'... much here to praise ...'

Russian Music for Cello and Piano - Wendy Warner and Irina Nuzova. © 2010 Cedille Records

Here's a welcome sixty-nine minutes of absorbing music with one of the finest American (Chicago) cellists now before the public in partnership with a Russian (Moscow) pianist of similar artistry.

Additionally we hear an enterprising, all Russian cello and piano recital with five composers and no Tchaikovsky or Shostakovitch. Well done Cedille, Wendy Warner and Irina Nuzova.

It's four years since Warner and Nuzova committed to their chamber duo partnership...
