Remy Franck, Pizzicato (16/04/2021)

“(…) Vasks’ Second Concerto for Violoncello and Strings, Klatbutne (Presence) (…) Repušić conducts very passionately with a rapturously intense climax that prepares the quiet conclusion. This, together with the very cantabile, wonderful playing of the soloist and the light singing of Anna-Maria Palii, results in a cohesive meaningful and gripping interpretation.”

Norman Lebrecht, Opera Plus (30/05/2021)

“The most significant composition of this album, whose main performer is the Munich Radio Orchestra under the baton of Ivan Repušić, is a Cello Concerto with a wordless finale for soprano solo.”
