Notes & Reviews:

Crossings: New Music for Cello, performed by Kate Dillingham, cellist, and Amir Khosrowpour, pianist, is a collection of contemporary compositions for solo cello and cello and piano. This is a premiere recording for many of the composers and the fourth for Ms. Dillingham. The musical expression varies widely: from driving rhythms to expansive, contemplative phrases; long, lyrical lines to compelling displays of virtuosity; simple musical statements to bow hair-shredding technical challenges. Ms. Dillingham worked directly with many of the composers during the creative process.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
This is a valuable program, particularly for cellists interested in new music to play. Most of these works appear to have been written in this century. As you see, I have reservations about this. The program itself is interesting - and not only to cellists - so I am inclined to recommend it.
