Notes & Reviews:

Marina Hoover's career includes chamber music and solo performances worldwide. She was founding cellist of the St. Lawrence String Quartet, which won both the Banff International String Quartet competition and the Young Concert Artists Auditions in 1992.

"This program gives us two of the romantic era's most lyrical cello sonatas. Hoover has a lyric gift that makes her interpretation very effective. She sings her way through this material in a way that brings out the poetry in both works. The Liszt piece serves to emphasize the dark side of the period. Altogether, this is a fine interpretation. I only wish that the players had trusted their imaginations to allow them to observe the repeat in the first movement of the Chopin. I'm sure they would have found something new to say the second time through. But that's the only negative point." - American Record Guide
