I’m All Ears reviewed

Tiina Kiik, The Whole Note, March 25, 2020: Conductor/cellist/composer Ovidiu Marinescu, violinist Sylvia Ahramjian and pianist Anna Kislitsyna are outstanding gifted musicians who together create a tight, musical, technically virtuosic chamber trio sound. Cellist Marinescu’s amazing almost athletic performance of his own composition Sunt Numai Urechi (I’m All Ears) for solo cello is flawless. An exciting flamenco-guitar-inspired virtuosic work, he almost sounds like two performers as he tackles his fast, circling, chromatic melodies, lyrical sections, high pitches and changing mixed metres.

American Record Guide, April 2020: Cellist Ovidiu Marinescu is the better player and helps make the three works for solo cello more compelling. His own work “I’m All Ears” is the most memorable track, with more energy and feeling than any of the other compositions.
