Notes & Reviews:

Acclaimed cellist Suren Bagratuni, winner of the silver medal at the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow and pianist Je- Ru Sun perform complete works for cello and piano by Schubert and Schumann. The CD includes Schubert's Sonatas for Arpeggione, and Schumann's Adagio and Allegro, Op. 70, Fantasy Pieces, Op. 73, and Five Pieces in Folk Style, Op. 103. Produced and engineered by Sergei Kvitko and recorded at Blue Griffin's Studio The Ballroom.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
This is played by Armenian-born Bagratuni and Taiwanese pianist Sun with commendable warmth at tempos that tend to be lively and intense. These readings seem not particularly poetic in effect initially, but then one finds that both players do feel the music where it counts, phrasing together with beauty and variety. What at first appeared to be matter-of-fact turns out to be only one side of a rather large and varied coin. I have heard performances that sounded more thoroughly idiomatic, but these artists end by convincing me of their love for this beautiful music. The recording is close up and full-toned.
