Reviews

“Alexey Stadler played with firm control and the kind of tactile, honeyed tone capable of bringing listeners to their knees.” (The Times, August 2016)

“Stadler was marvellous in Shostakovich in which the cellist’s technique, tone and musicianship were in total accord with the sentiments of the score.” (Classical Source, August 2016)

“So one of the marvels in the performance ... by cellist Alexey Stadler, making a potent debut in Davies Symphony Hall with the San Francisco Symphony, was the way he relocated the center of gravity in this concerto. Instead of focusing on the first movement, ... Stadler drew the audience’s attention to the slow movement, turning it into an expansive, beautiful and bittersweet rhapsody. ... Stadler’s rendition of the slow music hit with the force of a revelation. His playing boasts a combination of coffee-coloured string tone and lithe flexibility, and he gave the music an emotional ambiguity that was compelling.” (San Francisco Chronicle, June 2016)

“At 24 years old, Alexey Stadler is a remarkably self-assured perfomer. …he retained an impressive nonchalance – and impeccable intonation.” (The Amati Magazine, December 2015)

“Stadler … combined soul and technique in perfect equilibrium …, the balances between soloist and orchestra falling into the most natural perspective.” (Classical Source, December 2014)

“... his generally restrained reading had an unusually clear trajectory which was cumulatively very convincing and expressively played, with a fine range of tone” (The Guardian, December 2014)

“In the second movement of the concerto, [Stadler] was particularly effective - the slow, lyrical sections were wonderfully 'sung'.” (Classica.fm, February 2012)
