Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Schubert's so-called Arpeggione Sonata, written for a now defunct guitar-cello hybrid, is most frequently played on the cello. Kliegel's and Merscher's response to the music is sensitive. They have good rapport, and sound well-balanced in this brightly-lit recording...The three works by Schumann were written in 1849, during a period of rich creative activity. The Fantasiestucke were originally written for clarinet, but are equally effective on cello or violin. The present performance is strong and direct with warm, robust playing, particularly from the cello" - GRAMOPHONE "Schubert's so-called Arpeggione Sonata, written for a now defunct guitar-cello hybrid, is most frequently played on the cello.
