Notes & Reviews:

The Guardian
There's something refreshingly straightforward and robust about the approach that Poltéra and van Steen adopt. They trust the solidity of the work's construction, and vividly bring out its internal drama as a result...the energy and ebullience about [Poltera's] playing in both works is very engaging.

BBC Music Magazine
Christian Poltéra inevitably courts comparison with the 1975 EMI disc of Rostropovich, for whom both works were written. ... in technique there's nothing to choose between them. ... the most notable point of difference is the more leisurely reading here of 'Miroirs', the fourth movement of the Dutilleux piece. For me this works wonderfully, and after it Rostropovich's version comes to sound slightly impatient (even though both recordings take the movement slower than the metronome mark.

Gramophone Magazine
Unity in the Dutilleux comes from a subtle eliding between animation and suspense...something Poltéra realises in full measure...In the Lutoslawski, interplay between an initially impassive soloist and an increasingly agitated orchestra unifies one of his most lucid formal designs.

Penguin Guide
Poltéra, a soloist of consummate artistry, will more than satisfy the discerning listener. The BIS recording has characteristic presence and definition.
