Pärt: Tintinnabuli
Studio Master: CDGIM049  NEW   Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'A disc of quite exceptional, at times heart-stopping, beauty. While there may be other Pärt recordings in this, his 80th birthday year, it is difficult to imagine there being a finer one' (International Record Review)» More

Liszt: The Complete Songs, Vol. 3 – Gerald Finley
Studio Master: CDA67956  NEW   Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Le baryton canadien a du style, du lyrisme dans la confidence … de la théâtralité sans excès quand le ton plus extraverti tend à franchir les frontières du lied' (Diapason, France)» More

Prokofiev & Shostakovich: Cello Concertos
Studio Master: CDA68037  NEW   Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Le violoncelliste anglais privilégie une approche sévère, austère quoique toujours très variée et colorée. Le caractère extraverti, sans faiblir, se nuance d'une teinte fauve et d'irisations assez inattendues. La partie soliste est jouée de façon hallucinante, avec un phrasé merveilleux et une grande maîtrise technique' (Diapason, France)» More

'Jack Liebeck … est un interprète de grande qualité … soucieux de mettre en lumière les finesses de l'écriture de Bruch, dans un dialogue très subtil avec l'orchestre' (Classica, France)» More

Classica, France
Debussy: Images & Préludes II
Studio Master: CDA67920  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'"Choc de l'année 2014" pour son disque consacré à Busoni, le pianiste canadien Marc-André Hamelin émerveille tout autant dans cette anthologie debussyste. Cet enregistrement s'inscrit dans le sillage des réalisations de Benedetti Michelangeli ou de Zimerman dont il possède sans conteste le sens aigu de l'architecture, de la beauté pure et de la volupté de l'instant. Un disque de référence' (Classica, France)

Debussy: Images & Préludes II
Studio Master: CDA67920  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Famed for tackling the most ridiculously difficult scores, Marc-André Hamelin here presents some of the most subtle … this is truly special Debussy playing' (International Piano)» More

Mozart: Horn Concertos
Studio Master: CDA68097  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Not least, where most players of the natural horn seek to minimise the difference in tone of those pitches that can only be got out of the instrument by hand-stopping and tricks of breathing, Pip Eastop positively flaunts them, suggesting how Mozart may have actually relied upon the effect of a muffled note here or a chromatic snarl there to help shape and colour his phrasing' (BBC Music Magazine)» More

Scriabin: Complete Poèmes
Studio Master: CDA67988  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Scriabin's microcosmic soundworlds, powered by chains of augmented and chromatically liquefied harmonies, require a transcendental technique and the ability to conjure up simultaneously myriad differentiated sounds and textures. Ohlsson possesses remarkable facility … unleashes immense reserves of power … has the required delicacy of touch' (BBC Music Magazine)» More

Vieuxtemps: Cello Concertos
Studio Master: CDA67790  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'[Gerhardt shows himself] home in the music's more sensational moments (serving up a remarkable level of detail without sacrificing a sense of line) and in its more expressive passages (his ardent performance of the middle movement of the Vieuxtemps First is especially beautiful) … all in all, a welcome release' (International Record Review)» More

Machaut: The dart of love
Studio Master: CDA68008  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'The programme is nicely varied in mood and scoring, ranging from four-voice ballades and motets to a single-voice virelai, and every combination in between … a thoughtful essay by Anne Stone makes audible sense of the many connections between the pieces on this valuable, impressive recording' (Gramophone)» More
