Yo-Yo Ma

<< Back to menu

The cellist Yo-Yo Ma, 1995, with Hauser. “This was taken at a shooting for Reader’s Digest. Yo-Yo Ma was really great. He came in here and got in the corner and said, ‘Marc, what do you want to hear?’ I said, ‘Can you play Jimi Hendrix?’ He said, ‘Sure.’ He went dwang-duwang-wang! I told him that I wanted to take a picture with him, and there was a chair for him to sit on. He said, ‘No, I’ll sit here.’ He felt that we had a lot in common because we both started when we were young. I asked him when he knew he was good, and he said, ‘I think when I was on the cover of Life magazine playing at Carnegie Hall when I was five.’”
