Notes & Reviews:

"Ranging in date from 1961's Decalage to the Suite No. 1 in C minor for Solo Violoncello, listeners are treated to a wide swath of Bolcom's music. Cellist Norman Fischer gives an exceptionally strong and well-informed performance across the board. Fischer, who has worked extensively with Bolcom and premiered many of his works, makes the disclaimer to listeners that there are many errors in the published versions of these works and that by working directly with Bolcom the interpretations heard here represent the composer's true intentions. This album is therefore an absolute necessity for anyone who may be interested in performing these works. Apart from these more technical considerations, Fischer's performances are equally insightful musically, capturing the listener's interest with a powerful yet supple tone, sweeping dynamics, and rich character." -All Music Guide
