Two wonderful instrumentalists show their reverence for one of the great composers of our time: the cellist Daniel Haefliger and the pianist Gilles Vonsattel play works by Heinz Holliger on the new CD in the Artist-Consort series from GENUIN. The works range from early pieces to the composer's current production, revealing a downright astonishing stylistic variety. From the sonic journeys of discovery of the Chaconne (1975) to the explosions in colour of the Feuerwerklein (Little Fireworks, 2012), from almost inaudible processes of amalgamation in Romancendres to the relentlessly interminable rhythms in the final movement of the Partita. An outstanding retrospective, performed splendidly!

Classical-Modern Music Review
"It is a marvelous collection of Holliger works no modernist would want to miss."
Review on the Classical-Modern Music Review by Grego Applegate Edward, 6 August 2014

"The 1975 Chaconne is a bravura piece of cello-writing, very much of its time but bracing, and brilliantly executed by the soloist."
Review on the magazine Gramophone by Fabrice Fitch, 30 September 2014

Diapason 5
"Un tour de passe-passe que la virtuosité soufflante et la souplesse de Daniel Haefliger nous feraient presque oublier. (...) Du grand art défendu par d´excellents interprètes."
Review on the Magazine Diapason, May 2015 by Pierre Rigaudière
