Since the review below isn't very helpful with the particulars of this recording, I thought I'd try to be. "Made In America" features cellist Yo-Yo Ma performing the works of four American composers -- Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin, Charles Ives and Leon Kirchner. First on the disc is Bernstein's "Clarinet Sonata," which has been transcribed for piano and cello by Ma. As I was not familiar with Lenny the composer (aside from "West Side Story"), I was delighted to discover this refreshing, rocking and rhythmic recording by Ma and pianist Jeffrey Kahane. Since I love Bernstein's conducting, I will definitely keep an eye out for more CDs featuring his compositions as well. The second piece is Kirchner's "Triptych," a dark, haunting piece performed by only Ma in the first movement, and joined by violinist Lynn Chang for the second and third movements. Next is Gershwin's jazzy "Three Preludes," which was originally transcribed for violin and piano by Jascha Heifitz, and here has been done so for cello and piano by Ma. Ma is again accompanied by Kahane on this piece. Charles Ives' nostalgic "Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano" concludes this recording, with Ma joined by pianist Gilbert Kalish and violinist Roman Lefkowitz. In all, this is another stellar performance by one of today's greatest musicians in any genre.

I think this record is fantastic.

As for the previous poster, I know what you mean. I got this record a couple years ago, listened to it a couple times, liked it ok, but it didn't really hit me. For some reason I picked it up again this week and can't stop listening to it.

The most accessible pieces are the Gershwin preludes, especially the second one, which is one of the real highlights of the album.

The kirchner pieces are amazing, although much less tonal, and maybe a little offputting for people not inclined toward more modern, dissonant music. They are however, well worth spending some time listening to. I especially love the 2nd of the three kirchner compositions presented here.

I think all the musicians do a first rate job, and the quality of the recording is excellent as well.

Yo-Yo Ma does it again with his style and grace! However it's not his best! My favorite remains Classic Yo-Yo. It has tango samplings, Bach cello suite, Gershwins's famous first prelude has a new sound with a swinging cellow and piano accompaniment, and then there is my all time favorite by Alison Kraus singing "Simple Gifts". She has a beautiful voice which has led me to purchase more of her work. Well I have just given you a review for Classic Yo-Yo! This one just was boring to me and I like eclectic, I guess!
