Notes & Reviews:

This CD presents first recordings of two original, very different and thus far unknown Romantic works for solo cello: Julius Klengel's Suite in D minor op. 56 and Hugo Becker's Fantastische Suite, op. 14. Both of these early 20th c. works represent the two leading cellists' discovery of composing late in life. Like Paul Tortelier's strongly Bach-oriented Suite in D minor, they are important additions to the solo cello repertoire. National and international competition prizewinner cellist Markus Wagner has been Prof. of Music at Nürnberg College of Music since 2007.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Wagner plays this music with concentration and technical polish. I think he takes more repeats in the Tortelier than the composer did in his own interpretation. This is a must for cellists. It is recorded with clarity and gives us a new look at a world we thought we knew.
