Notes and Editorial Reviews

Venezuelan-American cellist Carmine Miranda is a renowned international soloist and recording artist. He studied first at the Carabobo State Music Conservatory in Venezuela, then at the Latin-American Academy of Violoncell, the Simon Bolivar Conservatory of Music, and the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. For this release, Miranda has chosen cello concerti by Schumann and Dvorak. When Miranda was only twenty two and twenty three years old, he recorded Bach’s Six Cello Suites, as well as Alfredo Piatti’s 12 Caprices for Solo Cello. He was one of the youngest in the world to ever record these works. “It’s natural, then, that Miranda’s performance of the Schumann Cello Concerto sounds like a love letter—attention is paid Read more to moments of delicacy and tenderness.” (Huntley Dent, Fanfare Magazine) Read less

 Enjoyable! July 9, 2016 By B. Dell (Dubois, IN) See All My Reviews "As I was not familiar with the music nor the cellist, I did not rate it 5 stars. I enjoyed both compositions and the cellist does an excellent job...great sound." Report Abuse
