"Here at Navona, we believe that despite varied influences, styles, and techniques, contemporary works by a variety of carefully selected composers can unite to represent the classical landscape as a whole. On MOTO PERPETUO, a collection of moving works for cello by March, Bartholomew, Beeler, Sherrill, Gottschalk, and Ascioti, the music is bound by the instruments’ simultaneous steadfastness and adaptability and the composers’ shared ability to seize and control the instrument’s expressive timbre and range."

Creation’s Voice

“Music is an engagement of the universal human spirit with the interior being. When there is no language to give voice to what lies within, music becomes the channel through which the spirit can speak...”
