A superb recording of music for cello by American composers.

The repertoire alone - featuring the first commercial recording of the Piston Variations and the elegant Evett Concerto - is enticing enough. But there's much more. Luis Leguia, the veteran cellist of the Boston Symphony (since 1963) is also an inventor and here he performs on his unique Luis & Clark Carbon Fiber Cello, an instrument that has received exceptional praise from critics and musicians.

Review:
"...exceptionally rewarding...The music is inviting and melifluous in an identifiably 'American' way..." (American Record Guide)
