TED has been giving a lot of love to cellists lately. (You’ll find no complaints here!) Here, Maya Beiser uses technology, voice, and dramatic physical performance to take the cello into exciting new territory:
The pieces, commissioned for Beiser, are Steve Reich’s “Cello Counterpoint” and David Lang’s “World to Come.” There’s lots more on YouTube; her performance of Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir,” for one. Go explore!
