YoYo Ma is no doubt a great musician but this collection was kind of lifeless. Almost all the pieces were very sedate, I wanted him to open up once in a while and really play with gusto, but it never happened. Maybe I'll like it better in the future.
The ratings on this 2 CD set are inflated. The first CD is enjoyable, but no more than an assembly of tracks from other Yo-Yo Ma albums. The second disc is uninteresting. I think there are much more enjoyable Yo-Yo Ma albums to invest in than this one.
