Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Lera Auerbach's 24 Preludes for violoncello and piano (1999) receives its world-premiere recording on Celloquy in a performance by Ani Aznavoorian, an award-winning American cellist of international stature, and Auerbach, a Russian-born virtuoso pianist and one of the most widely-performed composers of the new generation.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
The major part of this program is a 50- minute collection of 24 Preludes for cello and piano. This is a work of great and powerful variety, where many of the preludes connect with the next, culminating in a final one that relates back to the earlier ones. There is also a postlude placed after the sonata that relates back as well. All of this is exciting material with an imaginative approach to tonality, played with intensity. Auerbach is well worth investigating. Aznavoorian makes a fine foil to her pianism and plays her music with involvement.
