A pity only the first two movements of her Cello Concerto can be found on YouTube :( The String Paths album isn't on Spotify either. Anyway, I'm about to listen to the first two movements now!

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts, Kyle. :)

The slow movement is indeed incredibly beautiful. Music like that is the reason I play the cello :) I wasn't as struck by the first movement (which had partly to do with the performance on YouTube), but the ending is wonderfully deep and resonant.

+1 although, unfortunately, I don't play the cello.  :-\

Great to hear. The Longing movement is one of the best pieces of music I’ve heard in a long time.

Two piano pieces from Tabakova are featured in Andrew Matthews-Owen's new album.
Halo, a three movement work, and Nocturne are the pieces.
