A CELEBRATION OF CELLOS
CELLO SPICE

This is probably the only CD anywhere totally devoted to original works for three or four cellos, wonderful music which has been shamefully neglected. Cello Spice is a group of Scotland's finest cellists, namely Alison Lawrance, Gillian Copp, John Davidson and Mark Bailey.

"A wonderful disc" - BBC Radio North Network
"If you like cellos, Cello Spice is for you...... Buy it!" - Musical Opinion
"I fell on..(this disc)...with glee...I played A Celebration of cellos over and over and over" - Andre Jute Classical Jukebox
"this simply demands to be heard and enjoyed, in the same deep glow of warm contentment as comes from a glass of Laphroaig taken in a leather chair in front of a roaring log fire on a winter evening… the repertoire has been skilfully chosen to show off the sheer richness of the sound of a cello quartet, and this listener has played the disc again and again with enchantment growing apace on each occasion.   All in all, a most endearing disc".   - Martin Anderson - Fanfare (USA)
