Notes & Reviews:

Zvezdochka in Orbit was commissioned by cellist Ernst Simon Glaser, and was premiered by him in 2009 with the Norwegian Navy Band conducted by Peter Szilvay. The title refers to the last of the dogs that the Soviet Union sent into orbit, only a few weeks before Gagarin became the first man in space. In the beginning the floating cello voice sounds foreign and lamenting, always in glissando, like the moaning of a little dog out in space. Or perhaps it sounds like a troubled human conscience that feels infinitely small in the universe, struggling to gain more knowledge.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Glaser is a fine player with precise fingers and bow-arm and a feeling for all of the varied styles here. The Navy Band is fine as well, coming to life particularly in the martial sections of the music but with a fine bunch of soloists for the more demanding passages as well. This is a highly unusual program handled with great aplomb by all.
