In this world premiere recording Yo-Yo Ma plays the first ever Cello Concerto by internationally renowned composer and conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen. Yo-Yo Ma performs this stunning concerto alongside the world's most contemporary-minded orchestras: the Los Angeles Philharmonic, under the baton of Esa-Pekka Salonen. The Cello Concerto made its debut in Chicago, where it was performed by Yo-Yo Ma and conducted by Salonen. The concerto was lauded by critics who praised the collaboration.

"It's a large, densely orchestrated work in which he experiments with "cosmic" textures, though it sounds far from experimental in an avant-garde sense. Using material from Knock, Breathe, Shine, Salonen's 2010 solo cello piece, images of clouds and racing comets describe the relationship of the solo part to the orchestra, evolving into a rhapsodic celebration of Ma's formidable sound and technique." - Sunday Times, 31st March 2019
