  1. I particularly liked the more soloistic ‘Old World’ and ‘New World’ movements; where the lyrical and expressive qualities are really brought out by Matt Haimovitz, even more so than YoYo Ma’s original interpretation. My Impressions of the other movements suffer a little from being so used to the original (soundtrack) recording that, on first listening, I’m too distracted by the small differences in the score and balance between orchestra and soloist, but I was really tickled by the Cellist’s impression of a Didgeridoo at the end of ‘Point Blank’; very effective!
