Notes & Reviews:

The twenty-one etudes of Jean-Louis Duport belong to the standard repertoire of every aspiring cellist. Peter Horr performs the unfamiliar concertos for violoncello and orchestra from the second half of the eighteenth century by this French composer. Until recently the concertos lay slumbering in the archives; on this CD the multifaceted Horr, in his dual role as conductor of the Hofkapelle Weimar and solo cellist, presents their recording premiere.

”One of the rewards of writing for this magazine is discovering new composers and wonderful music. Hearing this album was a happy surprise and a rewarding experience. The MDG hybrid surround sound is bright and clear, with a warm resonance. The soloist is not given an artificial aural prominence, but is in normal balance with the orchestra.”-Fanfare
