Synopsis

Product Description
Two powerhouse performers, cellist Matt Haimovitz and pianist Geoffrey Burleson, come together on Odd Couple, released September 16 from Oxingale Records.

Odd Couple Celebrates Elliott Carter s 100th birthday with a new recording of one of his most popular and loved works, the Sonata for Cello and Piano. David Sanford s jazz and funk-inspired 22 Part I takes up where the distinctively American sound of early Carter leaves off, and Samuel Barber s Cello Sonata Op 6 contrasts a European romanticism to Augusta Read Thomas' more modern Cantos for Slava, dedicated to the memory of Mstislav Rostropovich (1927-2007) Thomas s work was commissioned for Haimovitz by ASCAP as part of Haimovitz s 2006 Concert Music Award for outstanding contribution to the performance of American Music.
 

CD Reviews

Delicious tone
Scott Dennis | Long Beach, California | 09/21/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Mr. Haimovitz and Burleson set a deliciously ominous tone with the pieces selected for this Cello/Piano duet. I find this music to be especially inspiring and fresh the way it is presented, especially the new Cantos for Slava a tribute to recently deceased master Mstislav Rostropovich.
