Notes and Editorial Reviews

Though his recordings are relatively few (especially for a major label artist), Mischa Maisky is recognized as one of the most distinguished and celebrated cellists of our time. This recital of arrangements of familiar as well as undeservedly unfamiliar classical tunes amply demonstrates why. His tone is impeccable, technique flawless, and most important he leaves the listener feeling as if they're hearing the piece in a wholly fresh new way. Joined by his long time accompanist Pavel Gililov, this is a recording all cello enthusiasts are sure to enjoy.
