Notes and Editorial Reviews

"My gut response shows the high standing Meneses enjoys among classical music-lovers. Though still quite young, he is already considered one of the masters of his instrument, an artist in the class of Rostropovich and Janigro, whose student he was. If he is not as attracted to the limelight as Yo-Yo Ma, his reputation is solid and grows with every passing year. Any new recording of his is eagerly awaited and warmly recommended. Meneses already recorded these suites for Philips (PHCP-1414-5) 11 years ago, but the recording was released solely in Japan. This version was recorded in 2004, and Meneses is at the top of his form. ... Meneses has a beautiful velvet tone, flawless technique, and a musical instinct that never lets him down. His Read more playing is invariably noble, correctly inflected, and fluent. Intonation is superb, and he displays great control of line at all times."
