Biography & Memoir • 1.5 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2021

Classical musician and cultural icon Yo-Yo Ma treats listeners to a unique and exquisite aural gem, seamlessly blending self-discovery and musical storytelling. In his innovative take on a memoir, Ma recounts various details of his life while inviting listeners to ponder humanity and hope with a beginner’s mind. His soft-spoken voice exudes a sense of calm and meditative introspection. In the minimal dialogue between the beautiful musical selections, which showcase his stunning mastery of the cello, Ma expertly segues into his view of the context or message of each musical piece in a succinct yet deep manner. This enables listeners to more deeply feel the emotion in the music while reflecting on Ma’s insights. This audiobook provides soothing inspiration that can be enjoyed again and again. V.T.M.
