Notes & Reviews:
Following two critically acclaimed solo recordings for AVIE, pianist Alexandra Silocea pairs with cellist Laura Buruiana for the Cello Sonatas by Russia's 20th-century compositional giants, Prokofiev and Shostakovich, alongside the much rarer Sonata Movement by compatriot Georges Enescu. Both Russians wrote only one Cello Sonata; Shostakovich when he was on the brink of censorship by the Communist authorities, and Prokofiev when he was in the midst of his.
Alexandra Silocea ... reveals a rather special talent.
New York Times
[Buruiana] is a bona-fide virtuoso, drawing a wealth of color, drama, and flowing line from her instrument.
