Description

Seriously, there can be few experiences more absorbing than playing the six-part consorts of William Lawes. Resembling a cosmic leviathan in which individuals pursue their naked self-interests whilst harnessed to the iron will of the composer, this is music which challenges the boundaries of contrapuntal comprehension, providing endless fascination at each exposure to its craggy lines and sinewy textures. (…) from: liner notes by Laurence Dreyfus

Press reviews

www. medieval

(…) and here we have an interpretation & production with no drawbacks.

Classics Today

(…) fascinating stuff, emotionally gripping, and played to a passionate fare-thee-well by Phantasm (…)

Brabants Dagblad

(…) deze vijf consorts bevatten een enerrie die een mens niet voor mogelijk houdt: klankerupties, jubelende op improvidsaties lijkende deetjes, meditative momenten, het volgt elkaar in een eindeloze stroom op en ook nog eens fantastisch gespeeld.

Fanfare

(…) wonderfully expressive playing (…) (…) this recording demand a place in the collection of all who would experience some of the greatest chamber music of the 17th centruy, the work of a composer, who, to qutoe Dreyfuss once more, is a dangerous narcotic.

Luister

(…) Nergens saai of eenvormig, Dromerige, fijnzinnige stukken, licht en verend gespeeld zoals de Aire in F, waarin de strijkinstrumenten klinken alsof ze door met fluweel bespannen strijkstokken worden aangestreken (…) (…) Wat een verrassende en eigeninnige componist was William Lawas, sommige composities klinken alsof ze gisteren gecomponeerd zijn..

Financieel Dagblad

(…) De zwarte pracht van de reformatie dringt aan alle kanten door.

The Independent

Few groupes have been as adept a Phantasm at conveying the full marvel of his music with its intertwining lines and astonishing leaps of imagination. This latest disc marks the 400th anniversary of the birth of one of this countrys greatest musical minds.

International Record Review

(…) inexhaustable adours of the performance (…)

Early Music

(…) I give Phantasm the laurel for an infectious rendering of this extraordinarily profound and bewitching music.

International Record Review

(…) attractive, energetic music, beautifully performed (…) (…) Phantasm has made this a fitting memorial for a memorable man: it would be difficult to find better comsort playing. (…)

Gramohone

(..) Phantasm is truly in a class of its own.
