Review By Classic CD,October 1996

"Maria Kliegel's account of Shostakovich's First Cello Concerto is mightily impressive...[she] is strongly compelling throughout he ...reading of Concerto No. 2...these accomplished performances are very unlikely to disappoint...another bargain from Naxos."

Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Maria Kliegel and the Polish national Radio Orchestra at Katowice under Antoni Wit also give a very good account of both concertos that can be confidently recommended at this price, and on all counts is well worth considering.
