That time Yo-Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman played a Dvorak duet

April 28, 2015

Yo-Yo Ma, the world's most famous cellist, comes to the Newman Center Wednesday for a sold-out Friends of Chamber Music recital.

If you're one of the many Colorado classical fans who didn't snag a ticket, here's a great performance you can watch instead: the cellist dueting with another legendary musician, violinist Itzhak Perlman.

Yo-Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman perform Dvorak's "Humoresque" together.

By the way, there's another Ma event in Denver that hasn't sold out. At 11 a.m. Thursday the cellist gives a master class at Gates Concert Hall at the University of Denver. For $10 you can watch Ma coach a talented group of young cellists.
