PBS film of Yo Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble at Tanglewood
Article by Dave Conlin Read.
The June 24, 2012 concert by Yo Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble in Ozawa Hall at Tanglewood was great fun, as we reported at the time. We haven’t seen the DVD from the show, but the film that premiered MAy 9 on PBS is a wonderful souvenir of the event. Whereas the concert was over two hours long, the 60 minute TV version, which included perhaps 15 minutes of non-performance material, fully conveyed how brilliant and exciting this ensemble is. Here’s hoping it makes it onto heavy rotation on PBS!
