The Observer

*****

“This recording is a real tonic. I defy anyone not to smile at Steven Isserlis’s effervescent readings of Haydn’s graceful and urbane cello concertos...He spins an exquisitely light and agile line, maintaining a delightfully sunny disposition, even in each concerto’s adagio...The Bremen players add just the right degree of elegance and poise to make this a CD to treasure.”

Sunday Times

10th September 2017

“His partnership with the brilliant Bremen orchestra is a musical marriage made in heaven.”

Gramophone Magazine

Awards Issue 2017

“These interpretations sing of an artist still thoroughly in tune with his prevoius thoughts, but who is keen to develop those ideas further. He's supported every step of the way in this pursuit by the warmly responsive Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen...Isserlis's 1998 recording [of the Haydn] remains classy stuff, but this has superbly trumped it.”
