Yo-Yo Ma

Weekend of March 29, 2008

Yo-yo ma and lang lang

O.K., we don't have them playing together. But cellist Yo-Yo Ma will talk about developing his own style before he plays the Dvorak concerto with Hans Graf and the Houston Symphony. And pianist Lang Lang joins Fred Child in the studio for some conversation and a Chinese folk tune.
