Album Description
Cellist Evan Drachman brings together beloved cello works, including a world premiere of
his grandmother Jacqueline Piatigorsky's Prelude for Cello and Piano.
"Drachman's performance brings to mind the way his grandfather played. The resemblance to Piatigorsky has
to do with more than just good taste, eloquent phrasing and a command of bravura. Drachman possesses in
abundance two qualities for which his grandfather was revered:  the ability to make the cello imitate the
human singing voice and, even more important, the ability to tell a story. It's a quality that is all too rarely
found nowadays, and it makes Drachman's disc special."  
The Baltimore Sun (Stephen Wigler)
