Yo-Yo Ma, the LA Phil, and Esa-Pekka Salonen really got it right. After a few late-night drinks Yo-Yo Ma and composer Esa-Pekka Salonen devised a plan that resulted in this delicious Cello Concerto. With inspiration coming from outer space and comets, Esa-Pekka created a galaxy of textures within the brass, strings, and percussion. The piece ends with a stratospheric high B-flat which will take your ears to another time and place. Listen when you want to escape the day, the neighborhood, or the universe.
