Pablo Ferrández's first CD (Dvorak and Schumann Concertos) was recorded with the Stuttgart Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Radoslaw Szulc and was highly praised in the international press: "Pablo Ferrández is a fine performer, with a warm tone and an impulsive, if refined, lyricism that makes him a natural interpreter for Schumann's concerto, with its melancholy elegance and flashes of mercurial wit." (Tim Ashley, The Guardian), "It is in Dvorak that Ferrández announces himself as a cellist of stature" (Janet Banks, The Strad). Pablo has recorded a second CD with Italian concertos by Rossini and Menotti with the Kremerata Baltica conducted by Heinrich Schiff.
