CDA68093  28 April 2017 Release 

'One of the particular delights of Cohen’s Arcangelo is the idiomatic continuo-playing of the lutenist Thomas Dunford … the soprano Katherine Watson gives a stylish, sensitive performance' (Gramophone)» More

Czerny: Piano Concertos
CDA68138  28 April 2017 Release 

'Howard Shelley and the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra are, by now, firm friends, and it’s thanks to his intimacy with every note of the orchestral score, as well as that of the piano part, that makes these readings so rewarding' (Gramophone)» More

Virgin and Child
Studio Master: SIGCD474  Download only  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'The choral sound is distinctive. Astringent countertenors pierce through sweet, rounded sopranos, and the whole is anchored by a wonderful breadth in the basses … Contrapunctus remain king in a very crowded market place' (Gramophone)» More

Guyot: Te Deum laudamus & other sacred music
CDA68180  28 April 2017 Release 

Guyot emerges from this disc as a marvellously fluent composer … the five adult men of Cinquecento—here joined by the countertenor David Allsopp—are, as always, absolutely flawless in the performance of this music. Even by the best standards of today their ensemble, balance and intonation are beyond reproach' (Gramophone)» More

Schumann: Davidsbündlertänze, Humoreske & Blumenstück
CDA68186  28 April 2017 Release 

'This is a reasoned assessment, at times a serious analysis, of a work of music that dances on the very cliff-edge of sanity. Buratto, wise beyond his years, is definitely a talent to watch' (Musical Toronto, Canada)

Studio Master: CDA68143  2CDs for the price of 1 NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Tiberghien, with his crystalline sonorities and pinpoint clarity of articulation, and Ibragimova gleefully savour their jousting dialogues and rapid role-reversals in the fast movements … Tiberghien and Ibragimova come close to my ideal Mozartian duo, in performances that further whet the appetite for the rest of the series' (Gramophone)» More
