The 40-year friendship between two musical titans, John Williams & Yo-Yo Ma, reaches a new peak with 'A Gathering of Friends.' The incredible warmth & brilliance of composer/conductor John Williams is felt throughout this album of both his concert music (a newly revised 'Cello Concerto') and his legendary film music, including a powerful new arrangement of the 'Theme' from 'Schindler's List,' brought to life by Yo-Yo Ma and the world-renowned New York Philharmonic.

REVIEW:

It’s a treat to hear Ma lend his still-flawless technique to this selection. His light and transparent tone floats serenely above the Concerto’s dense harmonic landscape, and the arrangements of film themes are captivating, too.
