Notes & Reviews:

World Premiere Recording: The Cultural Circle of German Business presents its "Sound and Explanation - Conveying Works in Music and Word" competition annually. The winner of the 2009 competition was Valentin Radutiu. On his debut CD, he presents not only a selection of standard works but also illustrates his interest in new and unusual repertoire. For example, he takes Saint-Saens' violin showpiece "Introduction and Rondo capriccioso" and arranges it for cello.

American Record Guide
... aplomb and accuracy... and playing so well in tune and with such sensitivity to the composer's beauty of phrasing... with notable sensitivity to the beauty of the original.

Fanfare
The sound on this disc is truly exceptional - warm, soft, and only moderately close to the instrument. If the program or great cello playing interests you, don't hesitate on this one.
