Hadland Brantelid Greig Grainger Nielsen

‘Brantelid plays one of the great Strad cellos, the ‘Boni Hegar,’ which yields sumptuously to his impulsive – occasionally reckless – big-scale vision. Hadland, more familiar as a Radio 3 New Generation artist, matches him in fantasy, subtlety and sheer emotional engagement.’ Helen Wallace
