It turns out that the preformance of Cellist Yo-Yo Ma, violinist Itzhak Perlman, pianist Gabriella Montero and clarinetist Anthony McGill was a taped performance. Due to the cold weather they decided that it would be impossible to keep their instruments in tune and so they performed to a recording they had made earlier. I know that I was thinking at the time that surely they wouldn't bring their best - and priceless instruments - to an outdoor gig like this one. So I can't really blame them. The full story can bee seen by checking out the blue clicky.

Fair enough, I suppose - but I note that Pete Seeger and Bruce Springsteen didn't need to do that for This Land...

So that's how they REALLY sounded.
Too Funny! I laughed all the way through!
