“Emanuel Ax, the great concert pianist, recalls the nervousness when his ensemble, which included cellist Yo-Yo Ma , proposed a new variation on an old piece to their partner, the esteemed violinist Isaac Stern.” Since Stern was 20 years older than they, and had probably played the composition hundreds of times before, they thought he would resist the change.
