pianist Kathryn Stott, who trained with Nadia Boulanger and Vlado Perlmuter and was a prize winner at the Leeds International Piano Competition in 1978, has been giving concerts with Yo-Yo Ma all over the world since 1985.

On this occasion, they propose an exciting journey through different cultures in a programme where popular roots are the main theme.
