The music requires the cellist to cover the instrument’s entire range from the highest delicate tones to the strongest bass notes, and Handy has no trouble filling the bill. Natalie Clein plays it on a 2010 Hyperion disc, but I don’t think her virtuosity is quite up to the level of Handy’s.
Maria Nockin, Fanfare (37:3, Jan/Feb 2014)
The Handys are very well-matched tonally … Their interplay is unselfish, each receding into the background when the other has the melodic interest … The recording is highly successful, achieving a vivid sound picture without any feeling of artificiality.
Guy Aron, MusicWeb International (November 2011)
