Customer Reviews

Not an SACD as describedThis is a regular CD. Seller does not understand the difference between a regular CD and an SACD.1Let Yo-Yo Set Your Mind At EaseBoy, if you ever feel like you need to just unwind, just totally relax.....put on this CD. Not only do you hear wonderful music, with tasteful presentations on the cello, piano, guitar, violin and - yes - shakuhachi (a bamboo flute), but you'll feel all is well with you and the world.Really, it's almost like magic. This is a great collection of some of Yo-Yo Ma's best work between 1978 and 2006 with an addition of some previously-unreleased material.Even for those people who usually don't listen to "classical music," this is really pleasing stuff that will cure whatever blues are ailing you at the moment.5Not greatBoring compilation. Still it's Yo-Yo, so I can't dog it in a review. Not a disc I will play again and again. Really boring.4Not an SACD as advertised. Poor packaging.This is NOT an SACD as advertised. No SACD mark on case and not recognized as SACD in compatible player. Excellent performances of previously released material. Case cracked in shipment1A few excellent tracks!I am not connnoisseur of classical music, and bought this cd only because I like violin and cello music, and wanted to experience Yo-Yo Ma. My reaction is therefore more related to my liking for or indifference to certain pieces, than to Yo-Yo Ma's artistry, which I do not criticize. All of the tracks were enjoyable, but the two that I play over and over again are Saint-Saen's The Swan, and Morricone's The Mission: Gabriel's Oboe. These are both sensitively and beautifully performed. And hearing the latter has just motivated me to buy the soundtrack of the Mission!4Great item.CD in great shape, plays well. All the notes were included. Only 4 stars because the case is trashed. Kind if annoying when you can't keep the cd in the case. But as I said it sys well4There Aren't Enough Stars...Of the thousands of albums/cds I have purchased in my lifetime -- were I to have to pick only one to keep -- this would be it.The mark of the collection is an exquisite sensibility and technical excellence. In several of the pieces, you can feel as if your soul, rather than musical instruments, is being played -- but nothing mundane, boring, sophomoric, sentimental, or trite. The choice of material is intelligent and intuitive -- the taste of a great musician. The culmination piece by Ennio Morricone could arguably be considered the most beautiful 2 plus minutes of recorded music. It is nothing short of a cry to heaven.Five stars -- hardly enough -- there aren't enough stars for me to rate this.5Deep, Serious and diverseYo Yo Ma is simply fantastic, and has arrived as such a height of recognition that any production he is invovled in will be top of the line, as this is.This is a darker collection than I expected. And like a serious, reserved friend, it can take a little longer to appreciate than the bubbly outgoing ones. I now find I like it very much, but it is serious "conversation."There is great variety here as well, and I gave it to a friend's teenager who is considering whether she wants to learn the cello. Her response was much the same as mine. Initially not so sure, but over time, has really come to like it, too. This collection has great depth.5So satisfyingI am a Yo Yo Ma fan it's true. But this CD is so satifying in so many ways. His phrasing is so touching. I feel he was born with the cello in his hands. I try to buy the music I understand. Sometimes like his Baroque CD is beyond me since I really have no music training, but as I keep playing it I come to understand and then appreciate it. I love all his CD's but this one I have to say is one of my favorites even tho' some of the music is on other CD's.5Soulful & Wide -- Best Yo-Yo MA CD if you only buy OneIf you are new to Yo-Yo Ma's music, I think this CD is the best "Best-Of" collection. I think it surpasses Silk Road Journeys (Beyond the Horizon & When Strangers Meet), New Impossibilities, and the Essential Yo-Yo Ma. I recommend all these other CDs as they are also beautiful, but if you can buy only one, I think Appassionato is it. The pieces are all lyrical and not excessively percussive, and fully exhibit Ma's classical-genre breaking style. It is a good balance between traditional classical pieces (although, Ma adds his own magic and makes his cello believe it is a violin, piano, oboe, or a brass instrument), and non-classical Asian/Turkish pieces. These other pieces use ancient instruments in heavily modified ways to sound good to our contemporary ears yet still retain their original haunting melodies. The Yanzi (Swallow Song) is an extended instrumental (better) version of a vocal piece from Beyond the Horizon. This has a highly unusual sound, very soulful. I kind of go crazy over this piece.I rediscovered Yo-Yo Ma after about 25 years. I used to listen to him when he was a new rising star (from his teenage to early 20's). I recently saw him at the Kennedy Center and realized how his music has matured. A true master. I felt chills and had tears in my eyes. Every bowing and musical phrasing perfectly executed during a live performance (not a recording where you can go over anything less than perfect). There is a line in Ursula Le Guin's novel where an alien comes across an exceptionally beautiful ice-scape in the middle of a grueling journey on foot to save his people. He says, I am glad to have lived to experience this. Yo-Yo Ma was like that.5
