Finally, Yo-Yo Ma Shreds. Video and dub tribute to yoyo, itzhak et al. and their powerful performance at the Obama inauguration. John Williams composed an introduction and conclusion and called it "Air and Simple Gifts". The performance was pre-recorded, as we learned a few days after the event. Here is how the live performance might have actually sounded, for all we know... This is a satirical hypothetical document, not an actual record of what happened on inauguration day. Albeit with a nod to StSanders, numerous viewers have also pointed out that the duration of this video (4'33") makes it a sort of John Cage tribute.
