Yo-Yo Ma with Musicians from
Chicago Symphony Orchestra
A Distant Mirror

One of the most venerated performing artists today, Yo-Yo Ma displays his peerless musicianship in a unique program. A Distant Mirror explores the musical worlds and contemporary resonances of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, including the impact of the period's most celebrated literary figures, Shakespeare and Cervantes. An internationally acclaimed musician and humanitarian, Yo-Yo Ma has been recognized as a Kennedy Center Honoree, appointed a Culture Connect Ambassador by the United States Department of State, and serves as a UN Messenger of Peace. Whether performing new or familiar works from the cello repertoire, coming together with colleagues for chamber music, or exploring cultures and musical forms outside the Western classical tradition, he strives to find connections that stimulate the imagination.
