This month brings you another bumper crop of great reviews from the leading music magazines, quality dailies and online review sites. There’s no doubt about it: Naxos releases and distributes some of the best music and audiovisual albums!
‘This performance would be hard indeed to equal, let alone beat.’ – Musical Opinion
‘With the Piano Concertos Nos 4 & 5 Romain Descharmes and Marc Soustrot complete a highly successful series with lively and genuinely French piano playing as well as a finely shaped and richly detailed orchestral accompaniment.’ – Pizzicato
‘Director Tatjana Gürbaca and designer Klaus Grünberg have transformed Massenet’s masterpiece into a compelling drama that glues you to the edge of your seat from start to finish.’ – BBC Music Magazine
‘Mostly calm, melancholic if not sad pieces by Erik Satie, with sometimes, a hint of humour or irony. Giacomo Scinardo’s sensitive and affectionate playing is inventive enough to prevent any possible monotony.’ – Pizzicato
‘I love the energy of Beethoven’s Allegro con brio and the badinage in the finale, the quick-witted, feather-light strings alternating with brutal tutti interjections—Beecham at his most compelling.’ – Gramophone
‘Tetzlaff produces playing that’s warmly lyrical and dazzlingly virtuosic, by turns. With the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra under Hannu Lintu on top form, this is an easy recommendation.’ – BBC Music Magazine
