about this recording:
The six Violoncello Duets, op. 2 by Jacob Klein the Younger, recorded complete for the first time on this CD, can without a doubt be reckoned among the most beautiful of this genre from the Baroque era. A comprehensive knowledge of the cello's technical possibilities, charming effects, and ever new ideas characterize these works.

reviews:
"We owe a fascinating encounter with the Baroque violoncello to Gerhart Darmstadt: Together with Werner Matzke, he introduced us to the Six Sonatas for two Violoncelli ... outstanding suites that deserve a place in the cellists' repertoire." (Österreichische Musikzeitschrift 2/1998)
"... brilliantly and nonchalantly presented by Darmstadt and Werner Matzke." (Alte Musik actuell 1/1998)
