AS HEARD AND RECOMMENDED ON ALL THINGS CONSIDERED!!! "This is a fine recital by a pair of artists with lots of talent and a sense of adventure. It stands out from the crowd, and that's no mean accomplishment." CLASSICSTODAY This album contains a unique program chosen around the theme of folklore or in the case of Stravinsky, older existing themes brought into a composer's own style and era. Over 76 minutes of rarely recorded and interesting repertoire on a single disc! Born into a family of musicians in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Denise Djokic has been called the most talented young cellist in the world. Her appearance at the 2002 Grammy Awards confirmed her as a young star in the classical field, and she was recently offered a contract with Sony Classical. She has played with major orchestras and music festivals, and her performances are heard frequently on CBC and NPR programs. With his personal style, incomparable stage presence and refined ear, pianist David Jalbert is one of the most exciting talents of his generation.

"Denise's playing is fantastic, but it still has a little more to be desired. She does play very well and is clear and accurate, but it does sometimes seem like it lacks intensity and sometimes even emotion. However, the folklore theme makes it is a good CD to have in your CD collection."
