Cellist Yo-Yo Ma and pianist Kathryn Stott create a unique classical music experience with their new Sony Classical recording Songs from the Arc of Life. This all-new recording also celebrates thirty years of friendship and collaboration in concerts and recordings for Ma and Stott. 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. “Childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, middle age, old age: what do they sound like?”
“I love this title,” Stott says, “the ‘Arc of Life’ – because it is one big arc. Once we arrived at the idea, we began to see a beautiful story, a journey through life’s experiences.”
The album is available on iTunes, Amazon (CD), Amazon (mp3), Amazon (Vinyl), Spotify, Google Play. You can learn more about Yo-Yo Ma on his website, or Facebook, @yoyo_ma, or Youtube. You can learn more about Kathryn Stott on her website, or @kathystott.
