Yo-Yo Ma

Kathryn Stott

At the age of five, she made friends with the upright piano in their living room. That was the beginning of her musical journey, one which continues as you read this. It would appear that her initial progress was rapid and, by the age of eight, she found herself at a boarding school for young musicians, the Yehudi Menuhin School. It is now clear to her that during her studies there she was heavily influenced by two occasional visitors to the school — Nadia Boulanger and Vlado Perlmuter. From them, her great passion for French music was ignited and Fauré in particular has remained the musical love of her life.
