John Williams & Yo-Yo Ma: Gathering of Friends

John Williams & Yo-Yo Ma: Gathering of Friends
Title: Gathering of Friends
Label: Masterworks
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

2022 release. 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 and 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. Another highlight from the John Williams film music catalog is Yo-Yo Ma's performance of "With Malice Toward None," an inviting and uplifting melody from the movie "Lincoln," inspired by Abraham Lincoln's second inaugural address. Other featured artists and friends include the virtuoso Spanish guitarist Pablo Sáinz Villegas on a delicate cello/guitar arrangement of "A Prayer for Peace" from the movie "Munich," and Boston Symphony Orchestra harpist Jessica Zhou on "Highwood's Ghost."
