January 2013

8.570487 PAGANINI Violin Concerto
“The disc stands out for its crisply defined recordings and for the exceptional playing of Ivan Pochekin, whose pure tone, wise expressive range and precise articulation and tuning bring Paganini’s ideas vividly to life…I’m sure even Paganini himself would be impressed.”
-Duncan Druce, Gramophone March 2013

“[This music] can thrill with a real sense of drive, commitment and technical control.”
-Martin Cotton, BBC Music Magazine March 2013


8.572698 DVORAK Symphony No. 6
“This is a very clever coupling of works… the Seattle Symphony strings distinguish themselves and Schwarz has a clear sympathy with this attractive music.”
-George Pratt, BBC Music Magazine February 2013

“Utterly magical… an effective showcase for the Seattle strings who distinguish themselves with a degree of lustre and expressive sweetness that matches the best rival American orchestras. If you were to buy this CD just for the Idyll (it plays for a few seconds under half an hour) you would be in for a real bargain, even without the Dvorak. Enough said.”
-Rob Cowan, Gramophone February 2013


8.573070 WHITBOURN Annelies
“James Whitbourn does achieve many striking moments….[the music] is hauntingly effective… the performance is well prepared and palpably committed, as befits a premiere recording.”
-Terry Blain, BBC Music Magazine February 2013

“The greatest accomplishment here is that James Whitbourn has created some music of great beauty, without trespassing into the world of the cloying. Not only does that release one to listen to the work’s oases of soaring melody… with impunity but leaves the integrity of such an important piece of literature, and history, intact.”
-Caroline Gill, Gramophone February 2013
