Notes & Reviews:

"This album of works for cello and piano by Matt Haimovitz and Geoffrey Burleson is clever in every conceivable way. The title itself, 'Odd Couple', plays on the fact that the cello and piano are really a mismatched pair when you think about it, and fits perfectly Haimovitz's long-time mission to popularize classical music... The works on the album cover an impressive array of emotions, styles, and techniques; all of these are handled with exemplary precision, fine-tuned balance, and a symbiotic connection between the two performers that will leave listeners thinking that this is not such an "Odd Couple" after all. Sticklers for absolute adherence to the score will notice that Haimovitz and Burleson sometimes play free-and-easy with printed rhythms, but the musical outcome far outweighs these occasional indiscretions." -All Music Guide
