Product Description

Amazon.com

Zuill Bailey is an extraordinarily talented up-and-coming young cellist. For this impressive debut recording, he has chosen an adventurous wide-ranging program well designed to display his brilliant virtuosity, his warm, pure, variable tone, his noble expressiveness and his fiery, unbridled temperament. Indeed, it must be his headlong impetuosity that tempts him to tear off all final notes with a violent accent. In the rarely-heard Francoeur Sonata, the slow movements sing in long, sustained phrases; the fast movements, taken at hair-raising speeds, burst with unrestrained exuberance. Splendidly partnered by pianist Simone Dinnerstein, Bailey brings out the grace, humor and delicacy of Beethoven's popular "Variations on a Theme by Mozart," and the romantic ardor and flashes of brilliance of Mendelssohn's "Variations concertantes." Chopin's "Introduction and Polonaise" was originally a bravura piano piece with a back-up cello, but various cellists have made "revisions" annexing the lion's share of the fireworks. The performance seems the last word in all-out reckless virtuosity, but is surpassed by that of Bailey's own transcription of Vieuxtemp's "Souvenir d'Amerique," originally for violin. A set of variations on "Yankee Doodle," it exploits every imaginable, and some unimaginable, technical tricks, tossed off with gleeful abandon; however, the piece ultimately sounds like its own parody. Bach's unaccompanied Suite No. 1 is least successful: over-phrased, broken up by too many accents, ritards and stops; besides, it sounds a bit rough, as if it had been too closely miked, a suspicion confirmed by very audible breathing. --Edith Eisler

Please disregard "A music fan's" review. He clearly does not own this recording, and has some issues with himself. I however DO own this CD. It is a joy to listen to, and I feel it is one of the finest examples of cello playing today. Of all the young cellists out there Zuill Bailey has his own voice. Technically,musically,and personally. His Bach is second to none. Rhythmically it is fantastic. So many interpreters of Bach don't have his rhytmic control. Rhythm is everything in Bach and Bailey shows that. I've never heard the Allegro Vivo in the Francoeur sonata played so crisply and cleanly at this daring tempo. As a violinist I can tell you how difficult Vieuxtemps' "Souvenir d'Amerique" is. It is a piece originally written for violin and many fiddle players don't even dare play it. Bailey is superb in his own transcription and it makes for a terrific ending. A HIGHLY RECOMMENDED DISC !

Just received my copy yesterday from the El Paso pro Musica, Zuill bows well on all tracks, accompanied by Simone Dinnerstein, Piano. The tracks by Francoeur, Bach, Beethoven,Mendelssohn, and Chopin, Vieuxtemps are all excellent. Makes one's mouth water for the next recording by this gifted celloist. Those whose appetites were wet when they saw his appearence on A&E's "Breakfast with the Arts" will be greatly satisfied by this debut recording. Highly recommended!

I've been following Zuill Bailey's career for years and I am so glad he finally released a CD! His live concerts are brilliant, but sadly they come to an end. Now I can listen to him all day long on repeat! Zuill Bailey is such a rare musician. His playing is infused with so much thought and care. It is just beautiful...and when he lets go, look out! His technique is on fire! (the last track will blow your mind) It's hard to believe he's also such a nice guy! (I met him once at a concert) I can't say enough about this wonderful CD, this musician, or this human being. Buy it now!

This is a disc that is sure to delight music lovers and cello fans alike. The debut disc of Mr. Bailey is nothing short of amazing!! His tone is warm, robust, and full of depth. His technique is mind-boggling, to say the least. The Vieuxtemps alone is well worth the cost. The repertoire is quite varied - there is sure to be something for everyone. The pianist is also fantastic. This recording totally blows away any other cello debut disc I've heard, and I have a lot of recordings!! When's his next disc coming out??? Keep 'em coming!!

I was fortunate to hear a performance by Zuill Bailey this past summer with the Chicago Symphony, and was really taken with his his beautiful sound and presence. Not to mention that he is gorgeous! I am happy that this CD has come out for sale. The musical choices are wonderful, and it is one of the few CD's that I can listen to over and over. I look forward to his next recording!

I first saw Zuill Bailey on HBO's Oz and was impressed by his style and overall talent, but this debut really shows his technical prowess. Even though technicality seems his forte, he shows genuine passion in his interpretation of the sometimes-dryly-performed Bach Suites. This is worth owning.

What sets this CD apart from some of Zuill Bailey's other CDs, is the large selection of music that is included by some of the greatest composers for the cello. I rated it five stars, because of both the stlye of music that is included, as well as the quality of the sound and depth of the artist's interpretation of the music being performed. The cello which he performs with, is itself just another reason for you to want to own all of his albums; if however, you want to narrow the choices, then by all means purchase this one.
