Notes & Reviews:

Cellist Danjulo Ishizaka, a former BBC Radio3 New Generation Artist, is a star on the rise - in high demand with leading orchestras and conductors worldwide. He made his Vienna Musikverein debut in 2003, his BBC Proms debut in 2006 and has performed at Carnegie Hall in New York. In 2012, Ishizaka was awarded the Hideo Saito Memorial Fund Award, one of Japan's most prestigious music awards. For his Onyx Classics début, Ishizaka is joined by pianist Shai Wosner in a colorful and insightful program of works by Grieg, Janácek and Kodály.

The Strad, October 2014
Danjulo Ishizaka and Shai Wosner are mesmerisingly brilliant in this superbly recorded and imaginatively programmed recital.

Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2014
He maintains a ferociously individual voice...But it is in the Kodaly that Ishizaka seems most at home...this dazzling recital can leave the listener in no doubt of the specialness of Ishizaka's playing.

International Record Review, November 2014
This recital is well worth serious attention ... connoisseurs of fine cello playing should certainly try to hear this disc: Ishizaka is a wonderful musician.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The program concludes with a fine performance of Edvard Grieg's lively and poetic sonata for cello and piano. The enthusiasm of these two players is most satisfying, and the recorded quality contributes to the outstanding effect of this release.
