Label: Innova
In which an up-and-coming cellist on the contemporary classical scene plays a series of challenging pieces composed with her in mind. On Andy Akiho's "Three Shades, Foreshadows" -- a piece that employs three different digital playback parts alongside live cello playing -- Roberts' command of extended techniques (including clothespin-on-cello usage) and more traditional requirements proves breathtaking. "Formations," written by the young composer and one-bit-electronics fetishist Tristan Perich, is the longest piece on the album, and also the most arresting.
