BBC Music Magazine: ‘Chamber Choice’ for RACHEL PODGER

Great news! This month’s BBC Music Magazine “Chamber Choice” goes to Grandissima Gravita by Rachel Podger & Brecon Baroque!

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.”

Congratulations on the BBC Chamber Choice, 5 ***** for Performance and 5 ***** for Recording, Rachel Podger, Alison McGillivray, Daniele Caminiti, Marcin Świątkiewicz, Jared Sacks and Jonathan Freeman-Attwood!!

Last week’s recording in Poland

Last week I traveled to Katowice in Poland to record J.S. Bach Concertos with the wonderful harpsichord player Marcin Swiatkiewicz. Marcin plays with Brecon Baroque so you can already hear him in many productions with Rachel Podger. What makes this recording extra special is that he uses three different harpsichords for the three Bach Concertos. The accompaniment is stripped down to string quartet which creates a more intimate sound to these pieces. 

– Jared Sacks, founder and recording engineer of Channel Classics Records

> This recording will be released in the spring of 2018.
