The superstar cellist once wrote to legendary conductor Leonard Bernstein, asking if he would like to hear him play.

The letter, which is dated December 21st 1965, gives an insight into Yo-Yo Ma’s prodigious youth, training with Professor Leonard Rose and the repertoire he was tackling at the time.

It was tweeted by Broadway polymath Lin-Manuel Miranda, and it’s really, really cute.
