The Lily & the Rose
Studio Master: CDA68228  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘The six adult male singers of The Binchois Consort under Andrew Kirkman perform on a very high qualitative level indeed … there are two excellent earlier recordings of Frye’s Mass Flos regalis but The Binchois Consort may well come closer than their predecessors to the true spirit of the work, particularly in terms of personnel and pacing’ (Gramophone)

MacMillan: String Quartets
Studio Master: CDA68196  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘As the Royal String Quartet’s new recording of his three numbered string quartets reminds us, though, MacMillan is a formidable composer in in pretty much every genre in which he works … all receive performances that, for fervor and notational accuracy, may as well be described as definitive … for sheer intensity and presence, the Royals hold the crown in this repertoire’ (The Arts Fuse, USA)» More

Strauss (R): Duet-Concertino; Beethoven: Trio; Glinka: Trio pathétique
Studio Master: CDA68263  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘Don’t overlook this gem of a recording … the Strauss Duet-Concertino, a seldom-recorded and hitherto misunderstood work, is worth the cover price alone … the solo performances are first-rate and the strings and harp of the SNO under Sian Edwards’ direction offer an excellent accompaniment, never forcing the pace’ (MusicWeb International)

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

‘A superlative album in all ways, lusciously played and recorded … Suk spins gloriously harmonised late-Romantic melodies that soar one moment to sink into lingering Bohemian legend and dream the next. The reverie of it all is extraordinary’ (Classical Source)» More

Dohnányi: String Quartet, Serenade & Sextet
Studio Master: CDA68215  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘What has characterised everything the Nash Ensemble has done since their very earliest days is a sense of absolute joy in music making and a passion which glows out of every single note they play. If we might reasonably expect a certain predictability to have crept into their performances after half-a-century at the very top of their game, nothing could be further from the truth with this invigorating and gloriously immersive journey through three very different chamber works by Ernö Dohnányi’ (MusicWeb International)» More

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

‘Inveterate news junkies of the world, your way out has come. For at least one good hour of your otherwise doom-laden day, you have a reason to turn off Fox or CNN and drift on feathery clouds to a far sweeter place. Your exit has been most graciously supplied by pianist Stephen Hough … whose latest recorded achievement may well be hailed as the most engaging, charming, and delightful recording of the year … or even the decade’ (Stereophile)

Charpentier: Leçons de ténèbres, Litanies & Magnificat
Studio Master: CDA68171  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘It epitomises the qualities of this flexible group and their indefatigable director Jonathan Cohen: interesting and under-appreciated repertoire, wonderfully elegant, stylishly executed playing, and adroitly chosen soloists … I would argue these sensitively played and truthfully engineered performances demand to be heard. Indeed I found the whole disc both spiritually fulfilling and artistically rewarding’ (MusicWeb International)» More
