"...If anyone doubts that hard-hitting contemporary music can be played with emotion and passion, the sheer electricity and commitment that courses through Bürgermusik Luzern's account of Paul McGhee's King Kong on Rue Igor Stravinsky, under an inspired Michael Bach, is riveting, whilst the beguiling textures of Simon Dobson's Glass, Bert Appermont's A Brussels Requiem and Philip Sparke's Music of the Spheres amply demonstrate the diversity and abundant quality of the own-choice 'European' performances ..."  *

Classical Album of the Week

“…It’s gratifying to find it [Mass in D] getting the kind of recording it deserves from forces who can do justice to its ambition… The Wreckers, her best-known opera, makes for an excellent prelude… the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus are on excellent, sumptuous form, and this recording should win the mass many new fans.”  ****
