"'Over the last sixty years,' I began, 'I’ve used words, millions of words, in books, articles, lectures, and countless conversations. But some things cannot be expressed in words alone. Words cannot express my thanks to all of you for coming tonight. Words cannot express my love for Shira, who has stood by me—and put up with me and my music—for all these years. Neither can words express what a blessing my children are. The mere thought of them fills me with joy, amazement, and pride. As my beloved cello teacher Mr. J used to say, "When words leave off, music begins." So tonight I want to express myself in music.'"

"As I pulled the bow across the strings, I could feel the 'soul' of the cello emerge and connect with my soul."
