 A very nice surprise March 4, 2014 By James Carleton (Camarillo, CA) See All My Reviews "I bought this CD purely on the basis of a few of the clips available. Upon listening to it today, I am very pleased that I bought it. The music is very pleasing, with some fine tunes. Herr Röntgen obviously knew the violincello well; he has done it a great service by composing these works, and Gregor Horsch and company have done a fine job of presenting them to the world. I might have liked a little better miking, as the forces sound a bit 'distant', but this is a minor quibble, as the over-all balance between orchestra and soloist is very good, with the cello 'out front', but not overly-so. Now if only someone could explain to me how it is that none of these fine pieces ever winds up on a symphony program!" Report Abuse
