The print version of the accompanying booklet text by Eberhard Feltz in English!

After his Haydn cello concertos CD released on GENUIN was widely acclaimed by listening audiences and critics alike, the exceptional cellist Nicolas Altstaedt has now released his next CD on the Leipzig-based label. This time, in an intimate recording of chamber music works, he reveals his tremendous versatility—together with pianist José Gallardo he lets the boundaries between musical periods fade away. In the sensational premiere recording, the duo partners give a soulful rendition of Wilhelm Killmayer’s Romances and Bagatelles and in Schumann’s late works unfold such expansive lines that you hardly dare to draw a single breath. This is a major production of minor masterpieces.

"Rising Star - Great artists of tomorrow". See the teaser of the BBC Music Magazine in July 2010.

"He is a musician of the future and one whose future holds great promise. Nicolas Altstaedt not only plays the cello with amazing beauty, he also takes a broad perspective as a musician. Early Music and period performance practice are as important to him as the most recent works of New Music."
Neue Zürcher Zeitung, September 3, 2010

"In the hands of the wonderful cellist Nicolas Altstaedt the passions of the two Romantic composers of two different ages are stirred to life. Liberty which you can hear."
Tagesspiegel, September 26, 2010

"The performance by Nicolas Altstaedt and José Gallardo is simply breathtaking."
Supersonic Award Winner in Pizzicato, Nov. 2010
