Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Britten wrote his 'Three Suites for Cello' between 1964 and 1971 for his friend, the legendary cellist Mstislav Rostropovich. Like other composers including Hindemith, Bloch, Prokofiev and Shostakovich, Britten took his cue from J.S. Bach, whose six suites for solo cello composed in the 18th century remain the pinnacle of achievement for solo composition for that instrument. "I always like to write music not just for performers, but for people who are close to me spiritually," wrote Britten of these intimate suites inspired by his close friendship with the great Russian cellist.

The Strad
Djokic presents the music with dignity and flair - there is no sense of anything to prove, or of pressing on to the next big moment......Her playing is exquisitely recorded to bring out the freshness and crispness of her sound without losing any clarity through reverberation.
