Notes & Reviews:

An important feature of the ensemble Cello Passionato is its regular cooperation with composers. Its close ties with the composer create proximity to the work, inspire the interpretation, and generate the feeling of being able to read between the lines. All the compositions recorded on this CD are a product of this cooperation. The works by Ali-Sade and Gubaidulina are released here as world premiere recordings, whereas the works by Bonato and Kerer were written for the ensemble, premiered and subsequently recorded.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
All of this music is colorfully scored and moving. The group plays with feeling and the recorded sound is full and rich. The music is replete with variety of technique and expression. What more do we want?
