"Oozing with intensity throughout, whether from the drama behind each note in the softer sections, the speed and virtuosity in the playing in others, or the dramatic bursts of dark heavy cello playing, this is an excellent piece of music. Full of darkness and melancholy, it’s a beautiful piece for a troubled mind."

"With 4 cellos creating sumptuous sounds and Chu's majestic piano soaring into daring flights of fancy, this is a highly evocative & stimulating affair, once again light years away from Raphael's technical death metal act Cholera but no less impressive."

- Sea of Tranquility

Shattered Dreams is a composition for 4 cellos and 2 pianos composed by Raphael Weinroth-Browne. This cinematic piece evokes a bleak narrative and a vast range of emotional landscapes, seamlessly combining the aesthetics of contemporary classical music and modern metal.
