PRESS REVIEWS 2011



June 2011

8.572142 MOMPOU Piano Music, Volume 6
‘This invaluable disc rounds off Jordi Masó’s cycle of Mompou’s piano music with previously undiscovered pieces…All this music is finely recorded and played with special devotion by Jordi Masó, who also provides a superbly informed essay’.
-Bryce Morrison, Gramophone Magazine, October 2011

 

ODE 1103-2Q PROKOFIEV Complete Piano Sonatas
‘Formidably played and well recorded, it will alert even the most seasoned listener to the conflicting elements of Prokofiev’s always ‘difficult’, prickly and volatile nature… Hear him (Matti Raekallio) in the Fourth Sonata’s central Andante assai, music where only a small, barely visible flower grows, or in his blistering attack on the finales of the Seventh and Eighth Sonatas, and you will be more than suitably awed and chilled’.
-Bryce Morrison, Gramophone Magazine, October 2011

 

8.572654 DICKINSON Piano Music
‘…his blues-to-boogie revamping of Satie’s Gnossiennes never fail to delight and engage the ear.  The same can be said for his slow and spacious Four Piano Blues…An enjoyable release, highly recommended.’
-Jed Distler, Gramophone, February 2012

‘Best of all are Blue Rose and Bach in Blue, a hauntingly lovely treatment of Bach’s C major Prelude No.1 from The Well-Tempered Clavier.  As you would expect, the composer’s playing is immaculate – and he also provides an illuminating booklet; altogether an impressive achievement’.
-Jeremy Nicholas, Classic FM Magazine, October 2011

 

8.660302 ROSSINI La cambiale di matrimonio
‘This newest taping dates from the same year (2006) as the Pesaro account but is superior in almost every respect’
- Richard Osborne, Gramophone Magazine, September 2011
