8.572893 RUSSIAN SONGS AND ARIAS (Dinara Alieva)
“Basing my knowledge of Alieva’s singing solely on this recital, I find her voice genuinely interesting, on everyt rack. She and the well-supporting New Russian Symphony Orchestra under Dmitry Yablonsky are clearly recorded.”
-John T Hughes, International Record Review June 2013


8.559737 ELLINGTON Black, Brown and Beige
“The Buffalo forces deliver his portrait of Harlem with bounce and brio…Similarly, his magnum opus Black, Brown and Beige shines in its orchestral setting; even without such legendary solo voices as altoist Johnny Hodges.”
-Geoffrey Smith, BBC Music Magazine

“The superb recording accommodates everything from solo harp to big band wall of sound guaranteed to poleaxe the neighbours.”
-IRR April 2013


8.660323-25 HASSE Didone Abbandonata
“All [the soloists] impress… the two sopranos are accomplished… Both countertenors earn high marks… the silken quality of Barna-Sabadus’s voice helps him to ripple through long-breathed roulades… the Munich Hofkapelle [offer] music making that is a aural pleasure, painting Hasse’s colourful score with winning combinations of sound.”
- IRR May 2013


8.572873 WEINBERG Symphony No. 8

 “It was a masterstroke on the part of Naxos to use Polish forces. Antoni Wit and the WP C and O already have a wonderful track record in releases of large scale choral works, and deliver a performance of searing intensity.”
-Erik Levi, BBC Music Magazine May 2013


8.572830 ONSLOW Cello Sonatas Nos 1-3
“These are strongly committed and highly expressive performances.”
-Erik Levi, BBC Music Magazine May 2013



8.572994 BOTTESINI Messa Da Requiem
“The orchestral sound is well caught, and Bottesini has written some stirring music…The soprano Marta Matheu has a shine in her voice, enabling her to climb above the orchestra.”
-John T Hughes, International Record Review June 2013

“The work’s great gem, the ‘Quid sum miser’ [is] beautifully sung by the tenor Agustin Prunell-Friend. It’s worth buying the disc just to enjoy this aria…the other soloists give equally operatic and distinguished performances. The JCOS are also on splendid form…An enjoyable piece, well worth exploring.”
-Malcolm Riley, Gramophone June 2013


8.573052 GOEHR Pastorals
“This programme… is as welcome a birthday tribute as one could wish for…[The live performances] are admirably committed and detailed, and very well captured.”
-Fabrice Fitch, Gramophone March 2013


8.572662 MENDELSSOHN Violin Concertos
“The concertos showcase Yang’s presence of sound and lyrical grace on a grand scale.”
-Ken Smith, Gramophone March 2013

“In Tianwa Yang we find an artist of exceptional technique and musicianship. Above all, her tone, particularly at the extremes, on the E and G strings, is heart-meltingly beautiful….impeccable technique throughout.”
-Roger Nichols, BBC Music Magazine March 2013
