Editors’ Notes After more than a decade of anticipation, Warner Classics finally released a recording of Osvaldo Golijov’s 2006 celestial masterpiece Azul, his concerto for amplified cello. Soloist Yo-Yo Ma’s impeccable lyricism fits Golijov’s writing like a glove, as soaring lines intersect with popping hyper-accordion melodies and dissonance from the orchestra.
