Azul, the Spanish word for ‘blue’, is the title of the contemplative cello concerto by Argentinian composer Osvaldo Golijov that forms the centrepiece of this celestially themed album. On this album, Ma teams up with The Knights, the Brooklyn-based group that describes itself as “an orchestral collective, flexible in size and repertory, dedicated to transforming the concert experience.”. Osvaldo Golijovs Azul draws on diverse musical traditions – Western classical, tango, klezmer, gypsy and Middle Eastern. Other compositions are from Karlheinz Stockhausen, Sufjan Stevens and Siamak Aghaei.
