Solo is the debut album on Cobra Records from cellist Nuala McKenna. Like all recent Cobra releases, you can enjoy Solo in Stereo, Multichannel and even Binaural DSD (for headphone listeners).

Nuala McKenna says “My answer: ‘Just a chair, please’, to ‘What do I need on stage?’, still provokes amusing reactions. Throughout the years I have developed a great love for the solo repertoire and learned a lot about myself in the process.

This album is the result of the experiences I had connecting with this music. The recording takes place in the wonderfully sounding church of Renswoude (Netherlands) in April 2020.

Four sunny days and yet overshadowed by the recently announced restrictions on public life due to the coronavirus outbreak. Fortunately, the fact that I’m playing solo makes the recording possible under these circumstances.

I enjoy the communion with my instrument. At the same time, I have no notion that in the next few months audience members in concert halls will be replaced by microphones all over the world.”
