Notes & Reviews:

"...this recent Channel Classics release confirms our impression of Wispelwey as a complete performer, ranging effortlessly from the most demanding virtuosity to playing of great purity and inwardness...The first [movement of the Ligeti Sonata] is a haunting adagio - closer in style to Kodaly than to Ligeti's own later music - and surely one of the most beautiful things ever written for the cello..." -American Record Guide
