“... Little simply responds to the music with an open-eyed freshness and fantasy that’s all the more remarkable when you consider how often she must have played these works. She is lively and conversational, and conveys a vivid sense of character to her colleagues... Little’s virtuosity comes spectacularly to the fore in Roxanna Panufnik’s Four World Seasons ... Panufnik has written a really effective response to Vivaldi, ideally tailored to Little’s artistry...”

"... That the symphony conveys the eloquence that it does is in no small part down to the conviction of Donald Runnicles, who draws a committed response from the BBC Scottish Symphony. Vadim Repin is also admirable in the solo part of the concerto, which could well find itself a place in the modern repertoire. Immediate sound and insightful notes by the composer enhance a significant release."

“... These are bright-eyed, upfront performances, alert to Bennett’s kaleidoscopic sense of instrumental colour, and delivered with energy and an enjoyable hint of swing... This is a regular Thanksgiving feast of mid-century Americana, it should give a lot of pleasure.”

Recording of the Month

“Bavouzet’s chronological journey through the Beethoven sonatas has not been surpassed in the last 30 years. Yes, it’s that good.”

"Christopher Rouse reinforces his pre-eminence among living  American symphonists ... Excellent performances by the NYPO, in the sure highlight of their association with Dacapo."

Critics' Choice 2016
"... Phantasm's performances of Dowland's complete Lachrimae or Seaven Teares collection delight in some of the best tunes of the 1600s, but also dig deep into the complex psyche of its melancholy composer, revealing Dowland's richness, changeability and exquisite musical subtlety."

Critics' Choice 2016
"... Christian Tetzlaff and Lars Vogt convey a sense of wide-eyed discovery, ardent conviction and warm affection in Brahms's violin sonatas that's not only immensely satisfying but unexpectedly moving as well."
