Inaugural: “Air and Simple Gifts” by John Williams performed by Yo-Yo Ma

Violinist Itzhak Perlman, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, clarinetist Anthony McGill, pianist Gabriela Montero — offered the premiere of Air and Simple Gifts, composed for the occasion by John Williams (some of you know him better as the composer of the Jurassic Park or Jaws themes). A solid studio recording of the track has yet to be leaked, in the meantime you can listen to this low-fi rip that i scoured the web for. Almost sounds unnaturally flawless, and I know a version had been recorded weeks earlier in preparation… see if you can spot the sync.

if you’re ever heard the Copland, this piece is kinda reminiscent
