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 set is, in one word, majestic, which is a fitting end to the Cycle.’ – ClassicsToday.com
‘Gun-Brit Barkmin’s Brünnhilde is once again admirable in her ability to maintain quality tone throughout, in an approach that combines lyricism with dramatic focus.’ – BBC Music Magazine
‘The new Ring stands as a testament to the determination and focus that has utterly transformed the HK Phil into certainly the best orchestra in Asia and one that can hold its own on any international platform.’ – Opera Now
‘There is a lot of gorgeous playing and singing in this new recording.’ – Pizzicato
‘A real value is this one. And I am very happy to have the performances. They are to me a new benchmark. This version will doubtless take over in my Christmas listening cycle going forward.’ – Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review
‘The many miniatures are exquisite, including a quirky Bukoliki and two world premiere recordings; Virginia Rossetti joins Koukl’s collection now leads the field, ahead of Corinna Simon’s ‘complete’ disc.’ – International Piano
‘In the Violin Concerto No. 2 Frank Peter Zimmermann, for whom the work was written, is a serene soloist, rock solid throughout and cool as the proverbial cucumber through every virtuoso challenge.’ – BBC Music Magazine
