Movie Details

Few contemporary classical musicians have enjoyed the sort of crossover appeal courted by master cellist Yo-Yo Ma. A 15-time Grammy winner and the recipient of innumerable other honors, Ma was a musical prodigy who began training at 5 years old and steadily touring with orchestras at age 20. His recording career has spanned dozens of albums, and he is a constant presence on musically-themed television programs. In this documentary profile, scholar Dr. Howard Gardner sits down for a candid and revealing discussion with Ma that explores how the great man cerebrally processes music and the world around him. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
