Notes & Reviews:

The Overturefrom 1943 is an excellent reflection of the principles adopted by the composer, realized also in her later pieces: dense and disciplined, based on the classic three-part scheme of Allegro - Andante - Allegro.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
Here now are an ebullient short overture and two cello concertos, the first from 1951 in her earlier, more traditional style, the second from 1963 in her later, more sonoristic manner. The pensive central Andante tranquillo offers a consoling six minutes of gentle reflection, and the outer allegros are lively and idiomatic. Performances and sonics are good. Devotees of Bacewicz (and I am one) will definitely want to hear this music.
