Penguin Guide, January 2009

Maria Kliegel and the Polish national Radio Orchestra at Katowice under Antoni Wit also give a very good account of both concertos that can be confidently recommended at this price, and on all counts is well worth considering.

BBC Music Magazine, November 1996

"Through someone else's performance I had fallen temporarily out of love with the first of Shostakovich's two cello concertos, but my affections swelled up again on hearing this marvellous performance... Not for the first time, Naxos in its deliberate cultivation of a modestly-priced catalogue has also produced a first-class musical offering."

Classic CD, October 1996

"Maria Kliegel's account of Shostakovich's First Cello Concerto is mightily impressive...[she] is strongly compelling throughout he ...reading of Concerto No. 2...these accomplished performances are very unlikely to disappoint...another bargain from Naxos."

Gramophone, October 1996

"Kliegel manages to convey a feeling of spontaneous improvisation and her command of the instrument is impressive. Naxos's recording is nicely ambient."
