Rheinberger & Scholz: Piano Concertos
Studio Master: CDA68225  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘The Rheinberger Concerto sets off in a mood of confident pomp, its chest metaphorically puffed out, and Callaghan has the technical wherewithal to encompass all its challenges—from big chordal textures to glistening passagework—while the supremely gifted Ben Gernon coaxes terrifically colourful playing from the BBC Scottish SO’ (Gramophone)

Interlude
Stephen Hough's Dream Album
Studio Master: CDA68176  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘Hough avoids kitsch and brings to every piece his characteristic clarity, musical intelligence, wit, elegant phrasing, tasteful pedalling and an intoxicating kaleidoscope of expressive colours and moods to create an album which delights and surprises at every turn … listen to it as an entire recital album or dip in and out of it: you will be utterly charmed and transported’ (Interlude)

Suk: Piano Music
Studio Master: CDA68198  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘The early works on this new CD channel something of the same life-affirming Czech spirit that was also characteristic of Dvorák, though they also reveal considerable individuality in both melodic writing and structure … the concluding five Moods [are] impressive pieces that are a delight to listen to yet place considerable demands on the performer’ (New Classics)» More
