Notes & Reviews:

This disc from cellist Ivan Monighetti and his group Celli Monighetti features new pieces for cello octet by four composers from the former Soviet bloc: Sofia Gubaidulina, originally from the Tatar Republic; Russian Alexander Knaifel; Uzbekistani Dmitri Yanov-Yanovsky; and Franghiz Ali-Zadeh from Azerbaijan. The cello octet Celli Monighetti was founded by the Russian cellist in 2002 from his current and former students at Basle Academy of Music. All the members of Celli Monighetti are prizewinners of international competitions. The group has performed at international festivals such as Schleswig Holstein in Germany, Viva Cello in Switzerland, Madrid Festival in Spain, and the Viana de Castello Destival in Portugal. Collaborating with great living composers such as Gubaidulina, Knaifel, and Yanov-Yanovsky is an essential part of Celli Monighetti's vision, and an endless source of inspiration.
