The 40-year friendship between two musical titans, John Williams and Yo-Yo Ma, reaches a new peak with A Gathering of Friends. The album is comprised of two acclaimed concert works the composer wrote for the cellist (Cello Concerto and Highwood’s Ghost), plus selections from his scores for Schindler’s List, Lincoln, and Munich. Featuring Williams himself conducting the New York Philharmonic, A Gathering of Friends also includes special appearances by guitarist Pablo Sáinz-Villegas and harpist Jessica Zhou.
