Notes and Editorial Reviews

...Maisky's Arpeggione is warm, effortless and, for the most part, judiciously phrased. Darla Hovora remains discreetly in the background (as a musical personality, that is, not as a physical presence) and although I found some of the Allegretto's rubato just a mite contrived, the performance is a good one...

...Maisky makes a lovely sound, especially in, say, An die Musik, where the cello's upper registers project with great warmth of tone...

-- Robert Cowan, Gramophone [11/1996]
