Penguin Guide, January 2009

These three delightful Concertos are admirably played by Christian Benda, who also directs his own accompaniments. He is a present member of a well-known family of Czech musicians, a dynasty which reaches back to the court of Frederick the Great. The First G major Concerto is particularly winning, and the spirited Allegros of the other two works are hardly less amiable and each has a slow movement with a yearning contour, with the closing Rondo of the C major work the most infectious of all. The recording is excellent, and if you enjoy Cellos concertos this group is not to be missed. A small reservation is that the cadenzas, composed by another member of the Benda family, could with advantage have been more succinct.

Denver Post, February 1995

The Czech cellist, whose ancestors played for Frederick the Great, plays them with authority. - Jeff Bradley
