Notes & Reviews:

Stephanie Sant'Ambrogio
Soaring effortlessly high above the clouds. That's the sensation I enjoy when I am in the perfect performance zone. It's a feeling of tremendous freedom and peace. As if I am weightless, I'm soaring on air currents looking passively down on the tumultuous world below as the music flows past my ears. When I decided to record a second CD of solo pieces for violin and viola, Soaring Solo was the title that came 'out of the blue' and drifted into my consciousness. And like Going Solo, I wanted to seed these clouds with some of my favorites from the Baroque period along with a few lesser known, rarely recorded gems and, finally, to include treasures written by living composers. Enjoy your own flight on the wings of these exceptional composers and their inspiring compositions.
