Notes & Reviews:

This recording is about song - a cornucopia of exquisite jewels from a multitude of cultures: Spanish, Italian, German, Brazilian, Cuban, Jewish, Russian, Romanian-Gypsy, and the American heartland. Like the miniaturized trees of bonsai, it is a universe in a nutshell, reduction to the very essentials. Arranged by cellist Yehuda Hanani and guitarist Eliot Fisk, the songs have a sense of adventure and rediscovery that accompanies such work and offer listeners a way to experience this music in new and wonderful ways. Both Hanani and Fisk are internationally known artists, performing worldwide across the globe. This entire recording is suffused with their deep friendship and shared artistic legacy.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
From Bach to Bachianas is the subtitle of this endless collection of transcriptions for cello and guitar. They are imaginatively scored by the players and played in a variety of styles. These two very fine musicians obviously enjoy playing together. The thought of the cello as representing the human voice is brought out beautifully in these arrangements, made with taste and played with love.
