An incredibly touching version of ‘Over the Rainbow’ by Yo-Yo Ma

‘Over the Rainbow’ by Yo-Yo Ma

Distinguished cellist Yo-Yo Ma and pianist Kathryn Stott perform an incredibly heartwarming and tender rendition of ‘Over the Rainbow.’ Their composition of the famous song is unique and emotional.

Large glass windows show a grey sky that fills the horizon and peaceful waters nearby. The cello and piano seem to sing to each other magnificently. Both musicians are focused and having fun at the same time.

Yo-Yo Ma is a prodigy who has been playing ever since he was four years old. He is so comfortable with the cello, and Kathryn is at home on the piano as well.

They play off each other perfectly and create a song that can soothe anyone’s soul. It is precisely what people expect heaven to sound like.

Every now and then, they look at each other and smile. The experienced musicians allow each other the opportunity to shine. The sound of the cello is incredible.

Yo-Yo Ma’s hands and fingers move with inhuman precision. The sound of the piano is lovely. Kathryn’s touch is light as a feather, and the notes hang weightlessly in the air.

The grey sky is covered with gorgeous pink and orange clouds lit by dusk. They end their performance, and the only thing missing from the background is a bright rainbow.
