Notes & Reviews:

This successful Roentgen edition would not be complete without his cello concertos-interpreted by Gregor Horsch, principle cellist of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam. Roentgen has a special preference for the instrument, as evidenced by these pieces inspired, in part, by famous cellist Julius Klengel.

Gramophone Magazine, February 2014
Like so many academic late-Romantics, Röntgen is strong on control but not so much on flights of fancy...Huge credit to Gregor Horsch, David Porcelijn and the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra for doing their utmost to fan the modest flames of Rontgen's inspiration.

MusicWeb International, 2nd December 2013
The CPO performances and recording reflect well on all concerned and the notes are helpful...There's much that is likeable but not a great deal that is genuinely memorable.
