Yo-Yo Mas multi-faceted career is testament to his continual search for new ways to communicate with audiences, and to his personal desire for artistic growth and renewal. Whether performing new or familiar works from the cello repertoire, coming together with colleagues for chamber music or exploring cultures and musical forms outside the Western classical tradition, Mr. Ma strives to find connections that stimulate the imagination.
The world renowned award-winning cellist performs music from Ennio Morricone scores including The Mission starring Robert DeNiro and Jeremy Irons, Lady Caliph (La califfa), 1974's Moses, 1982's Marco Polo, as well as selections from films by Giuseppe Tornatore, Sergio Leone, and Brian DePalma.
Mr. Ma has received numerous awards, including the Avery Fisher Prize (1978), the Glenn Gould Prize (1999), the National Medal of the Arts (2001), the Dan David Prize (2006), the Sonning Prize (2006), the World Economic Forums Crystal Award (2008), and the Presidential Medal of Freedom (2010).
