Notes & Reviews:

Cellist David Geringas plays Osvaldas Balakauskas. With pianist Jascha Nemtsov and others. Mr. Balakauskas (b. 1937)is a distinguished contemporary Lithuanian composer. His highly personal music, strongly flavored by jazz, involves use of serial techniques adapted to diatonic structures. Conductor, cellist and fellow Lithuanian David Geringas has introduced many Russian and Lithuanian avant-garde composers to a western audience.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
Here we have music for cello and various accompaniments, from piano in Retrospective II and Dal Vento, with an added percussion in Bop-Art and two violins and viola in Betsafta 2 to an orchestral ensemble in Ludus Modorum. In this last the cellist plays an electronic instrument. The well-known David Geringas is the soloist and dedicatee of this material. He seems to be having a good time. He is a fine player and so is everyone else. This is a fascinating program of little-known music.
