Maya Beiser

Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart.
~ cellist Pablo Casals

For Music Monday, a song by innovative cellist Maya Beiser. Her site says she was "raised on a kibbutz in Israel by her French mother and Argentinean father. [She] is a graduate of Yale University."

Want more info? Ms. Beiser did a TED talk. For something a bit shorter, read or listen to her NPR interview.

Here Ms. Beiser performs Led Zeppelin's Kashmir from her Provenance album:

* Time Loops, her latest album (this takes you to Arkiv Music)
* Albums by Maya Beiser on Amazon

I do love the sound of the cello - - deep and wonderful, it really touches my soul. This was so interesting to read, Tabatha - I love Beiser's adventurousness with her music - she tries it all, doesn't she?! How wonderful!

a favorite kind of sound for me is the cello, Tabatha. It's late afternoon here & your post of musical links is a blessing of relaxation. Thank you!
