I am very curious, which violinist would you compare Yo-Yo Ma to (Heifetz, Perlman, etc.?) based on his technique, musicality, etc.?
And just a general question on the cello, how does one travel on air with it? I've been thinking lately that people with intense touring/concertizing schedules like Yo-Yo Ma wouldn't be very happy when his x million dollars Stradivirius is in the cargo, somehow I have a feeling sticking ten fragile stickes on the case won't be enough. Does he buy a seat for his cello? And what about people who play the double bass?
