Great cello playing
Muzak Man | Denver | 02/13/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These are the very best recordings ever made by Zara Nelsova. This is great cello playing: total control and musicianship. Some of this stuff hasn't been available for 30-40 years, like the Beethoven sonatas, the Dvorak with Krips, the Lalo, and others. It also has some amazing pieces by Bloch, including her best recording of Schelomo, Voice in the Wilderness, and Jewish Life with the composer at the piano. The sound is good, mono, but still high quality. One drawback is that you can often Nelsova's fingers hitting the fingerboard. The intensity and personality really comes through though, and I can't recommend this collection of outstanding cello playing highly enough."
