Ardent with music through and through – that is how Nicolas Altstaedt presents himself on his GENUIN debut CD. To be sure, a young instrumentalist who manages to get on the Music Council’s artists’ list cannot be merely a fire-spirit without intellect, but must present himself as a complete musician in the competition. Altstaedt’s completeness is proven not only by his playing but also by his cleverly chosen repertoire; he plays in the top league of outstanding young cellists on this CD. The works of Beethoven, Webern, Bach, Ligeti and Stravinsky are demanding and exciting treats for every cello-lover, who will surely discover new correlations between pieces of completely different styles. Listen and be amazed!

"Already the first notes make it clear that Altstaedt is a highly expressive musician who is capable of coaxing the most unbelievable timbres from his cello, thus enticing the maximum from the pieces up to the limits of the permissible."
