"... vibrant, inventive, approachable music ..."
Rebecca Tavener - Classical Music magazine - December 2018
"Of particular interest among these works is Schumann's version of Bach's cantata Herr, gehe nicht ins Gericht and it is a revelation... lyrically flowing lines that are so different from the usual interpretation of Bach, but very satisfying, with skilful singing and phrasing from soloists and choir bringing unexpected warmth to the performance. The Ballade is a dramatic, magical tale of forbidden love, murder and death, a sort of 'choral lied' with orchestration full of romantic ingenuity..."*****

“…Beata Halska and Claudio Chaiquin are both…very good… Good sound.”

“…Beata Halska and Claudio Chaiquin are both…very good… Good sound.”

Joseph Magil – American Record Guide – November 2015

“… [Halska’s] tone’s pliability and adaptability in the middle registers…its silvery brightness in the upper registers, and its richness in the lower ones, transmitted by clear recorded sound. She makes the movement at its end sound serenely irenic… Halska’s and Chaiquin’s performances should be of interest, but more general collectors should find them worth hearing as well. Recommended.”
