Il m'apparait en effet inutile de revenir sur la discographie de Yo Yo Ma bien connue des mélomanes, même s'il est amusant de constater en parcourant le coffret comment un artiste de cet envergure construit son répertoire.
Pour résumer : les premières années les grands concertos, puis les sonates... puis (le répertoire du cello n'étant pas extensible) du cross over !
Les prises de son manquent parfois de netteté, mais qu'importe, vous possédez avec ce coffret quasiment tout ce qu'a enregistré un violoncelliste au talent incontestable.
Revenons sur le contenu: ce coffret (volumineux) est luxueux et très agréable à manipuler.
Mais, un bémol toutefois.
Pourquoi chaque CD est-il inséré dans une basique pochette cartonné (avec une qualité d'impression parfois insatisfaisante) et non dans un mini coffret cartonné avec une tranche mentionnant le contenu afin de pouvoir facilement identifier les oeuvres ?
SONY a réalisé postérieurement de magnifique coffrets de Glenn GOULD plays BACH (42 CD) et Murray PERAHIA (73 CD) avec des étuis CD superbes et aisés à maniupuler (avec une tranche !).
Espérons qu'il en soit de même pour tous leur nouveaux coffrets.
D'ailleurs, Mesdames, Messieurs de SONY, à quand un coffret de l'intégrale Isaac STERN ??
L'integrale est une tuerie et c'est une merveille pour les oreilles et l'ame

I pulled this list off the Internet and hope this helps you.
What are you getting here? This is a relatively gimmick free box set. You get a remastered 90 disc collection of 30 years of recordings from the greatest cellist in my lifetime and therefore this has a very eclectic range of styles. Heavy on the classical recordings, but mixed in are his Brazilian efforts, Jazz and the collaborations with Mark O'Conner and many other amazing artists. But at the center of each disc is the whimsical and wonderful cello played by Yo-Yo Ma.
* 90 CDs - every original album Yo-Yo Ma has recorded to date plus 2 Bonus Discs of unreleased and rare recordings
* Entirely remastered with DSD technology
* 312-page hard-bound book
* Archival photos, essays, full track lists, original liner notes, and more
* Beautifully designed, velvet-lined box
* Numbered limited-edition
The only way to know what number you are getting is to open it up, but each one is individually numbered. The first few hundred included an autographed photo and a thank you letter, but the initial price at release was much more higher. It is nice without the photo and it is all housed in a nice looking box. There are ribbons inside to help keep the place of the disc you are currently listening to.
It sounds fantastic and has so much incredible music that you are getting weeks of listening pleasure most of which holds up on repeated plays. Put your headphones on and enter the world of a Master. He will take you places you haven't heard before...
Just a wonder of exquisite taste and splendor.
The second you look at THE BOX ...YOU KNOW!
The integrity of the essence of each note that is played is so beyond beauty ... it transcends verbiage ... it is his soul lovingly articulating the music ... it is of him and in him.
Have seen him on PBS and with sweat poring from his body is in a world that while truly his, he transmits his created sounds with the eloquence of the great, great humble, abundantly blessed true artist that he is.
This music by its very existence within my home ... will not only be the sounds that my ears are hearing now ... but undoubtably to the end of my earthly years.
We must thank God for the pure beauty of this man and his power to bring life into the world as no one else could even imagine.
Harold Edward Wills
The box measurements are about 29cm wide x 18 cm height.
It is a very strong and beautiful box. It contains 90 cds with a large number in the back of their cases, making very easy to search the cd you are looking for. There is also a index of recordings in hard plastic that facilitates the task of finding a specific cd amongst so many cds.
The set comes with a large book with plenty of photos and liner notes for each cd. It is very informative.
This box is supposed to be a limited edition of 7500 copies but I don't know if this is still true or if Sony released the box again, considering its new low price ( I paid about £ 125 for the box in 2012 and I bought my set from Amazon De. The price on Amazon UK was around £ 200 by that time )
Why the two stars? Because I don't think it is worse to order this set. If you are a fan of Yo-Yo Ma then this box is really excellent. But let me explain why I bought this box set two years ago and now regret having done so:
Cello is one of my favourite instruments, if not my favourite instrument. I'm not an expert or a musician and I started to learn more about classical music just a few years ago when my interest in music narrowed down to almost only classical music .
My thought was that , by getting this box, I would have a very good sample of cello works put together. This is still true but what I found out, in the past two years, that Yo-Yo Ma's playing is not as good to my ears and personal perception as other cello players such as Torleif Thedeen,Pablo Casals, Tortelier and others.
I think that Thedeen's Bach's cello suites are far better than Yo-Yo Ma's, for example.
Two things extraneous to the music itself convinced me even more of my negative opinion about this set:
Photos in the book showing Yo-Yo Ma with different American presidents and Government officials. It is pretty much as if he was some sort of "cello player laureate". It makes me think of Carol Duffy, a mediocre poet who happens to be the poet laureate of the UK. I think that the popular and commercial success of Yo-Yo Ma doesn't make of him the best cello player to listen to. I think that factors outside the quality of his music propelled his career far beyond the career of other cello players. One obvious reason, of course, is that he could take advantage of an era of super information.
