For me classical music is relaxing company while I work, it just plays nicely in the background. When I put in Corinne's CD, the music came into the centre of the room and demanded my attention. The sounds are sometimes bold, sometimes gentle and always full of emotion. I found myself just sitting on the sofa, eyes closed, taking in the beautiful sound experience. Highly recommended even for non-classical lovers.

Format: Audio CD
As a lover of cello music a friend introduced me to this CD which has had so many repeated plays I have lost count. As a cellist Morris provides the listener with a huge depth of emotion combined with excellent technical skills. She is a player well above the average and hits the spot every time for me. I cannot wait for her to record again. I know cheaper foreign orchestras are used for economic reasons in recording like this, but the Macedonian Radio Symphony Orchestra shines under the baton of Philip Hesketh who produced a committed, disciplined sound and a quite extraordinary partnership with Morris as soloist. There is no second best here. The quality of the recording sound is quite something. It is rich and has huge depth managing to avoid some of the more clinical edges that digital can produce. The sound engineer, Matt Howe has done an amazing job. I know this is a taster CD and not a single concerto, but in many ways it is stronger for this. The pieces are varied in tone and pace and Morris has put together an excellent selection which shows her musical understanding and playing skills. It left me keen to hear more of her Bruch and Tchaikovsky and especially the Faure. This CD is a little gem and something surprisingly special in a sea of endless new releases.

Corinne Morris performs these pieces with great talent and a very appealing emotional intensity. Her passion and dedication to the cello is very evident. The selection of works includes well known and lesser known pieces the performance of which demonstrates her very considerable ability with the instrument. Included is one of her own compositions which is very poignant indeed dealing as it does with loss - an emotion that, according to the CD notes, Ms Morris has experienced in the past. I cannot recommend this CD highly enough.

For cellists listening there are some old favourites on this CD beautifully played and accompanied, but there are a couple of less well know pieces.

Corinne Morris's sound if pure, clear and warm and her playing seems completely effortless (which I am most jealous of!).

My personal favourite pieces on the album are:

Piazzolla's Oblivion which is played freely with lots of personal and characterful embellishment and a luscious, sensual sound.

Bargiel's Adagio - a work I had never heard before (by a composer I had not heard of - turns out his was Clara Schumann's half brother). On the basis of this piece I am definitely going to start look for more of his works. Truly beautiful, haunting and at times drammatic melody.

Corinne Morris's own composition "Un' Ultima Volta" is an elegy on loss, written at a time when she was unable to play the cello. The anguish and sadness flows through a gorgeous melody played with great heart. So glad she is back with her instrument.

I listed three favourites but I like all the works on this disk and highly recommend it as an addition to any CD collection.

Additional comment - the sound quality and engineering are excellent throughout. The balance between cello and orchestra is also very well judged (which isn't always true on more famous cellists recordings!). Just listening to Faures Elegy again - I have heard many recordings of this work and I think the this is the first one where the articulation of the faster passages is so clear that you can hear very note, but without the cello over-dominating the sound. My favourite recording of this work so far.

Beautiful tone, nuance and versatile playing are hallmarks of this eclectic but coherent album 14 May 2014
By Joe Frazier - Published on Amazon.com
Corinne Morris’ music making as a cellist is soulful, nuanced and versatile. Her Macedonian Sessions album is a delightful mix that somehow comes together as cohesive whole. It contains everything from Camille Saint-Saenz to John Williams, Max Bruch to Corinne Morris (yes, she’s a composer as well) and Pyotr Illyich Tchaikovsky to Astor Piazzolla.

She seems bring a quiet determination in her music which may stem from her journey through injury recovery to her music playing – while rich and soulful, it seems have an undercurrent of steel. (To learn more about her story: wp.me/p2XCwQ-G8)
