Overview

Cellist Zuill Bailey -- whose 2010 recording of J.S. Bach's Suites for Solo Cello went straight to the top of the Billboard classical chart -- focuses on Brahms on his latest Telarc release . It's the first time the cellist has paired on record with pianist and longtime friend Awadagin Pratt. The two have been performing live together since 1998, although they first met over a ping-pong table as students a dozen years before that.

Bailey says, "Of all the records I've made, this is the one I'm most proud of. It was a great experience working in the studio with one of my oldest friends, and I feel like Awadagin and I really caught the comet's tail on this one -- it was intense, that's for sure. We worked incredibly hard, and we recorded about 80 minutes of music, trying to encompass everything Brahms does, from the boldly passionate to the beautifully lyrical." From the Label
