Yo-Yo Ma: The Classical Cello Collection 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

This is a fantastic compilation of music, performed by master musicians. I am so glad I found this while browsing my local B&N. Family members play the cello, and one plays the flute, so finding both this Yo-yo Ma box set as well as one by James Gallway made for a fantastic day off from work.
