New Release: “TROIKA”

The inventive duo of cellist Matt Haimovitz and pianist Christopher O’Riley is known for their adventurous and wide-ranging recording projects – from Beethoven Sonatas on period instruments to genre-bending arrangements of Radiohead and Arcade Fire. This new 2-CD set “TROIKA” explores music of the Slavic soul. The album is anchored by the cello sonatas of the iconic trio of Russian composers – Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev, and Shostakovich – while also delving into more recently-written, unexpected, and popular works.
