Newest Silver Duo CD Earns Rave Review

The newest CD of chamber music by UMaine artists Noreen Silver, cello, and Phillip Silver, piano, performing with violinist Solomia Soroka, was reviewed on MusicWeb International. It features the works of little-known Jewish composer Bernhard Sekles who was directing the Hoch Conservatory in Frankfurt until the Nazi regime came to power. Reviewer Steve Arloff notes that Sekles wrote a small number of compositions, including the two sonatas on the disc that demonstrate the composer was “clearly a master of the genre.” Arloff calls the CD a “discovery,” both for the obscure Sekles works and the “flawless” performance by the Silvers and Soroka.
