Notes & Reviews:

Austrian cellist Martin Rummel is currently one of the busiest musicians of his generation. His career as a soloist and chamber musician is documented on well over 30 internationally celebrated CD recordings, and he is a regular guest at leading music centers on four continents. This release contains world premiere recordings of Zani's works.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2013
Throughout, the playing of the Kolner Akademie is admirably light and airy. Occasionally I felt that a gentler, more spacious approach would have given greater emphasis to the music's cantabile qualities...A fascinating issue nonetheless.

MusicWeb International, 24th September 2013
There are surprisingly few recordings of cello concertos from this period that are not by Vivaldi, especially of whole cycles like this one. That is an extra credit for this CD - the fine performances and Zani's own elegant, creative musicianship are grounds enough for procurement.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
That impression is reinforced by the nature of these performances. Rummel is a cellist with evident love for his work. The fact that Rummel has recorded them to great effect shows what a musical imagination he has. It is very evident here as well. He is a master of a range of expression from the virtuosic to the mysterious that makes these works come alive. He is joined by a group of nine string players and an imaginative couple of continuo interpreters that change the harmonic sound from movement to movement. Zani has an ear for instrumental color and an imaginative use of ornamentation that keeps the music touching the emotions and making the heart beat. It is positive and enjoyable. It is recorded with warmth and clarity.
