Classical Album of the Week

Erica Jeal – The Guardian – 21 September 2018

“Hannigan’s recital focuses on a repertoire that reflects the decaying of certainties as the First World War loomed… Hannigan and de Leeuw command this mysterious, disturbingly shaded and sensual music with aptly teasing restraint.”

Stephen Pettitt - The Sunday Times (Culture magazine) – 16 September 2018

“Page’s Classical Opera project goes from strength to strength. The playing in this early Singspiel fizzes with life, the singing is splendid and the work, childlike yet expert, charms. But what makes the disc exceptional is the rarely heard Grabmusik, a passionate dialogue about Christ’s death between an anguished soul and a tender angel … admirably sung by Anna Lucia Richter and Jacques Imbrailo.”

“… [Ngai] sails through the solo passages with elan and adds a beautiful cadenza at the end of the opening Presto. As the work proceeds through its suite movements, everyone gets in on the act — flutes, horns, oboes — and they all revel in the folk rhythms and the sinuous, chromatic touches here and there… Enjoy this recording as soon as you can.

“Orazio Benevolo was an important composer of the counter-reformation. His liturgical choir works make a great impression in the performances by Le Concert Spirituel and Hervé Niquet. The program includes compositions of Benevolo’s predecessors.” ****

Uwe Krusch - Pizzicato.lu – 1 September 2018

“From an intimate annual musical event in Montana we hear a recording of primarily recent pieces for chamber setting. All the artists, the renowned ones as well as the lesser known, perform these works with strong commitment.” *****

Uwe Krusch - Pizzicato.lu – 6 September 2018

“This is a very fine achievement of Le Sage, Meyer and Bohorquez. In their naturally flowing, polished performances there is plenty of vitality and an infectious mood. The recorded sound is clear, with a good balance and perspective.” ****
