Notes & Reviews:

Expedition Audio Recommended
The music is gracefully melodic, colorful, completely tonal, and very pleasant. Changes in sonorities as the cello is partnered with violin, with piano, or with another cello, provide textural variety, ensuring there is no ear-fatigue in this 72 minute program of cello music. ... read more ...

A highly decorated composer in Soviet Russia, Reinhold Glière maintained a low political profile and a conservative but astonishingly inventive melodic style. His interest in national harmonies and folk-music emerges in the Twelve Album Leaves, and his remarkably important contribution to cello repertoire is demonstrated both in his mastery of small forms in the Duets Op. 39, and a unique ability to create orchestral sonorities in the Duets Op. 53, a rare example of an original cycle for the delightful combination of two cellos.

MusicWeb International, April 2013
[GliFre] holds our attention by constantly ringing the changes on style and form so as to ensure that each piece has an individual identity and to differentiate it from its neighbours...Such a recipe might well suggest that, by stressing variety and brevity, these works run the risk of sounding disparate or disjointed but, quite apart from the composer's own skill, the performers' expertise here ensures that that never happens.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
All of these programs are played well, so it is up to you what mood you wish for this music. Reinhold Gliere was one of the last of the Russian romantics. Therefore, he got along better with Stalin and the Soviets than some of his better-known colleagues, at least musically. If you haven't invested in any of these collections before, this one is excellent, also including the early 5-minute Ballade for cello and piano. Enjoy!
