With his grand and warm tone and perfor- mances at events as diverse as international remembrance concerts and children’s TV programmes, French-born Chinese American Yo-Yo Ma’s multi-faceted career is testament to his enduring belief in culture’s power to gen- erate trust and understanding. In 1998, Yo-Yo established Silkroad, a collective of artists from around the world who create music that engag- es their many traditions. It has been 13 years since his last appearance in Norway. His discography includes more than 100 albums, including 19 Grammy Award winners, two of which he won with his long-time artistic partner, British pianist Kathryn Stott, a 2017 Festival artist. Artistic Director of the Australian 037 Festival of Chamber Music and present faculty at the Academy of Music in Oslo, Kathryn Stott continues to perform as both soloist and cham- ber musician at festivals all over the globe. She can be found performing to millions at the BBC Proms or to twenty inner city school children just learning to play their scales. Kathryn Stott has built many relationships throughout her career, with music written for her by composer Graham Fitkin, but boasts a 30-year collabo- rative relationship with Yo-Yo that has united these two musical explorers. In Grieghallen the star duo performs works by Stravinsky, Prokofiev and Rachmaninoff.
