Have you ever experienced tightrope walking on the cello? Because the enormously productive Rastrelli Cello Quartet, whose latest CD reached the top 10 list for four weeks straight on Russian iTunes, offers nothing less than this. Who needs an entire orchestra for Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet when four cellos can come along with such a tremendous sound that is full of color and wit? Why do one need many singers and a huge stage for Puccini's Tosca when the four men can also move us to tears? More than just four cellos, this is cello playing to the fourth degree!
