Notes & Reviews:

Mela Dailey and Scott Kluksdahl explore the sonic world of the human voice coupled with cello, through a wide variety of works that traverse style and genre from the twentieth to the twenty-first century. From Rachmaninoff's beloved Vocalise to premiere recordings of songs by Jake Heggie, to a commissioned new work by rising young composer Robert Honstein, these two performers demonstrate their commitment to bringing the haunting beauty of this combination to the fore. It is appropriate that composers are increasingly choosing the cello - often referred to as the instrument most akin to the human voice - to pair with the sung word. In this debut recording, these two artists make an exciting and compelling case for the future of this genre.
