Reviews

BBC Music Magazine [Chamber Choice, Dec 2017]

"Rachel Podger, inevitably, is the star, but ultimately the disc's compulsive spell is down to the triumph of ensemble chemistry. Even the humblest of cello lines is elevated beyond functionality into something expressive and integral to the overall effect. Bewitching." 5 ***** for Performance 5 ***** for Recording

BBC Radio 3 - CD Review

The expressive freedom they find together is a real joy. (...) The quality of conversation between the four of them is riveting, full of incident and dynamic interplay.

Opus Klassiek

(...) Dit zijn uitvoeringen die van begin tot eind een diepe indruk maken. (...)de perfecte articulatie, het kleurrijke lijnenspel, de pregnante ritmiek, de bereidheid ook om het scherp van de snede op te zoeken. En dan is er niet in de laatste plaats Jared Sacks die in het Londense St Jude's-on-the-Hill er weer een opnamtechnisch juweel van heeft gemaakt.

iClassical

Another superb recording from the award-winning Rachel Podger and Brecon Baroque.
