On Feb. 24, 2011 AfriClassical posted: “Plain Dealer: 'With bow in one hand, pacifier in another, Cleveland Orchestra violist stands out as both artist, mother.'” The article, by Zachary Lewis, revealed this information about a future recording now in the works:

Now she's putting the finishing touches on a second disc due out in the fall, an album of Russian viola sonatas with pianist Glen Inanga.” AfriClassical has interviewed the Nigerian pianist Glen Inanga, so we forwarded the blog post to him and said we were eager to hear the CD he and Eliesha Nelson are making, because the two are both virtuoso performers.

Glen replied with a bit more information on the project: Thanks. I am eager to hear the finished product too as this is indeed some great Russian Romantic repertoire.” Glen Inanga is Nigerian and Jennifer Micallef is from Malta. They have made two recordings together as the Micallef-Inanga Duo.
