Balanced and rich, with good flow, lots of character
I heard Stephanie once on tour, enjoyed the cello performance that night, and bought the CD three months later with cautious expectations. Every song massages my soul. Overnight, Stephanie Winters and her cello have become my favorite performer and instrument. Stephanie has the rare ability to use her genius for the audience - the listener. It feels like she developed the play list from my personal requests and is playing to me.

After listening to clips on Stephanie Winters' site, I expected a good CD. What I received was incredible. I listen to it over and over now, especially when I write. If you love cello, buy it. If you don't know if you like cello, buy it. If you like music at all, buy it.


Live performance with Richie Havens in London (January 2007) was a great introduction to these cello sounds but the CD is even better and the title track outstanding. Good independents outlet too, well done.

Rich Borofsky

Elegant, simple, intimate, luscious, compassionate, prayerful. Music from an ope
I listened to Stephanie Winters' new CD, through the Storm, under ideal conditions--looking out the window of a plane at 40,000 feet watching clouds on my way from Boston to Los Angeles. What a trip this was! I love the pieces she's selected, the luscious, layered
arrangements, and, most of all, the deeply compassionate quality of her playing. The tone is elegant and intimate; each note is so lovingly played that it feels as if the music is coming from inside me. "Precious Lord, Take My Hand" is one of the most moving musical prayers I have ever heard.

Just to be sure I wasn't high on the altitude, I also listened to it
under less ideal conditions--in my car while doing errands in Cambridge (MA). It's just as good!

Suzanne Mueller

Love it, love it, love it!
?, ?'s emphasis on communication with her audience is evident in every note of this recording, as is her love of the music she is playing. Sometimes, multitracking can lead to a stiffness in pursuit of precision, but Stephanie achieves both precision and fluidity. Finally, as a fellow cellist, I really appreciate the tremendous technical "chops" she displays. In short: Brava!


Through the Storm
What more can I add to the reviews already posted, other than it is great driving music. My cognitive functioning is much enhanced after listening to her CD and I am better at everything I do as a result.

Jeffrey T. Bitzer

Very Nice
First heard of this artist touring with Richie Havens but couldn't make any of the nice THAT must be! This is a very easy listen and moving at times. Nicely arranged. If you don't like cello I'd pass on this.


Enviably accessible, without ever sacrificing its intelligence or depth.
I bought this CD on the strength of seeing Stephanie playing in London with Ritchie Havens. Although THROUGH THE STORM is a fine calling card for her considerable technique, what most impresses me is Stephanie's ability to communicate on a simple, emotional level.

I suspect her one-woman cello orchestra could be a dream come true for independent film makers in search of an evocative score - but, to me, Stephanie's music is its own movie.

Her choices, visually as well as musically, suggest she has a very good idea of what works for her. The end result is enviably accessible, without ever sacrificing its intelligence or depth. Highly recommended.

most soothing sounds you could ever treat your soul too.
"Through the Storm" has the most soothing sounds you could ever treat your soul too. At the end of a stressful day I put on Stephanie's C.D. and it is my guaranteed way to fall asleep. No mantras needed.

Her style is innovative and distinct. Saw her with Rachel Sage and on her own she shines. He music touches my soul and its core. Get this CD.
