"If someone has ever dreamed of hearing the perfect combination of cello and piano in an unusual repertoire, he had the opportunity to do so on Monday evening in Radziejowice.(...)
Monday night was something special, unlike everyone else. Emotions reached their climax. You remember those days for the rest of your life. The chamber concert featured two outstanding young musicians, Zuzanna Sosnowska (cello) and Magí Garcías (piano). You’ve heard such duets so often. The sound of the cello didn’t seem to surprise anyone, and yet... Zuzanna Sosnowska has completely changed our idea of this instrument and its possibilities. The instrument had a rich, honey sound that was soothing to the ear. That was the base. On it Sosnowska built pyramids of tones, and presented her extraordinary craftsmanship.
Sometimes the cello was reminiscent of a melody from a pre-war recording, which was deeply touching. Sometimes she was aggressive, unruly and contentious. Sometimes she turned into a jazz bass. Another time it was with a dramaturgy reminiscent of the darkest compositions of Shostakovich.
And a piano. No, it wasn’t an accompaniment, it was a parallel voice. Partnership agreement. Garcías showed exceptional taste, awareness and sensitivity. He played with beautiful sounds and also used the technique of the prepared piano. The instruments sounded perfectly together at any time. They followed each other, inspired each other by their color and energy. Together they were silent, together they whispered, together they mourned. The selection of the repertoire alone proves that we are dealing with mature musicians who are mature despite their young age. They played the Sonata for cello and piano by S. Laks and the Sonata 4 Cities by Turkish pianist and composer F. Say. (...)
It was more than a music. It's catharsis, purification, coming back to the springs. There is no need to use words to tell whole truth about human and his destiny. And it's such powerful way. It took long time to recover from this extraordinary concert."
