Yo Yo Ma - where to start?

    Having only heard the 'Inspired by Bach' CD plus whatever I've heard on the odd movie soundtrack, I was wondering if anyone can give me any pointers towards other albums to start with? There's obviously the enormous 90 CD box set available but it seems quite a big leap for someone who hasn't heard much, so suggestions for a few would be appreciated.

    TheDecameron Unicorns fart glitter.

    I heard him play the Dvorak with the Boston Symphony - he must have recorded that. Also the Silk Road stuff he's been involved with is lovely.

    i would suggest avoiding his bach. the man has very little sense of the spirit of the works and there are much better performances from others.

    i strongly suspect that if he didn't have such a goofy-cute name we would hardly ever hear of him.
