Tecchler's Cello
Studio Master: KGS0026  Download only  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Guy Johnston’s cello was built in Rome in 1714 by the Bavarian-born David Tecchler. To commemorate its 300th birthday, the 36-year-old English cellist devised an autobiographical programme that traces this particular instrument back to its Roman roots … this is an enjoyable excursion and documents Johnston’s versatility' (Gramophone)

'In an age awash with soulless automata masquerading as pianists, violinists and the like, it is always a pleasure to listen to Cédric Tiberghien … the recital ends with a wonderfully quixotic account of the Op 31 Scherzo that Moriz Rosenthal would surely have been at ease with, which is all you can ask for' (Audiophile Audition, USA)

'The three pieces of Estampes are similarly eloquently voiced, where 'La soirée dans Grenade' is suitably agitated, every change of mood unostentatiously communicated. Throughout the lighter Children’s Corner, the rhythms are beautifully delineated, the textures hyper-refined and the final 'Cake-walk' is unusually powerful … the recording captures most of Osborne’s huge dynamic range and there is excellent clarity and definition' (Audiophile Audition, USA)
