Notes and Editorial Reviews

A debut album from cellist Marta Bagratuni challenges the traditional concept of a classical music CD, with an across- borders exploration of the traditional and the groundbreaking. With a track list that offers repertoire spanning 300 years from 18th century Jean Barriere to the music of today, the album presents an eclectic program of works from 13 different countries – adhering to its title. “Pieces of the World” also unveils a new work written for the young cellist by Armenian composer Vache Sharafyan, which features percussion and presents Marta both as a cellist and a soprano, calling upon the performer to sing. Containing no liner notes and a pop-culture cover designed by Zac Brunell “Pieces of the World” is a daring representation Read more of classical music’s new generation of artists. Read less
