Notes & Reviews:

David Popper (1843-1913) was not only one of the most outstanding cellists of his time but also contributed a number of top-quality compositions to the cello literature. Today Popper's name continues to be associated with Robert Volkmann's Cello Concerto in A minor op. 33, a work with which he experienced great success throughout Europe beginning in 1864. The experiences garnered by him as a traveling cello virtuoso are reflected in the more mature Cello Concerto No. 2 from 1880 and in the masterstroke formed by his one-movement Cello Concerto No. 3 of 1888.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
These are highly enjoyable works. Both cellist and orchestra are clearly enjoying themselves; and the recorded quality is so warm and well balanced that they make a fine impression. Yang was mentioned by me just now in my article on Piatti. He has been doing a job on cellist composers. Thanks!
