Four minutes of bliss

Cello virtuoso Yo-Yo Ma's collaborations with artists from other disciplines are legion. Filmmaker Spike Jonze caught this fluid and poetic interlude featuring Ma and street dancer Lil Buck, set to Saint-SaĆ«ns' “The Swan.” (The music starts about 40 seconds in.)

 Daedalus currently has bargains on Ma playing everything from baroque to Appalachian to film music—and of course the cello suites of Bach, cornerstone of the cello repertoire.
