Bach: Cantatas Nos 54, 82 & 170
Studio Master: CDA68111  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'An ideal and rewarding programme for Iestyn Davies’s limpid countertenor … his words are invariably clear and he relishes the interplay with the Arcangelo ensemble’s soloists' (The Sunday Times)» More

Financial Times, Richard Fairman
Bach: Cantatas Nos 54, 82 & 170
Studio Master: CDA68111  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Counter-tenor Iestyn Davies and the period-instrument Arcangelo conducted by Jonathan Cohen find joyfulness, too, which takes wing wherever uplifting emotions beckon' (Financial Times)» More

The Times, Neil Fisher
Bach: Cantatas Nos 54, 82 & 170
Studio Master: CDA68111  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'The main pleasure in this album is the partnership between the eloquent soloist and the tangy playing of Arcangelo, wonderfully led by Jonathan Cohen, who doubles as a fizzing organist' (The Times)» More

Bach: Cantatas Nos 54, 82 & 170
Studio Master: CDA68111  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'[Iestyn Davies'] singing is expressive, nuanced and extremely stylish and the voice falls pleasingly on the ear at all times. He consistently puts across the meaning of the words. The playing of Arcangelo is expert and unfailingly stylish and, as I’ve already commented, one has the sense of chamber music-making' (MusicWeb International)» More

The Europadisc Review

Studio Master: CDA68111  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

The Europadisc Review
Kozeluch: Piano Concertos Nos 1, 5 & 6
Studio Master: CDA68154  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Howard Shelley is as persuasive a soloist as one could wish for, bringing a limpid delicacy to the slow movements and a tempered brilliance to the outer movements that makes the most of their fantasia-like developments  … ornamentation is discreet and stylish, as are the accompaniments, the London Mozart Players in their element, with the orchestral tuttis always pert and finely shaded' (The Europadisc Review)» More

Tallis: Spem in alium & other sacred music
Studio Master: CDA68156  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'This final volume maintains to the last the exceptionally high standards of the series. That applies to the performances, the recorded sound and the documentation. I hope it goes without saying that the remark applies particularly to the calibre of the music. This is the end of a highly distinguished contribution to the discography of this great Tudor master. Following the series has been an enriching experience' (MusicWeb International)

Bach: Goldberg Variations
Studio Master: CDA68146  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Hewitt’s Bach-playing has always been a fine balancing between Baroque style, a strong affinity with dance and a restrained romantic sensibility, and on this 2015 recording there are quite a few instances where she deploys weight and emotionalism, as though she is emphasising the music’s universality' (ClassicalSource.com)» More

Elgar: Enigma Variations & other orchestral works
Studio Master: CDA68101  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Brabbins’s spacious conducting of Enigma Variations is altogether special, a devoted accomplishment of the most-beguiling consideration, all placed to perfection and interwoven so that everything belongs' (ClassicalSource.com)» More

Artamag, France
Stojowski & Wieniawski: Violin Concertos
Studio Master: CDA68102  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'C’est brillant, passionnant, foudroyant parfois' (Artamag, France)

The Observer, Fiona Maddocks
Bach: Cantatas Nos 54, 82 & 170
Studio Master: CDA68111  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Davies’s singular gifts of open-hearted expression, reined in to perfection and with no excess or indulgence, are expertly balanced by Arcangelo’s prominent solo musicians. Early in the year, a favourite disc already' (The Observer)» More

Pizzicato, Luxembourg, Alain Steffen
Bach: Goldberg Variations
Studio Master: CDA68146  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Auch bei ihrem zweiten Anlauf vermag Angela Hewitt zu überzeugen. Allerdings fällt ihre Interpretation sehr individuell aus, so dass sie die Goldberg-Liebhaber sicher in zwei Lager spalten wird … Spieltechnisch ist Hewitt auf allerhöchstem Niveau' (Pizzicato, Luxembourg)
