“You know from the start that Beiser, who is amagnicent cellist, is going to ll not just your ears but also take over your senses…this searching, haunting and very, very beautiful work is surprisingly lacking inmelancholy. It is souls journeying, seen neither from the nostalgic past nor unknowable future.” — LosAngeles Times
