Musical insight is not a catchphrase in this case. Having worked together since 1987 and having studied Beethoven’s cello works from 1995 onwards, Martin Rummel and Gerda Guttenberg researched the genuine base of such a performance. This is no random combination of artists, and there are no misunderstandings, no solo attempts, no questions of competence. They are an astonishing ensemble and are emanating aplomb, producing a rich sound and enjoying the music.
