Notes & Reviews:

The cello sonatas and concert pieces on this disc demonstrate Schumann's own distinctive melodic gifts, his virtuosic writing for the piano and his emotional intensity. The fire and energy, mercurial instrumental interplay and arching lyricism of his music are masterfully handled by the internationally renowned cellist Maria Kleigel in partnership with pianist Francesco Piemontesi, who was recently selected as a BBC New Generation Artist.

MusicWeb International
Recording quality is good, especially where the cello is concerned.

American Record Guide
... this is an hour of good listening to music that could make a name for Schumann if we can hear more of it. Cellists should definitely hear this, but music lovers of the romantic persuasion would find a lot to love here, too.
