Notes & Reviews:
Gramophone Magazine (Reger, Frantaix)
Unaccompanied cello music, even as agreeably consonant as this three-movement Reger Suite in A minor, is only bearable when it is superbly played. It is here, with fine tone and impeccable intonation. [... ] Anja Thauer is already among the elect as a cellist.
Anja Thauer is clearly an extremely gifted cellist both technically and in her character as an artist [... ] Zdenek M▀cal ... contributes an accompaniment of real character and individuality. [... ] These two artists in collaboration give us an untraditional interpretation of the concerto in the very best sense of that adjuective; that is, they refuse to accept the way parts of it are conventionally played and give it as if they had never heard anyone else in it before... [... ] Miss Thauer's technique is triumphant so the most difficult double-stopping at speed is perfectly tuned and completely assured.
