Biography
One of the best-known cellists of his generation and of the recording era at large, Yo-Yo Ma is recognized not only for his technical virtuosity but for his engaging interpretative ability. After breaking through with a collection of Bach cello suites in 1983, his ambitions and his appeal stretched far beyond the classical sphere via popular collaborations with such artists as jazz vocalist Bobby McFerrin (1992's Hush) and bluegrass musicians Stuart Duncan and Chris Thile (2011's The Goat Radio Sessions). Within the classical repertoire, his performances have spanned the Baroque era through works of his contemporaries. Ma is also founder of the Silk Road Ensemble, and won his 18th Grammy Award in 2017 for their Sing Me Home, his first in the category of Best World Music Album. ~ Marcy Donelson, Rovi
