 Exquisitely performed! November 28, 2012 By Forest Hansen (Easton, MD) See All My Reviews "Sol Gabetta is crisp and clear when that's appropriate in the first and third movements of Haydn's Cello Concerto, and gives the second movement a marvellous poignancy. She matches Rostropovich for the best recording of this lovely piece." Report Abuse
