Following her Carnegie Hall recital debut, The Strad hailed Serbian-French cellist Maja Bogdanovic for an ""outstanding performance of exceptional tonal beauty and great maturity of interpretation."" She has since built an extensive career and an enviable reputation as one of today's leading young cellists, most recently stepping in for Mischa Maisky for a performance of Yusupov's Cello Concerto, with the composer himself conducting. Here, together with long time collaborator Maria Belooussova, Bogdanovic tackles one of the major works of the repertoire in Rachmaninov's sonata, said by the composer to contain equal roles for both cello and piano.
