Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

The Hungarian born cellist Veronika Wilhelm tackles the formidable repertory of solo cello compositions with this release that features Bach's Suite no. 5 in C minor, Ligeti's Sonata for Violincello and Kodály's Sonata op. 8. Cello Con Fuoco (Cello with Fire) is an apt subtitle for this collection as Wilhelm brings a passionate dimension to these well known pieces.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
The Bach suite in C minor is played with the A string tuned down to G as the composer intended. Gyorgy Ligeti (1923-2006) was a student of Zoltan Kodaly, and his two-movement sonata is clearly inspired by the virtuosity and Hungarian style of the latter's amazing work. It is just as well that it is played before. The Kodaly makes not only a fine ending to a program but balances Bach by employing scordatura tuning, the two lower strings tuned down a half-step.
