Notes & Reviews:
Worthy of comparison with those of Beethoven, Onslow's three Cello Sonatas are amongst the finest to have been written in France in the first half of the 19th century.
BBC Music Magazine, May 2013
These elegantly crafted Sonatas from 1820 combine some of the thematic rigour of Beethoven with the ornate virtuosity of Weber. These are strongly committed and highly expressive performances.
American Record Guide, July/August 2013
It is good to hear Maria Kliegel again. Her warm sound is a pleasure. They enjoy themselves with this expansive yet classically phrased music. Altogether, it is a worthwhile project well handled by all, including the engineers.
