This selection of piano and cello music includes performances by some of the most illustrious cellists playing today, including Sara Sant’Ambrogio, Wolfram Koessel, Vanessa Freebairn-Smith and Martin Tilman, and it is my honor to have played with them all. For me, the tone of the cello is a constant shelter in my musical life and I hope these pieces may bring you some peace.
This album is dedicated to the memory and legacy of George Floyd and the changes we must endeavor to make in the hope of creating a more just and egalitarian world for us all.
Following the releases of Repose and Wildwood, Sanctuary is the final part of the trilogy to be released during these challenging times.
