Cello music with a Scandanavian twist
Zoe Knighton has released the latest in her series of cello discs. She is joined by acclaimed pianist Ian Munro for this latest disc, venturing into the wonderful sound worlds of Grieg, Pärt and Sibelius.
Zoe Knighton and Ian Munro have had a long association together as chamber musicians and here celebrate by collaborating on a unique combination of beautiful northern European melodies.
Using the the magnificently romantic Grieg sonata as their centrepiece, this CD presents a diverse program from the haunting beauty of Väsk's "Gramata Cellam" to the grand beauty of Grieg.
Described as musicians of 'color and flair' (Munro) with a 'thrilling tenor sound" (Knighton), this is a CD not to be missed.
