Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Yo-Yo Ma has a great advantage in (like Rostropovich) having the Berlin Philharmonic to accompany him in the Dvorak Cello Concerto, and Maazel provides a spectacular opening tutti. He is then willing to match his accompaniment to the refined, dedicated approach of his soloist. Ma often plays with great delicacy, especially in his elegiac slow movement, But the Berlin Philharmonic players can match his gentle line, and although some might prefer a more robust reading, Maazel ensures that there is no lack of contrasting excitement in the outer movements." -- Ivan March, Gramophone [2/2000] "Yo-Yo Ma has a great advantage in (like Rostropovich) having the Berlin Philharmonic to accompany him in the Dvorak Cello Concerto, and Maazel provides a spectacular opening tutti.

 lovely music March 4, 2014 By Sally C. (denver, CO) See All My Reviews "So here you have Dvorak's most famous cello concerto and Yo Yo Ma playing. What more could you ask for? My only small complaint is the quality of sound does reflect that this was recorded awhile back." Report Abuse
