Music Week 22/23 – Yo-Yo Ma

Ask anyone who the most famous cellist in the world is, and chances are they’ll say Yo-Yo Ma. This week we are listening to a selection of his recordings from throughout his career ranging from romantic classical pieces to some of the world’s most famous film scores.

His catalogue is vast and diverse and is often featured on recordings alongside other world famous artists. He has contributed to many key cinematic recordings and has recreated some of those himself. Listen out in particular for the Morricone scored theme to ‘Once upon a time in the West’
