Simone loves to play powerful music that touches the soul, and these are some of her favorites.
“I was mesmerized by this piece from the moment I first heard it! The music took me on a journey through different exotic landscapes and I lost track of time. Spanish flourishes further add a unique flavor and the title “Preludio Fantasia” is a perfect description.”
“I love how deeply expressive this piece is and how well suited it is to the voice of the cello. It is in the somber key of C minor, and uses the rich open tone of the instrument to create pillars of sound. Although highly structured overall, some sections sound very fluid, almost improvised.”
