EDITORS’ NOTES

After more than a decade of anticipation, Warner Classics finally released a recording of Osvaldo Golijov’s 2006 celestial masterpiece Azul, his concerto for amplified cello. Soloist Yo-Yo Ma’s impeccable lyricism fits Golijov’s writing like a glove, as soaring lines intersect with popping hyper-accordion melodies and dissonance from the orchestra.

This album is a knock-out

This is one spectacular collection of amazing music. If you are new to Golijov, this is not a bad place to start; if you are familiar with his music, you will be thrilled at this piece. Yo Yo Ma is utterly amazing. The Knights are simply dazzling. The multiple works on this album really hang together well. Do not miss this collection.
