8.572078 HUBAY: Violin Conertos
“Hanslip’s radiant artistry and phrasal sensitivity is highly seductive…such is her mastery of line, deeply-felt sincerity and glorious tonal opulence that she could easily be mistaken for Itzhak Perlman at his mid-1970s peak…devoted support from Andrew Mogrelia and the Bournemouth SO and well-balanced engineering rounds out a splendid release.”
-Julian Haylock, BBC Music Magazine  November issue

“The music of both concertos is always engaging. So is Hanslip’s playing, which is as well, since Hubay doesn’t let her stop much – a challenge she meets with ceaseless energy, supported by lively orchestral accompaniment.”
-Malcolm Hayes, Classic FM  November  issue

“Chloe Hanslip clearly has the technical measure of these works and seems completely at home in the sometimes demanding writing.”
-Carl Rosman, International Record Review  November  issue

“Hanslip’s generous sweetness of tone is well displayed here, with good support from the orchestra. She is also more than a match for the virtuoso fireworks that Hubay throws at his soloists in the vigorous fiddling of the finales.”
-John Warrack, Gramophone  November  issue


8.570589 SCHMIDT: Symphony no. 2
“A splendid instalment to Sinaisky’s Schmidt symphony series… a splendid recording from Naxos…. Even if one has the symphony already, I urge you to try this newcomer. One cannot have too much Schmidt.”
-Guy Rickards, Gramophone  November issue

“The sound is not far short of Naxos’ best…those who are unfamiliar with or remain sceptical towards Schmidt’s music should acquire both of these discs forthwith.”
-Richard Whitehouse , International Record Review  December 2009

“Vassily Sinaisky and his Swedish orchestra excel.”
-BBC Music Magazine Christmas issue


8.570002 MENDELSSOHN: String Quartets Vol. 2
“Detailed and confident readings from the impressive New Zealand Quartet… The NZQ clearly love this music, and their strong sense of internal balance allows them to bring out many telling details that often go unnoticed… with one more volume to come, this promises to be an outstanding set.”
-Duncan Druce, Gramophone November issue


8.572041 STRAUSS Josephs-Legende
“JoAnn Falletta cares greatly for shape, line and detail, and the Buffalo Philharmonic musicians respond with some fine playing and with good balance… this is a very recommendable disc, well recorded, and showcasing am  American orchestra and conductor who make fine music together and who certainly relish Strauss’s many gifts to them, and, in turn, to us.”
-Colin Anderson, International Record Review December issue

 “[These suites] make a good disc…. Fine orchestral playing.”
-Michael Kennedy, The Sunday Telegraph, 31ST January 2010
