Notes & Reviews:

This recording presents Schubert's famous Arpeggione Sonata, together with several other works by Central European composers. The theme "Central Europe" thus threads right through. On this recording, Adam Mital says that, "Aside from my love for the works of Franz Schubert, I am particularly attracted by the music of central and eastern Europe. Dvorák, Janácek, Martinu and Bartók composed a whole series of works for cello and piano. This present recording therefore takes the listener on a journey through eastern Central Europe, from Vienna via Bohemia, Moravia and Slovakia to Transylvania."

American Record Guide
All... is played with polish by the Swiss cellist and his talented Romanian wife. It is a highly enjoyable program arranged in a thoughtful order.

MusicWeb International
There is much to enjoy in these excellent performances which are spirited with a refreshing ardour and an engaging sensitivity.
