Martens is a fine player from South Africa who plays these classics (or baroques) of the cello literature with taste and love and a sense of phrasing and voiceleading that is satisfying to the ears. He balances his love of Casals’s romantic phrasing with a respect for the simple clarity of the early music players, resulting in a very listenable set of performances.
