Notes & Reviews:

A breathtaking collection of ancient folk melodies, played on lyrical solo cello with string orchestra. Naive’s astonishing new signing, Sonia Wieder-Atherton, is bound to make a huge impact with this moving repertoire, a striking debut with broad appeal.

”The program works beautifully. The works chosen fit together happily, and Krawczyck’s arrangements surpass expectationsWith that big Yo-Yo Ma retrospective coming out around now, this CD might fall through the cracks. Don’t let it. Cello lovers with a nostalgic streak will love this. I did, anyway!”-Fanfare

bbc.co.uk - Martin Longley
Wieder-Atherton's sonorous tone always lies at the heart, her romantic flourishes taming an imagined gypsy wildness, slowing its expression down to an introverted hover. These songs might not feature any actual vocals, but the cello takes on a suitably singing role throughout.
