Review quote

A great fan of Minsky's previous compositions for cello, I was thrilled to see these 10 new pieces for solo cello. Minsky, who began his career as a rock guitarist before studying cello, has created an exciting style of modern cello playing which has its roots in American rock, pop, jazz, and blues . . . The pieces are well set out on the page with clear and effective bowings and fingering. Generally, these pieces are less difficult than Minsky's previous
compositions and could be played by students from grade 5 through to 8. * Catherine Milligan, Stringendo October 2010 *
