Iris Azquinezer’s cello playing touches the listener far away from any show or external effetc. She approaches the famous Bach Suites for solo cello with great sensitivity and inner astonishment.
An excellent instrumental technique along with a high level of musical education, truly serve the music here as a language of the soul. The warm sound of her cello goes directly under the skin.
Iris Azquinezer´s pieces, partly with underlying sounds of nature, are really suitable interludes to the Bach Suites.
Her compositions are magic glimpses of personal emotions, states and images which are expressed through the language of cello playing, similar as in her Bach interpretations.
