“… The sound is of CPO’s usual high standard, especially the burnished, mahogany heft of the sextet. Krug gives lots of melodies to the violas, and both violists have rich, full tone and accurate tuning. Let’s hope for a lot more Krug from CPO – what a discovery!”

“… The young players in Percussion UVU … are superb musicians – as good as their older and more experienced colleagues. And the program they offer … is a fine introduction to Harrison’s work in all its color and invention, as well as in its unabashed and trailblazing love for all the world’s musical traditions.”

“… these pieces have plenty of style and musicality … there’s no mistaking that these musicians are fully committed to what they’re playing. This project was clearly undertaken with great care, and the recording radiates their pleasure. I would gladly return to Cresswell and the performers …”

“… Segev is a mistress of rich, warm tone and has fingers of accuracy and brilliance… a fine player and musician. She is joined by a pianist of equal technical facility, and the two of them are satisfyingly sensitive to each other’s phrasing desires…”

William J Gatens – American Record Guide – November/December 2018

“… The performances here are excellent and the recorded sound clear and warm with every detail audible. The singers and players clearly know what it takes to project a phrase convincingly, and they have technique to burn. They make it sound almost effortless. These are eloquently expressive readings without anachronistic romanticizing. Readers who know Buxtehude chiefly from his organ works will be dazzles with this music. People who already have an extensive Buxtehude collection should add this recording to it, even if it duplicates repertory from older recordings.”

Bruno Repp – American Record Guide – November/December 2018

“… On fortepiano, Maggie Cole runs away with this set, playing with remarkable dexterity and grace,,, Trio 2 is practically a master class in getting as much personality as possible out of a fortepiano… II is glorious, and IV is a dance for three instruments. The group is at its best in the C-minor Trio, often considered the strongest of the three. The first movement is furious, II is a hymn, and IV feels like Beethoven is emerging from his chrysalis …”

“… Here we have some of the finest modern instrument players lavishing their talent on Beethoven’s early works … Seo’s flute playing is relaxed and entirely free to express what the music needs … His [Kodama] playing just as free – is presented with a warm sound and low notes of delightful resonance. The piano has a bright sound, and fast notes or repeated chords yield a crystalline effect. At the keyboard, Makoto Ueno has nowhere to hide – not that he needs to!..”

“…The entire ensemble (including the first-rate Santa Fe Opera Chorus) is excellent. Edward Parks uses his bright baratone to evoke Job’s mercurial personality… Conductor Michael Christie propels the complex rhythms with an ease that well suits the artless ingenuity of Bates’s writing.”

“… Kaya plays with a modern sensibility. He is deeply expressive, but without distortion and indulgence. This has always been a mark of his playing, and here he serves Barrios’s music with perfection. And his technique even more accomplished than Barrios’s own. This is a treasure.”

“… this is a fine addition to Naxos’s coverage of Balada’s music. The recording is in good sound and covers much material heretofore unrecorded. The playing is mostly sensitive to the demands of this highly imaginative composer.”

“…Performances are highly accomplished. Wallin is accurate in pitch, even in his highest range, which his part constantly visits. Andrew Manze and the Helsingborg Orchestra add good support. CPO’s sound is lifelike.”
