Overview

Offering twelve tracks drawn from Yo-Yo Ma's extensive catalogue of recordings, Sounds of Yo-Yo Ma -- a B&N exclusive -- is an exhilarating overview of the singular cellist's wide-ranging musical interests. Samples of works by Bach, Vivaldi, Shostakovich, and others illustrate Ma's devotion to the core classical repertoire, while music from Ennio Morricone and Tan Dun reveal his enthusiasm for film scores, and examples of the genre-crossing styles of Astor Piazzolla, Mark O'Connor, and Edgar Meyer explore his willingness to branch out in unexpected new directions. Ma is such a multifaceted artist that no single disc could fully sum up his recorded achievements, but Sounds of Yo-Yo Ma is an excellent way to begin.

I love this CD, I feel like I am traveling all over the world when I listen to it. The mixture of songs is great, one minute you're in China, the next in Italy. I highly recommend it.
