Format: Audio CD
Tadeas Salva was a contemporary Slovakian composer, and the cello was his primary instrument of choice. However, in his "Concerto for Cello and Chamber Orchestra" it is clear that percussive elements and unorthodox rhythmic patterns were central to the textural patterns that he wanted to create. This is not warm sweeping cello music - far from it. And it doesn't have the multi-themed feel of Bartok, but it is interesting in a percussive sort of way.

Next comes "Three Arias for Cello and Piano (Nos. 1, 2, and 3)". Each makes use of atonic counterpoint, and while musically interesting, they are not quite so pleasing to the ear. These are the kind of pieces that you might find sandwiched in a Chamber Music Concert between two bread-and-butter works. They deserve to be heard, but are certainly not going to draw concertgoers in and of themselves.

Following these is a "Little Suite for Cello and Piano", which presents some rather pleasant material played by the two instruments, each accompanying the other in a lovely back-and-forth motion as if two old friends found a few minutes to catch up with each other. Afterward, "Slovak Concerto Grosso No. 3 for Violin, Cello, and Organ" is a Concerto Grosso in more traditional style featuring what appears to be folk-song based and quite pleasant. These two pieces are easily my favorites on the disc.

Finally is a series of eight preludes for two cellos. Both Mr. Prochac and Mr. Slavik show themselves to be fine cello players in these atypical, more contemporary feeling short pieces,

Overall this music is played well, and the musicians do a fine job with the material. But for me, it was the more traditional sounding pieces that I enjoyed the most. Those that enjoy the more contemporary works will likely find something of value here in the pieces that were not quite my cup of tea.
