Editorial Reviews

Review

...The best and most wonderful part of all this is that Hartka "gets it" all of it. Yet she manages to do so without ever stealing the glory from the music..indeed the joy of the CD is that, from start to finish, we're hardly aware of a cello and a cellist or a piano and a pianist as such. Rather, we're in direct touch with the soul of the music throughout. - --Joseph Marcello The Greenfield Recorder

"Nana" a spare study in loneliness allows a clear view of Hartka's special gifts: a restrained intensity and a passion for precision that never imposes itself upon he music, or succumbs to the temptation to show off... ...The atmosphere is charged with risk and devil-may-care insouciance, the colors vermilions and blacks... ...all misty cloud covered longing, the deeply ardent English soul singing it's love songs to nature in wraps, under the dignity of great restraint and nobility. Yet, through all of its tender restraint, you want nothing but to weep ...Asturiana is a dark-voiced lament, exquisitely rendered by Hartka... - --Joseph Marcello The Greenfield Recorder

The whole CD is one hour long but longer in after-image in sound and quiet. There's a generosity of spirit in all the performances it invites us in and then sets us free. --Patrice Maynard Renewal Magazine

I just received my CD today and it is absolutely wonderful. I would recommend this to anyone. Every piece has it's own atmosphere which is captured perfectly. The cellist and pianist work together seamlessly. Support new and upcoming artists like Rebecca and purchase her CD today!

I love this CD. The diversity and range of folk inspired music for cello is delightful. These are pieces not often heard, and both the cellist and pianist have presented them beautifully in this debut CD. I love supporting new artists by purchasing their work, and Rebecca Hartka has not disappointed me with her passion and musicality. I will play this again and again.
