"[Review of the CD "New World Cello"]

A journey low cost as a ticket, but full of valuable surprises.
If you like the 'other' music, of course.
Especially the one that the Brazilian World Cup has offered to many ears [so far] unaware.
Actually here's a program well thought out, and better yet paginated, that conquest without unnecessary winks, that is, using the seduction of the original beautiful music simply well aligned.
A program recommended for curious cellists, who surely know the Sonata for solo cello [2003] by Auerbach as a piece of remarkable breath and making.
The rest is a musical journey that touches - as the list of authors explains - the capitals of South America above all. Even Grofè sounds good in this environment.
Ms. Cernitori has taste and brilliance, Ms. Vacatello accompanies wonderfully, fun and interest are guaranteed.
