    Technical competency-wise, I believe there's many other cellists who could play just as well as Yo Yo Ma...

    But showmanship, charisma, music-making, spread of knowledge of the instrument, experimentation and passion-wise, Yo Yo Ma has really accomplished something that not many musicians in the world has... Everytime I see him play or perform, I can see his complete immersion into his passion, his joy and that has a rub-off effect to his audience... That's a gift that he possess...
