Penguin Guide, January 2009

The Schumann Cello Concerto is the more attractive for coming on the Naxos super-budget label in a warmly spontaneous-sounding performance, very well recorded. Kliegel takes a spacious, lyrical view of the first movement, using a soft-grained tone at the start, with wide vibrato. The simple, dedicated approach to the central Langsam also brings dedicated playing, while the finale is wittily pointed, not least in the second subject.

American Record Guide, December 1995

Kaler and Kliegel make the most of the Hungarian elements in Brahms's score, and Constantine and his Irish orchestra find some nice moments in orchestral writing. Altogether it is a natural-sounding reading with some fine playing. And the price is right.


"There are not many versions of the Brahms more warmly appealing than this"
