Notes and Editorial Reviews

The account of Bloch's Schelomo from Fournier and Wallenstein is the work of two great cellists. Fournier, as one would expect, shows sovereign command over the solo part, while Wallenstein, himself an outstanding cello soloist until he traded bow for baton, conjures up a spellbinding accompaniment. Solomon is indeed magnificently arrayed in this rendition, and very much larger than life in his passions. The Berlin Philharmonic is in fine form in this warmly atmospheric recording, which is well balanced and has impressive impact. – Ted Libbey, author of The NPR Guide to Building a Classical CD Collection The account of Bloch's Schelomo from Fournier and Wallenstein is the work of two great cellists.
