Audience Reviews for The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble

  • Oct 12, 2016
    It lacks enough music and a clear focus, as it tries to talk about too many things at the same time and only becomes scattered, but at least the musicians' personal stories make it worth it and the movie is always lifted when it focuses on them and their relationship with music.

    An interesting look at an array of performers gathered by Yo Yo Ma in a grand experiment which could easily have gone off the rails but instead turns into something quite delightful.
