Gramophone, October 2015

The technical accomplishment of Kliegel’s playing is balanced by a richness of musical insight that won’t disappoint. The boldness of the opening soliloquy recalls du Pré at her finest, and yet Kliegel shares a yet deeper cup of grief in the world-weariness of the main first subject, carried with noble conviction. She takes a more improvisatory view in the lilting second group than du Pré. © 2015 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone

"Her playing has great virtuosity, but it is her phrasing especially in the Elgar, which suggests a great musical intelligence"

"She has a warm tone which matches the beautifully balanced orchestral sounds produced by the Naxos engineers"

Gramorevue (Czech Republic)

"Maria Kliegel ma nadherny plny ton, hraje s expresivni vervou, technicky suverenne (Maria Kliegel, has a beautiful sonorous tone, plays with expressive verve, technically masterfully)"

"In Maria Kliegel's beautiful cello tone I perceive the intimacy of the human voice and soul"
