Mozart: Serenade in B flat 'Gran Partita'
Studio Master: LSO5075  Download only  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'A goodly noise, rumbustious in the dance movements, sleek in the intensely wrought sonata form of the first movement, caressing in the slow music and almost vandalous in the yobbish rondo-finale' (Gramophone)» More

Potter: Piano Concertos Nos 2 & 4
Studio Master: CDA68151  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘With each subsequent hearing (I have listened to the disc five times now) my enjoyment has increased exponentially. There are some lovely lyrical ideas (the second subject of No 2’s first movement, for instance) and a string of others that are engagingly capricious. I am already rather fond of them. They certainly make fascinating and worthwhile additions to the Hyperion series’ (Gramophone)» More

Sheppard: Media vita & other sacred music
Studio Master: CDA68187  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'This treble sound is, well, nothing less than ‘ethereal’; I can’t come up with a more appropriate word. Nor can I for the rest of the music on this unforgettable program. The Mass, which the notes aptly describe as a ‘masterpiece’ whose plainchant model is unknown, deserves all the attention it can get—as does this recording, a masterpiece itself, the finest I’ve heard from this choir' (Classics Today)» More

Sheppard: Media vita & other sacred music
Studio Master: CDA68187  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Westminster pair Media vita with two other six-voice works by Sheppard: the Marian motet Gaude, gaude, gaude Maria and the Missa Cantate. In the generous acoustic of All Hallows, Gospel Oak, the contrapuntal intricacies of both emerge clearly, never lost in Sheppard’s carefully spaced vocal textures. It’s quite possible that 2017 marks Sheppard’s 500th anniversary year. It’s hard to think of a better birthday present than this outstanding recording of three of his finest works' (Gramophone)» More

Studio Master: CDA68185  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘Nicky Spence is superb … he deals heroically with Strauss’s more outrageous demands and, perhaps most importantly, he has just the right interpretative keenness and enthusiasm to put a persuasive case for everything he sings here’ (Gramophone)» More

Nenov: Piano Concerto & Ballade No 2
Studio Master: CDA68205  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'The sound, recorded in the Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow during January last year is excellent, especially as auditioned as high resolution 24-bit flacs. This is an astonishingly fine release of music which will continue to enthral over and over again, each successive listening revealing more of Nenov’s genius. This will surely be one of my recordings of the year' (Audiophile Audition, USA)» More

'Nenov’s epic, craggy Piano Concerto is an extraordinary work, containing huge swathes of music which genuinely sound like nothing you've ever heard … buy this and hope that Varbanov will exhume more of Nenov’s music' (TheArtsDesk.com)» More
