Notes and Editorial Reviews

Grammy Award winning cellist Sara Sant’Ambrogio has performed all over the world with everyone from Sting to Rudolph Serkin and in every imaginable venue from the Hollywood Bowl to Carnegie Hall. Her passionate playing has thrilled and intrigued audiences from Austin to Amsterdam and from Beijing to Boston in intimate clubs and for audiences as big as 15,000. Sara has had recordings featured on numerous sound tracks, most recently as the opening track for the HBO Film “A Matter of Taste.” Sara’s recording with pianist Robert Koenig, The Chopin Collection, is intensely romantic. Sant’Ambrogio changes the way you think about classical music and performances. She makes Chopin accessible to anyone who has a set of ears and a soul.

 PURE ROMANCE April 16, 2013 By DOMINIQUE H. See All My Reviews "THIS CD IS ONE OF THE MOST ROMANTIC ALBUMS I HAVE HEARD THIS YEAR. SARA SANT'AMBROGIO HAS A DEEP, RICH SOUND WHICH IS INCREDIBLY SEDUCTIVE AND EXPRESSIVE. THE PAIRING OF HER SOULFULNESS AND ROBERT KOENIG'S SENSITIVE AND POWERFUL PARTNERSHIP IS THRILLING! I CAN'T IMAGINE A BETTER PAIRING OF ARTISTS, IT SOUNDS LIKE THEY ARE PLAYING WITH ONE SOUL! SUPER ROMANTIC AND SUPER HOT! THE EDITORIAL NOTES ARE RIGHT-THIS MUSIC MAKES YOU FEEL AS IF YOU ARE FALLING IN LOVE! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS CD FOR ANYONE WHO LOVES ROMANCE! FANTASTIC!" Report Abuse
 Lush, and romantic April 9, 2013 By Gail W. (Saratoga, CA) See All My Reviews "I heard Sara for the first time on the radio and had to buy the CD. I enjoy hearing the lush, deep sounds emanating from her cello as I do the sweet high notes. Her technical skill is impressive as is her ability to elicit an emotional response. I would prefer more accompanying instruments but using only the piano allows Sara to shine." Report Abuse
