Notes & Reviews:

The two soloists - a guitarist and a cellist - comes together in a surprisingly homogeneous collaboration of some really popular classics, with an approach that is both fresh and vitalising. The transpositions of some repertoire of other instruments to the cello and guitar is novel, but work exceedingly well under Wang and Sollscher. Both soloists are never bombastic, never showy, never loud, but both never cease to affect their listeners.

BBC Music Magazine
... the chemistry between Wang and Söllscher producing performances that are extremely polished but spontaneous in this intimately recorded programme.

Gramophone Magazine
The works are well chosen, sensitively arranged and tastefully ordered. More importantly, though, the playing is exquisite. Rarely have I heard Wang so beautifully restrained; rarely have I heard Söllscher so naturally expressive.
