My Favorite Surprise Today

Posted on 2009.01.20 at 22:09
This moment moved me to tears. It stunned and awed me that we paused in the middle of something as gigantic as a change of government to hear four of the world's greatest musical talents -- five if you count composer John Williams -- making this somber, ethereal, challenging music...

And how lovely was it seeing these four -- especially Yo Yo Ma -- smiling at one another, digging on one another -- jamming, even while holding note-to-note to the composed score of rehearsed music.

Glorious!
