Yo-Yo Ma | Kathryn Stott - Songs from the Arc of Life / KDFC: CD of the Week

Bookmark and Share

Cellist Yo-Yo Ma and pianist Kathryn Stott have created a unique classical music experience with their new Sony Classical recording - Songs from the Arc of Life. This all-new recording celebrates thirty years of friendship and collaboration in concerts and recordings for the duo, and the album 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," Yo-Yo 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.  Childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, middle age, old age: what do they sound like?"
