Alban Gerhardt's profound musicality and charisma have made him one of the most sought-after cellists of his generation. His ebullient personality is present in all his performances; he is nevertheless passionately committed to the intentions of the composer, and his recordings are always the product of an intense personal journey into the music. Gerhardt's espousal of Reger's cello sonatas and suites is thus greatly welcomed. This is fascinating and difficult music, wonderfully performed and recorded.

Gerhardt's espousal of Reger's cello sonatas and suites is thus greatly welcomed. Pianist Markus Becker has released twelve discs of Reger's keyboard music and is an ideal interpreter.
