During his outstanding career, the cellist Yo-Yo Ma has worked exclusively with the Sony Classical label. He’s released more than 75 albums with them. Many of them have been Grammy Award winners and he remains one of the bestselling recording artists in all classical music.
Yo-Yo Ma’s latest release is a collection of some of his most popular recordings, brought together in one set for the first time. It includes well-loved favourites for the cello, including the concertos by Elgar, Haydn, Schumann, Shostakovich and Dvorak among many other greats.
Five CDs, great value, and the perfect introduction to the cello and one of its modern masters.
