Album of the Week

“…Cooper’s technical command and musical insights are up there with those of her mentor, Alfred Brendel, or Stephen Kovacevich, and her thoughtful, melancholy delivery of the famous, enigmatic Für Elise is a delectable encore.”

“Brüggen's… interpretation is on an impressive scale, the recording excellently balanced, bass-lines deep and clear.”

Gramophone magazine – August 2009

“…in this live period-instrument interpretation tempos are finely judged and the many expressive effects in Haydn's depiction of the last words of Jesus are recorded in the gospels are powerfully underlined.”  ****

Organists’ Review – September 2012

“… the nature of the Paschal season has rarely seemed so evocative in this work as in Frans Bruggen's profoundly rooted and reflective reading. Even the opening instrumental music inspires a gradual and unpresumptuous curtain-raising, the Sinfonia more one of contained ritual than demonstrative rejouissance …”

Gramophone magazine – July 2012

“Steering clear of more obvious repertory choices, this collection mixes big-boned and intimate Schumann. .. Bavouzet identifies with the music intensely … Bavouzet's Faschingsschwank aus Wien is robust …  With so much adrenalin and changing emotional theatre, so many fingers in swirling, dazzling races to the finish, the two late cycles, lyrically pointed, benefit from tender, discerningly judged balancing… The final bar of the last of the rarely-heard Gesänge der Frühe (Songs of Dawn) is one of elevated artistry …” ****

“The Marian Consort’s singing is never less than polished and beautifully crafted … the opening account of Gabriel Jackson’s declamatory Stabat Mater was enough to make this Renaissance-attuned reviewer spill his coffee”

Katherine Cooper – PrestoClassical – July 2008
“Carefully paced and shaped by the group’s director Rory McCleery, [Gabriel Jackson’s Stabat Mater] feels like a modern classic in the making, sensitive and endlessly responsive to the text. This major new work from Jackson is an unsettlingly powerful one. ”
