Notes & Reviews:

"The prize here is the Rachmaninov Cello Sonata, a warm hyper-Romantic musical tapestry that gives both the pianist and cellist a major workout. Ma is a superb chamber-music player, as is Ax. Both offer the kind of artistic give-and-take that a great performance of this music requires. This is one of Ma's best chamber-music discs." - Amazon.com
