Penguin Guide, January 2009

At super-bargain price, Maria Kliegel and Kristin Merscher are highly competitive. The performances are well shaped and sensitive, though perhaps lacking the last ounce of character. All the same, neither the Schubert nor the Schumann coupling will disappoint at this price, given the general high standard of playing and recording.

Penguin Guide, January 2009

Maria Kliegel and Kristin Merscher couple these charming Schumann miniatures with the Schubert Arpeggione and turn in fresh and musical performances and are recorded in very clean and well-focused sound.


"Kliegel's and Merscher's response to the music is sensitive"


"und spielen ernsthaft-gemessen ohne jede eingefahrene Routine (and play earnestly, respectfully and with sparkle)"

Classic CD

" outstanding performance...every melody balanced between simplicity and deep melancholy, the rapport between the two instrumentalists allowing full expression of the interplay between cello and piano."
