BBT Project: Korngold, Bloch, Goldschmidt concertos CD with Staatsorchester Rheinische Philharmonie / Daniel Raiskin on Avi-Service for music

“…compelling recording…Steckel plays each with touching sensitivity. While Korngold beguiles, and Bloch challenges, the standout piece is Goldschmidt’s in a zestful performance.”
Yorkshire Post 10 June 2011

“Steckel understands the work [Goldschmidt Cello Concerto] better than any soloist I have heard… Not to be missed.”
Norman Lebrecht, La Scena Musicale 30 May 2011

“What impresses and indeed thrills me about Steckel’s playing is the range of colour and emotion he finds in this trio of rather wonderful scores… Here on a single disc we have the finest version of the Korngold and performances of major works by Bloch and Goldschmidt more than equal to any other. Julian Steckel – remember that name – Bravo!””
Nick Barnard, Music Web-International July 2011
