Critics' Choice Recordings - January 2009

This month brings more great reviews from the leading music magazines, quality dailies and online review sites. Dacapo and Phoenix recordings are distributed worldwide by Naxos.

As David Mellor recently wrote in The Mail on Sunday: “Naxos now sells one in every five classical CDs the world over, wins golden opinions from most critics…Naxos releases a dozen newly recorded classical CDs every month, as well as some beautifully transferred historic issues, and it is getting near to the point where even the most demanding classical music buff can find his tastes fully satisfied by Naxos’s catalogue alone.” This bumper crop of great reviews certainly shows that Naxos recordings rank among the world’s very best.

As you can see here, there’s music to suit all tastes among Naxos's critically acclaimed titles, as well as some very enjoyable releases from Dacapo and Phoenix Edition.