I wonder what would be the impact of a box set of Pablo Casals, for example, produced with the same care and quality of this box set. Unfortunately, it will never happen.
And here I come to the second reason why I am more convinced about my negative opinion on this set. I read a review on Amazon US.
It is titled "The Well Rounded Musician" and it says that "The profession of classical musician has evolved/involuted to performing music of mostly dead dudes for audiences that have mostly passed their halfway point many years ago. Whereas late 19th century concert attendees might have heard Brahms play a new piano concerto and conduct a new symphony on a single night, current attendees mostly prefer the same old, same old few pieces, preferably in solidly middle of the road performances." Then the review goes to praise Yo-Yo Ma and how he is not one of those "dead dudes".
Reviews like that tell me that Yo-Yo Ma appeals to a numbed public who is eager for the new just for the sake of the new, no matter its quality. His success might me a typical product of mass communication, mass culture.
I listened to the Brendels performance of Beethoven sonatas for cello and piano and then listened to Yo-Yo Ma's performance. I liked the Brendels performance much better. Today I know what most musicians and experts always knew: It is normally much better to go for individual cds with the best performances than a big box like this one with performances of only one cello player, one who doesn't sound as good as other cello players who, despite their better musical skills, are not as fashionable and hype as Yo-Yo Ma.
Other thing that makes me wonder about the quality of Yo Yo Ma performances is his eclectic approach to music. Many people praise his diversity of recordings as a good thing but I think classical music is already difficult enough and if I see a performer who goes beyond classical music and records jazz, tango, japanese music and more I can't help but think that he just can't be as good as someone who plays only classical music, or only jazz. It is just a matter of basic common sense.
Classical music requires a considerable amount of practice and, although there is certainly room for a jack of all trades such as Yo Yo Ma, it is unreasonable that his cello playing will be as good as the playing of some legendary cello players, those "dead dudes".
My suggestion is: Get a few cds from other cello players, "old dudes" now dead and also from newer ones still alive such as Torleif Thedeen. Compare them with cds from Yo-YoMa and see what you think. Don't just jump to the conclusion that this is the best set to buy simply because Yo-Yo Ma plays for American Presidents.
If I could I would sell my box . But with this new low price I just can't sell this box because it's too big and too heavy. I would end up paying more for the shipping than the price I could get from the set now. So I am writing this review thinking about customers who are starting their classical music collection.
My suggestion is: Get a few cds from other cello players, "old dudes" now dead and also from newer ones still alive such as Torleif Thedeen. Compare them with cds from Yo-YoMa and see what you think. Don't just jump to the conclusion that this is the best set to buy simply because Yo-Yo Ma plays for American Presidents or because he has a project for children. He certainly managed to be always on the right side, in terms of influence, and was happy to play with the likes of the powerful Condoleeza Rice, who played an important role in the invasion of Iraq and the subsequent disasters caused by it.
The officialdom that surrounds Yo Yo Ma bothers me because it creates a "monopoly of sound" and is also very hypocritical. He is involved in a project about music for children and at the same time plays with someone like Ms. Rice.
It is not that he isn't a very good cello player. It would be stupid to deny that. But there are better players, dead and alive, and most people don't have the budget or the time to listen to all good performers so a selection must be made and Yo Yo Ma is certainly out of my personal selection.
Try individual cds from other cello players and also small sets such as the Great EMI recordings of Paul Tortelier . You will not get the quantity or luxurious presentation that you get with this set but you will get more musical quality. Small is still beautiful.
PS. I wrote this review on 30 december 2014. The date shows january 2013 because I wrote a previous review about this set on that date. It was a five stars review but I changed my mind. There are better cello players than Yo Yo Ma out there but none of them, dead or alive, ever had the powerful and hyped up marketing that Yo Yo Ma benefits from. It is a situation similar to Perahia's one. Horowitz, a better pianist, never had and never will have a box set with the fantastic presentation that Perahia's box set has. Sony invests hard in musicians such as Yo Yo Ma and Perahia. It is not very different from the well known practice, in the past at least, of djs making an average song popular by playing it again and again.
This review is, obviously, the expression of a personal point of view but it seems to me that many people, especially musicians, don't buy the hype about Yo Yo Ma. One example is this very set. Its original price was $789 in 2009. Sony released only 7500 copies. The price fell down about four times. If Yo Yo Ma was a messenger from God on Earth, as some of the hype about him would make one believe, then it is surprising that the set has not sold out...It is costing only £107 on Amazon UK, much less than any of the three big Karajan's sets, for example. But Amazon's reviews are driven by cheerleading and many people who don't like Yo Yo Ma would not bother to write a review simply because they didn't care to buy the set or they don't want the hassle and bullying that is inflicted by internet hoodlums and cheerleaders on one or two stars reviews about popular products.
