Notes & Reviews:

Cellist Anne Gastinel delights audiences around the world with performances that place above all else the joy of exchange, which she regards as the very essence of music. In this, her latest release, Ms. Gastinel performs LArpeggione, one of the most famous pieces for cello, along with her own transcriptions of Schuberts most beloved lieder.

Gramophone Magazine
Anne Gastinel gives a charming apologia for this programme of transcriptions, in the form of a letter to Schubert, but the best justification lies in the appropriateness of the material and the standard of performance. The Arpeggione Sonata, indeed, sounds better on the cello than on any other conventional instrument, and the fact that some passages lie uncomfortably high is no problem for someone with Gastinel's technique. The song transcriptions are well chosen and faithful... and Gastinel compensates for the absence of words with inspired changes of tone colour. Claire DTsert reveals herself as a most accomplished, lively accompanist

The Strad
I found myself completely compelled by the heartfelt warmth and spontaneity that Gastinel and DTsert bring to [Schubert's] melodic invention. à This duo makes such a marvellously fresh case for this well-loved friend, and imparts so much soul (for want of a better word) in the Adagio, that one can only say it is desirable.
