March 2010

"A valuable and attractive sequence of British works for viola and piano…well worth investigating."
-Edward Greenfield, Gramophone, June 2010

“[This disc] contains more than enough fine material to lift it well out of the ‘specialists only’ category….the music adapts beautifully to the subtle range of light and shade [Outram] conjures from his instruments in every context… Rolton, too, is an alert and excellent accompanist throughout.”
-Malcolm Hayes, BBC Music Magazine, May 2010


ODE 1157-2 LINDBERG Graffiti
"The performances are superb."
-Paul Driver, The Sunday Times, 1st August 2010

"Layers of sumptuous harmony melt into each other, masterfully controlled by one of the great modern orchestrators…the orchestra under Sakari Oramo is a treasure trove of colour."
-Neil Smith, BBC Music Magazine, May 2010

"The instrumental surfaces are brilliantly accomplished, unmistakeably the product of the here and now… the recorded sound is good."
-David Gutman, International Record Review, March 2010


8.572135 ROUSSEL Symphony No. 4
“An excellent disc, splendidly and idiomatically performed and a superb advertisement for composer, conductor and orchestra. Highly recommended.”
-Guy Rickards, Gramophone, June issue

"The Andante, recalling Roussel's earlier period, is utterly magical in Deneve's hands….there is beautiful playing from the RSNO."
-Christopher Dingle, BBC Music Magazine, June issue

“The fourth instalment of Stephane Deneve’s Roussel cycle is, if anything, even better than its predecessors. The music’s idiom, at once tight reined and richly inventive, brims with opportunities for the woodwind and brass section principals which the RSNO’s classy line-up takes superbly.”
-Malcolm Hayes, Classic FM Magazine, May issue


8.572296 DEBUSSY Orchestral Works · 3
"Much of this disc is excellent. Jun Markl persuades his orchestra to extremes of vulgarity and tenderness, which is as it should be in the extraordinary Images….there is much here to enjoy."
-Roger Nichols, BBC Music Magazine, June issue

"In Jun Markl's expert hands one can immediately sense Debussy… [Markl] magically evokes iridescent textures from which points of sound emerge like piquant sources of light on a canvas. A captivating performance enhanced by four bonus orchestrations."
-Julian Haylock, Classic FM Magazine, May issue

"Markl creates the melancholic atmosphere well here, with lots of detail apparent in a beefy orchestral sound, recorded at a high dynamic level."
-Mark Pullinger, International Record Review, March issue


8.557529 SCHOENBERG String Trio
"Angry expressionism gives way to wistful lyricism in this latest instalment… Schoenberg's voice - complexity and expressive immediacy inextricably interwoven - is heard to powerful effect."
-Arnold Whitall, Gramophone, June issue


“Pletnev turns Tchaikovsky’s great ballet into a driving orchestral showpiece.”
-John Warrack, Gramophone, June issue

"Pletnev and his crack forces play the high-energy numbers for all they are worth while not neglecting the charm and swooning romanticism of other sections…vividly recorded and never less than captivating."
-Jeremy Nicholas, Classic FM Magazine, June issue

“The RNO’s sounds has certainly improved over the years, especially in the woodwind department…Pletnev does ignite the big moments.”
-David Nice, BBC Music Magazine, June issue
