Reknowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma will be celebrating his 60th birthday this Fall, and as part of the celebration, he, along with pianist Kathryn Stott, will release a new album, Songs From the Arc of Life, on September 18. The record also celebrates 30 years of friendship and collaboration in concerts and recordings for Ma and Stott, and includes pieces they have frequently performed but never recorded, as well as a handful of discoveries.

"I like to think of Songs from the Arc of Life as an invitation to our audience to remember and imagine what the soundtracks of their lives might be," Ma says. "Kathy and I have talked for years about recording an album of music we absolutely love, pieces that express the context of a life, of our lives." 

Yahoo Music is excited to premiere the video for "The Swan," by Camille Saint-Saëns. WATCH THE VIDEO
