There's one point where Perlman and Yo Yo Ma smile at each other just as the Simple Gifts hymn begins to edge in. I think they enjoyed that piece.

1. That was a great moment

their whole performance, that is. I was hoping it would show up on YouTube.

2. I thought it was beautiful, especially the opening with just the violin and cello.
Starts off somber, then goes into the lighter melody (which I knew as "Lord of the Dance" as a kid).

3. I knew it as Lord of the Dance too. Wiki explains it's a Shaker Hymn though
so it was fun to learn more about it.
