“I am now quite convinced that [Tarasova] is one of the leading cellists of her generation. She has a tone as rich as the best Bordeaux, and the sheer intelligence of her playing, particularly in Myaskovsky’s frequent long-breathed cantabile passages, commands instant admiration: I knew within bars that I was in the presence of something special, for she really makes the instrument speak.”
—Martin Anderson, CD Review, 1994

***”Tarasova earns praise for the coupling, a strong musical personality and magnificent tone.”—Penguin Guide
