BARTOK, B.: Violin Concertos Nos. 1 and 2 (Steinbacher, Swiss Romande Orchestra, M. Janowski)

"... I can't think of a version of the Second Concerto, past or present, where structure and content are more thoughtfully balanced or where significant points in the score are more lovingly underlined."

KORNGOLD, E.W.: Symphony in F sharp major / Much Ado about Nothing Suite (Strasbourg Philharmonic, M. Albrecht)

"This is, hands down, the best-engineered performance of Korngold's masterful symphony yet released, and that means a lot. " 

David Hurwitz
10/10 review

MENDELSSOHN, F.: Piano Concertos Nos. 1 and 2 / Rondo brilliant (Helmchen, Royal Flemish Philharmonic, Herreweghe)

"...the present disc joins a relatively small group of recordings devoted to the composer's piano-and-orchestra works, and a welcome addition it is."

John Puccio

PTC5186361
BRAHMS, J.: Deutsches Requiem (Ein) (Tilling, Roth, Berlin Radio Choir and Symphony Orchestra, M. Janowski)

"Superb soloists, splendid orchestra and chorus mark this issue that stands up well to the fine recordings already available—over 90 of them!" 

Robert Benson

PTC5186371
BRUCKNER, A.: Symphony No. 8 (1890 Version) (Swiss Romande Orchestra, M. Janowski)

"Exemplary ensemble balances make every strand in the texture audible, while the engineering couldn't be more natural. This is without question one of the great performances."

David Hurwitz

PTC5186304
BEETHOVEN, L. van: Piano Sonatas Nos. 9, 10, 19, 20, 24 and 25 (Kodama)

"Throughout, what really comes across is (Kodama's) affection for the music, her wish to give it time so that we may enjoy its shape, harmonies and details."

Colin Anderson
International Record Review
