Notes & Reviews:

The grand opera stage meets the aristocratic chamber sphere. Almost a quarter of a century ago the outstanding cellists David Geringas and Emil Klein recorded cello duets by Gioacchino Rossini and Joseph Haydn. Even today this recording sparkles with freshness, without its equal, without a speck of dust, making this highly rewarding rerelease an experience that is absolutely on a par with a premiere.

David Geringas and Emil Klein have the opportunity to employ the entire tonal palette of their instruments. From the deepest bass to the highest registers, everything is put to use; heartrending lyricism and classical simplicity as well as absolutely orchestral drama and chamber-musical tonal beauty occur within the narrowest space. The MDG sound engineers even then saw to it that a thoroughly natural sound picture was shaped.
