Maya Beiser, World To Come
2004 | Label: eOne Music / Entertainment One Distribution

Cellist Maya Beiser first came to prominence as a member of New York's Bang On A Can All-Stars, and when she struck off on her own, she continued to take an unconventional approach to concerts and records. This collection features four of contemporary music's brightest lights, in works for multiple cellos.

very nice

I own this since a few years now and still listen to it with pleasure. The Golijov is OK. The 4 David Lang pieces are really good--touching, well played, gorgeous. To me, they are why I return to this record. I don't think we needed one more version of Part's Fratres, so I rarely listen to it, and I found the original EMI disk better.

Really beautiful on first listen. Doesn't hold up as well to repeated listenings.

This is wonderfully played, with precision and emotion. It's rather dark and depressing, though, like a voice wailing because there's no hope left. I like it, myself, but I wouldn't listen to it before an important job interview.

I'm a sucker for multitracking but this is gorgeous stuff. Sophisticated and spiritual; Beiser's playing from the very opening is hypnotically beautiful. I expected to listen to World to Come once or twice and pull it from the CD rack every few months or so but it's had some much playing the CD is almost worn out.

A Satisfying Listen

Imagine the Kronos Quartet, all playing cellos, and you will have a pretty good idea of what this sounds like. Just enough edge to keep it interesting, but there is beauty here as well. I find myself coming back to this again and again.

This is really quite beautiful - modern, contemporary sound but tuneful and graceful. A joy to listen to. I recommend it highly if you're looking for something relaxing, thoughtful and substantial.
