About

Both Shostakovich and Gulda were masters at blending the levels of art and light music in a profitable way. One of them handling the music discreetly and almost refining through the back door, the other in the form of a provocative cultural shock in his role as a musical bourgeois terror.

On his recording for Ars Produktion, Friedrich Kleinhapl unites works of the two ‘opposing’ geniuses. Friedrich Kleinhapl is immensly expressive and passionate. Worldwide, he entices the audience as well as critics as a soloist and as chamber musician with his noteworthy performances. He does many things in a new and different way: starting with his posture holding the cello, and his interpretations to the thrilling way to tell the pieces’ stories during the concerts and the individual arrangement of his programs and art projects.

“Mr. Kleinhapl plied his instrument’s gorgeous woody tone with an oversize ardour, shaping lines as a singer might... abundant skills and unbridled passion.”
 – New York Times
