These five works for cello by noted Cuban-American composer Jorge Martín were written between 1997 and 2010 -- most of them having some association with his vocal music. Martín studied at Yale and Columbia University and has received awards and grants from a number of prestigious institutions including the American Academy of Arts and Letters and the Cintas Foundation, among others. Cellist Yehuda Hanani has performed with such orchestras as the Chicago Symphony and Philadelphia Orchestra and is a guest at many international festivals. His pioneering recording of the monumental Alkan Cello Sonata received a Grand Prix du Disque nomination. A soloist, chamber musician, recitalist and teacher, Mr. Hanani also has a weekly broadcast called Classical Music According to Yehuda.

  • "[Jorge Martín] writes in an appealing tonal idiom that is often engrossing and quite original. A serious-minded composer, Mart'n has a penchant for grappling with difficult philosophical concepts and important existential questions... The of uniformly excellent quality. I enjoyed this disc a great deal, and I will be returning to it often."
