A memoir by cellist Yo-Yo Ma but short and sweet. And generously interspersed with his wonderful playing. Beginner’s Mind is a concise and quick listen about his background and life experiences along with inspiring philosophies of life. Read by the artist himself and very enjoyable.
I have been a fan of Yo-Yo Ma for many years and so was interested to learn more about him. I could have listened to his stories for much longer. Especially with his exquisite playing included. But I was not disappointed. Even if you are not a musician I think you will find Ma’s story entertaining, enlightening, and enjoyable. His journey of self-discovery and the evolution of his life and career are likely to resonate on some level with all. From child prodigy to a human being pursuing a meaningful purpose. Yo-Yo Ma’s insight and music delight.
