Hill & Boyle: Piano Concertos
Studio Master: CDA68135  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'The Boyle concerto is the stand-out here—compensating for its rather bland companion—and this is a very welcome addition to the Romantic Piano Concerto series' (MusicWeb International)

Beethoven: Piano Sonatas Opp 90, 101 & 106
Studio Master: CDA68073  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'I was halfway through writing up Alice Coote's wonderfully fragile 'L'heure exquise' album when I unwrapped Steven Osborne's Hammerklavier Sonata. Raw, dangerous, profound—this is a true marriage of daring and conviction. It says much for his readings of Opp 90 and 101 that they are in no way overshadowed by the mighty Hammerklavier' (Gramophone)

Elgar & Walton: Cello Concertos
Studio Master: CDA68077  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Steven Isserlis's eagerly anticipated return to Elgar's autumnal masterpiece captivates in its unexaggerated depth of feeling, supploeness of expression, tingling spontneity and beaming fantasy. He receives scrupulously sympathetic support from the Philharmonia under Paavo Järvi. Enticing couplings, too—Walton's Concerto and Holst's seductive invocation both enjoying gloriously trenchant advocacy' (Gramophone)

Harris & Adams: Violin Concertos
Studio Master: SIGCD468  Download only  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Technically beyond reproach and musically imaginative … Andrew Litton and the BBC Symphony provide superb, supple support. Not to be missed' (Gramophone)» More

Harvey: Deo
Studio Master: SIGCD456  Download only  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'This is a dazzling confident disc of some very challenging music Jonathan Harvey's church music is certainly difficult, but the results are rewarding indeed. St John's here turn in outstanding performances of music that should be far better known, complemented by two positively riotous organ pieces performed by Edward Picton-Turbervill' (Gramophone)

Lobo: Lamentations & other sacred music
Studio Master: CDA68106  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Alonso Lobo's Lamentations represent Iberian polyphony at its most tender and scented. I got to know the piece via John Eliot Gardiner's tight recording from almost a decade ago, this newcomer has all the expense of Westminster Cathedral itself, unfolding as if in vaulted paragraphs. Awesome!' (Gramophone)

Tallis: Lamentations & other sacred music
Studio Master: CDA68121  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Tallis's Lamentations of Jermiah are extremely well wrought and ravishing polyphonic works which have inspired many recordings. Here, The Cardinall's Musick find a gravitas and rich vocal sonority reminiscent of The Taverner Consort (EMI, 5/89) which is peerless among male vocal ensemble releases' (Gramophone)
