Press Quotes

٭٭٭٭٭ (BBC Music Magazine)

“…utterly delighted to see that Rohan de Saram, one of the living cellists I most admire… Wow, what a great tribute to Crumb. If you don’t have all three of these works (I didn’t) already, this is an indispensable CD for you.” (Art Music Lounge)

“Rohan de Saram’s cello virtuosity is thrilling, his musicality impeccable… Even people who don’t normally care for Crumb will want to sample it, as it has wonderfully communicative, recently discovered performances from long ago.” (American Record Guide)

“A fascinating window on the music of George Crumb – haunting chamber works, & an important record of Ensemble Dreamtiger’s performances of his work.” (Classical Notes)

“this record, a time-capsule from the 1970s, still speaks to us today” (The Arts Desk)
