 Michael Samis awakens The "sleeping beauty" Reine June 30, 2014 By Sylvia S. (Cincinnati, OH) See All My Reviews "The Reinecke Cello Concerto is a magnificent masterpiece that truly earns a place in the standard solo cello repertoire. The soulful and artistic interpretation by Michael Samis, cellist, with Greg Wolynec conducting The Gateway Chamber Orchestra brings this sleeping beauty back to life. The haunting melodies are played with heart rendering emotion, and Michael gracefully masters the many technical demands of the work with elegant charm. His beautiful, luscious tone enriches the colors and mood of the entire CD. This recording needs to be heard!" Report Abuse
