‘Yo-Yo Ma Plays the Music of John Williams’ is a 2002 album of John Williams compositions performed by Yo-Yo Ma and the Recording Arts Orchestra of Los Angeles. The album celebrates its 15th anniversary (in 2017) and is since that year finally available on vinyl for the first time. A 4 page booklet with an extensive story written by John Williams is included. The composer John Williams is best known for his popular, emotionally charged scores to Star Wars, ET, and many other blockbuster movies, to ride to the rescue with a new ‘Cello Concerto’, an intense, expressive, and rhythmically vital offering tailor-made for Yo-Yo Ma's dexterous touch.
