Notes & Reviews:

Swiss-born Taiwanese cellist Wen-Sinn Yang is one of Europe's great virtuosos, dispatching the most daunting works with fearless ease. A devotee of contemporary music, he has given premieres by such eminent composers as Pierre Boulez, Henri Dutilleux, Kevin Volans, and Lorin Maazel. An active recording artist with over 20 releases to his credit, on this new Avie disc Wen-Sinn claims the spotlight exclusively. Featuring solo repertoire that straddles the 19th and 20th centuries, all performed with awesome virtuosity, the result is a generously-filled album that is a must for all cellists and a thrilling ride for any music lover.
