Yo-Yo Ma – Edgar Meyer – Chris Thile
2016/2017 UCSB Arts & Lectures
Yo-Yo Ma – Edgar Meyer – Chris Thile
In 2011 these virtuosos and friends made history with The Goat Rodeo Sessions, a recording that blurred the lines of bluegrass, jazz and classical music to the delight of sold-out crowds and critics who gleefully praised the one-of-a-kind collaboration. Together once again, they’ll explore an all-Bach program. Yo-Yo Ma’s rendition of the Bach Cello Suites is regarded as a masterwork. Double bassist Edgar Meyer and mandolinist Chris Thile – masters in their own right, each a MacArthur Fellow – join him in arrangements of The Art of the Fugue, keyboard works including The Well-Tempered Clavier and various trio sonatas.

Rodriguez: A Solo Acoustic Evening
Tickets on-sale 1/12 @ 10am

Rodriguez, the legendary singer-songwriter known only by his surname, began performing in clubs around the city of Detroit in the 1960s. He recorded two studio albums, Cold Fact in 1969 and Coming from Reality in 1971. These compositions went unnoticed in the U.S., but reached folk-rock super stardom status in South Africa, where mistaken rumors circulated that he had perished. In the late 1990s, South African fans finally sought him out, leading to the unanticipated renaissance of his music career. Their story is told in the 2012 Oscar award-winning documentary, Searching For Sugar Man which has given Rodríguez a new measure of fame in the U.S. and his music is now reaching audiences worldwide.
