EUGENE FRIESEN/SOLO CELLO
in

SOUL OF THE CELLO

PRESS

Berklee Today feature

Propelling "Soul of the Cello" are narratives escorting the listener through Friesen's blend of familiar and adventurous music. Like a master chef, Eugene offers an exotic and varied musical menu - invention, virtuosity, insight, lyricism - served with tangible love, humor and warmth.

"Friesen shows the kind of playing that makes him such a solid soloist. His tone is rich and his melodic phrasing is well formed. His presentation of a musical thought is never overstated, but it is never lacking, either."
- The Pittsburgh Press

"Friesen is a cellist of perfection, a player with technique in abundance who keeps it in check. Playing with delicacy, intimacy and depth, he's got chops, but places the music first."
- Option Music Alternative

"The concert was stunning, you are so spiritually close to the cello, so that the "soul of the cello" is certainly the right title for the concert. People were mesmerized. We have had glowing feed-back ..."
Suzanne & Brayton, concert promoters, Massachusetts

"Friesen is a superior performer able to synthesize a vast array of influences and ideas into an entertaining, musically satisfying whole."
- Tower Pulse

"Our son is in the sixth grade and chose last fall to begin playing cello. I was a little concerned, since he is a small-scale person and a cello is really something to lug around, but he was insistent. We took him to your concert at the Lawrence Arts Center last fall. I'm ashamed to say I had never heard of you before, but we were all blown away by your performance. Anyway, we bought "In the Shade of Angels" and our son has played it almost every night. It surfaced outside his room today, so I swiped it and played "Dances of Rasputin" over and over on the way to work. Very very cool. You're an inspiration in many ways--thanks."
- Anne, Lawrence, KS
