 NEW TCHAIKOVSKY CD BY SONY

Released on 4 March 2016 by Sony, Jan Vogler's new CD featuring works by Tchaikovsky has immediately received excellent reviews.

"Jan Vogler leads radiant performances of Tchaikovsky’s string works" (The Strad, May 2016)

 "Vogler and friends deliver an exciting account, heightened by lean, wiry strings. The ebullient Allegro con spirito launches with gusto, while the Adagio cantabile sings. Vogler’s ensemble perform with great panache..." (Gramophone, April 2016)

"Vogler’s engaging playing of the Rococo Variations is both poised and eloquent...In Variation IIIa Andante sostenuto I was struck by the impassioned tenderness of the soloist in his long and attractive cello line...Here Vogler has transposed the piece for cello and orchestra and gives an intensely moving performance infused with introspection and noticeable impressive control." (Musicweb International)

"Vogler's witty and affectionate Rococo Variations -- combining Tchaikovsky's original with the version by Wilhelm Fitzenhagen, the dedicatee -- are up there with the best. He usefully extends the cello's Tchaikovsky repertory with transcriptions of the Serenade melancholique and Meditation, but the real reason for getting the disc is the Moritzburgers' edge-of-seat Souvenir de Florence, Op 70: Tchaikovsky's most famous chamber work, with a first-rate sextet."
