BBC Music Magazine

February 2008


“The First Solo Sonata, premiered by Rostropovich in 1960, is altogether a stronger piece, the sustained intensity of the opening movement and the vibrancy of the Finale carried off with tremendous aplomb by Alexander Chaushian. In the two Duo Sonatas Yevgency Sudbin once again confirms his credentials as a superbly incisive musician, bringing a wealth of colour and variety of tone to Weinberg's somewhat austere piano parts.”

New York Times

“Alexander Chaushian, barely out of his teens, is a fine cellist, and a worthy first recipient of the Young Concert Artists' Summis Auspiciis Prize, to be given to those 'with highest expectations.' In his case, though, the expectations are already being met.”
