Calm, meditative, and gorgeous, Colla Parte is a solo cello recording from Ernst Reijseger, a musician internationally recognized not only for technique, but for unmatched creativity and improvisatory skills. Warm, intimate sound and an informal atmosphere -- at times you can hear Reijseger humming along, or his fingers squeaking along the strings -- fill this joyful, and at times irreverent delivery of originals and two covers: Abdullah Ibrahim's "Gwidza" and Misha Mengelberg's "La Madre Di Tutte Le Guerre." Filled with beauty, this Winter & Winter release is highly recommended for all fans of string music in general, as well as for Reijseger fans specifically.
