Raff: Cello Concertos

“…explorers of Romantic byways will find undemanding enjoyment here, especially with such an accomplished soloist as the young Daniel Müller-Schott. Deploying a lean yet intense tone, he shapes the lyrical melodies with ardour and finesse, and conjures miracles of elegant virtuosity in the finales.” --Gramophone Magazine, February 2006

5 Stars (Highest Rating) -- ''The star of this recording is undoubtedly Daniel Müller-Schott, whose intelligence in interpretation and technical assurance in delivery are breathtaking. These are very mature performances for one still at the start of his international career. These fine works are indeed lucky to have found such an accomplished advocate. That said, Hans Stadlmair, the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra and, of course, Robert Kulek all give of their impressive best too. Alfred Beaujean's insert notes are excellent and Tudor's sound is up to its usual standards (although the cello is rather too prominent for my taste in the concertos). As will have become clear through this review, I can't recommend this CD too highly.'' -- Mark Thomas, Joachim Raff Society
