Reykjavík-born cellist Sæunn Thorsteinsdóttir presents four works by her Icelandic compatriots, three of them written specially for her and the fourth an older work with which she feels a special identification. “This project,” she writes, “is a compilation of pieces by composers that not only share my mother-tongue and culture, in language and music, but also bring their unique perspective and expression” to their compositions. “Each piece,” she notes, “is its own sonic setting; they are all intimate monologues, getting up close and personal with the textures, resonance, and overtones of the cello.”
