Christian Poltéra - Press

BBT Project: Three CDs on BIS: the cello works Othmar Schoeck, Frank Martin and Arthur Honegger.

“I was quite bowled over in discovering the Cello Concerto [Frank Martin], so eloquently and sensitively played here. It is no exaggeration to say that this rapt performance presents this noble concerto with an inspirational intensity to compare with the celebrated Du Pré/Barbirolli recording of the Elgar Concerto.”
Ivan March, Gramophone April 2008

“Poltéra delivers an utterly compelling and committed performance…a wonderful disc [Christian Poltéra Plays Frank Martin]”
Erik Levi BBC Music Magazine April 2008 (BBC Music Choice)

“If you want a superb collection of Honegger’s music for cello, both chamber and orchestral, then this CD is just the ticket… by any standard this is a sensational performance.”
David Hurwitz, Classics Today November 2007
