The family moved to New York where he studied at the Julliard School and at later at Harvard University, where he also received an honorary doctorate. Gave his first public concert at the age of five. Played at Carnegie Hall at the age of nine. Has recorded over 45 albums.

He currently plays a Montanan cello from Venice made in 1733 and a Davidoff Stradivarius made in 1712 ； both over 200 years old. Yo-Yo Ma has recorded albums with many other musicians.
