Notes & Reviews:

On the surface, there is little in common between the elegiac lyricism of Elgar’s Cello Concerto, the Bohemian nostalgia of Dvorák’s exquisite miniatures and the academicism of Tchaikovsky's Rococo Variations. But Jean-Guihen Queyras sees in this program a fascinating mirror effect, with each composer playing on contrasts to elucidate his intentions. Alongside the great Czech conductor Jirí Belohlávek leading the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Queyras reveals every facet of these Late Romantic works.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
This collection of famous late romantic works for cello and orchestra makes up an effective program and Queyras makes the most of it. It is a beauty, and Queyras and company play it with passion. This all adds up to a lovely and moving program that Queyras plays with insight and involvement. Along with the fine liner notes by Charles Johnston, we have an interview with Queyras that gives his thoughts on the program as well as telling us that one reason he works well with Belohlavek is because he plays the cello. Yes, that explains why they work well together on such a variety of material. This is a fine release.
