RETIREMENT is death’s waiting room,” cellist David Pereira says, so there’s no prize for guessing the meaning of his coming series’ title, “70 Not Out” – he’s about to turn 70 but he’s not about to give up performing.
This album is a tribute to the craft of the performer-composer, an almost lost calling that classical music has begun to rediscover in recent years. Pereira has written some fine works that will hopefully find a place in the cello repertoire.
