Notes & Reviews:

Cellist Christophe Coin turns his attention to one of the founding fathers of modern cello playing, a Frenchman active in the mid-18th century, Martin Berteau. Cello Sonatas and Airs make up this program - including one sonata in which all three cellists take part. The three of them play on instruments from the epoch, whilst Markus Hunninger provides harpsichord accompaniment. The accompanying booklet essay traces the lifespan of Martin Berteau.

BBC Music Magazine, June 2014
Berteau, undeservedly forgotten, is revealed as wonderfully tuneful, harmonically logical and rhythmically light-footed in sonatas and airs. An unqualified delight.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2014
Coin's intimately conversational playing seems to convey perceptive subtleties effortlessly...Coin also plays with a staggering range and dexterity of bowing...This is a veritable masterclass.

Expedition Audio Recommended
For the cello student or aficionado, this is an obvious acquisition, but its appeal will reach much further than this. For any music lover, it will be a delightful discovery, all considerations of historic interests and musical specialties aside. It's a charming album I've enjoyed over and over again. read more
