Excellent recording!

"I can't reccommend this recording enough. I first heard Steven Isserlis on this CD (now I know that everything he has ever recorded is worth listening to) and his playing is always absolutely beautiful. Also, Michael Tilson Thomas is a terrific conductor. The other selections are great, and display Saint-Saens' versatility as a composer. This is one to buy, because you will want to listen to it again and again."
Outstanding recording

"I came across Mr. Isserlis' version of the Saint-Saens when it was played on the local radio station. After hearing Yo-Yo Ma and Janos Starker play this piece, I firmly believe that Mr. Isserlis plays this concerto better than either of the other two. There is something in Isserlis' playing that simply sets him apart from other cellists, an integrity and understanding in his performance that is refreshing. If you buy any recording of the Saint-Saens, this should be the one."
