Customer Reviews


I read a review about Suite I Prelude that stated, "the lonely cello is still a neglected instrument"...However I believe that with the compositions Ian has chosen to share, perfectly showcase the warmth that resides within the brailed strings of the cello and have provided the consumer with a wonderful and warm sound. The lonely cello will no longer be neglected...and these pieces will captivate the listeners ear! Choosing Bach,Cassado, and Levinson were wise choices because they maintain a well established popular knowledge with fabulous explorations of arppegiated chords around the tonic notes, giving the audience a definitive insight into the mastery of the three greats...not to mention the master that is Ian Maksin. The sound is clean and perfectly pure, not to raspy not to static-y not to echo-y...a sound quality that is outstandingly good, leaving the listener free to be caught up in the emotional, joyful music. Ian plays as if there is a story behind it...a deep mystery with an expressive journey. The tone and tempo feel absolutely right, it is light and flowing with energy and drive. I especially liked the balance between masculinity and femininity...starting with the Prelude that is sweet and dreamy the last movement is deeper and strong...creating a perfect balance that will appeal to the masses!

"Solo Flight" Soars!

A wonderful selection of classic and newer suites, this album draws you in from the first track and holds you captive throughout. Ian Maksin is a virtuoso in every sense of the word. His playing is seamless, powerful and passionate. The sound quality is outstanding and as close to a live performance as you could imagine. This album will appeal to both new and seasoned listeners. Close your eyes, breathe in, and soar with Ian Maksin on his "Solo Flight."

Cello Power!

This was one of the best classical CD purchases I've made this year. As an amateur cellist, I can truly appreciate the artistry and complexity of Ian's music. I have several other recordings of the Bach cello suites, and Ian's rendition of the first two suites is wonderful! The sound quality is perfect (it sounds like you're in the same room listening to him play, which I've had the pleasure of actually doing!). "Prayer" and the Cassado suite for solo cello are welcome additions to the CD (and your ears!). Highly recommended!

Solo Flight, Ian Maksin
