Matt Haimovitz's cello's 300th birthday (!) is the occasion for this recording of solo cello pieces, juxtaposing old pieces - Gabrielli's 7 Ricercari pieces, written in 1689 and anticipating if not inspiring Bach's Cello Suites written in 1717-1723 - and new pieces, most of them premiered in this album. Haimovitz's playing is brilliant and inspired, offering fresh interpretations of old pieces. |
