Virtuoso Cello Showpieces

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Leonard
By the time this disc was released in late 2007, German cellist Maria Kliegel had recorded most of the standard cello repertoire. This disc fills out her discography with some of the standard repertoire's more extravagant chamber works, or, as the disc's title describes them: "Virtuoso Cello Showpieces."
