The program of Kalin Ivanov and Emily White includes works from different periods and styles - from the pre-classics to contemporary composers: Sonata, Op. 6 by Samuel Barber; Sonata No. 5 in E minor by Antonio Vivaldi; Fantasiestucke, Op. 73 by Robert Schumann; Sonata No. 1 in E minor, Op. 38 by Johannes Brahms.
This is a really great cd. Mr Ivanov shows some excellent phrasing in Brahms and I particularly admire him for the interpretation in Barber. This American's favorite is done really well. Good job !!!

Great recordings, especially the Vivaldi and Brahms, which I am more familiar with. CD I have is wonderful to listen to. I hope there are more to come.
Relaxing and warm to sit by the fire on a snowy day. Also fits a dinner atmosphere with friends and family.
Great, warm sound, excellent performance, and style. I love the choice of works. You are a great cellist.
Excellent performance! Wonderful tone and stile! Your phrase is very touchy...
