Highlighting Hans Christian's (of Rasa) unmistakable cello virtuosity, Surrender features the cello, this most soulful of instruments, in new and exciting musical contexts. The pieces on Surrender suggest a musical path that freely crosses the boundaries between Eastern and Western traditions in a fusion of cultural styles. where the classical/European voice of the cello, the Far Eastern or Middle Eastern sounds of an oud-like guitar, Balalaika or Shakuhachi are integrated with the modern pulse of electronic timbres. Each composition in this collection is decidedly different; passion dominates one piece, the next is reflective, another brings powerful rhythms - yet each is carried by a clear melodic voice which gives rise to a deep probing into the listener's soul. An intensely beautiful album that is an emotional rendering of compassion and transcendence.
