Notes & Reviews:

These five works for cello by noted Cuban-American composer Jorge Martín were written between 1997 and 2010 - most of them having some association with his vocal music. Martín studied at Yale and Columbia University and has received awards and grants from a number of prestigious institutions including the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the Cintas Foundation, among others. Cellist Yehuda Hanani has performed with such orchestras as the Chicago Symphony and Philadelphia Orchestra and is a guest at many international festivals. His pioneering recording of the monumental Alkan Cello Sonata received a Grand Prix du Disque nomination. A soloist, chamber musician, recitalist and teacher, Mr. Hanani also has a weekly broadcast called Classical Music According to Yehuda.

"The quality of the performances fully matches that of the music. Yehuda Hanani, a champion of Martín and, I suspect, the catalyst behind this recording, plays with heart, mind and a big, romantic tone that is suited to this music. Hanani is joined in the sonata, nocturne, and variations by the outstanding Walter Ponce, who plays with intelligence and passion. In Ropa Vieja, Hanani is joined by accordionist William Schimmel and percussionist Arti Dixson, who deliver sensitive and idiomatic performances. The recording was made at the American Academy of Arts and Letters and is of uniformly excellent quality. I enjoyed this disc a great deal, and I will be returning to it often." -Fanfare
