BBC Record Review, Andrew MacGregor
Suk: Piano Music
Studio Master: CDA68198  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘[Jonathan Plowright] brings similar qualities of sometimes rugged power and Romantic weight as well as plenty of charm to Suk's attractive miniatures. If you only know the orchestral tone poems, treat yourself to Suk the pianist’ (BBC Record Review)

Machaut: Fortune's Child
Studio Master: CDA68195  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘It goes without saying that the performances of the Orlando Consort here easily maintain the high performance standards of the previous instalments … over the last three or four years I feel blessed to have become acquainted with these superb Hyperion recordings of Machaut—it has been well worth the effort’ (MusicWeb International)» More

Stephen Hough's Dream Album
Studio Master: CDA68176  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘Unfailingly adroit and elegant, modulating from floridity to finer feelings and back again. Also, there’s nuance and a sure sense of style … something to tickle every taste-bud; bon appétit!’ (MusicWeb International)» More

Suk: Piano Music
Studio Master: CDA68198  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘The early works on this new CD channel something of the same life-affirming Czech spirit that was also characteristic of Dvorák, though they also reveal considerable individuality in both melodic writing and structure … the concluding five Moods [are] impressive pieces that are a delight to listen to yet place considerable demands on the performer’ (New Classics)» More

A Rose Magnificat
Studio Master: SIGCD536  Download only  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘The vogue for pairing Renaissance and contemporary choral works is well established but this is a programme that draws the dialogue between the two repertories into fresh animation … performances are pristine: carefully balanced and always cleanly tuned, and a more muscular, characterful top line offers a welcome contrast to some of the ensemble’s English rivals’ (Gramophone)

Beethoven: Piano Sonatas Opp 27/1, 31/2, 79 & 109
Studio Master: CDA68199  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘As we would expect from Angela Hewitt, there's much thoughtful and deeply-felt playing here. Hewitt is particularly successful in Beethoven's slow movements: the lyrically sustained Adagio of the Tempest Sonata Op 31 No 2, the gently lilting Andante of the little G major Op 79, and the profound serenity of the concluding variations in the Sonata Op 109’ (BBC Music Magazine)

Charpentier: Leçons de ténèbres, Litanies & Magnificat
Studio Master: CDA68171  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘A new disc of delights from the sprawling oeuvre of Charpentier is always welcome, especially when it comes from an ensemble as reliable and adaptable as Arcangelo. A quick glance at the list of singers and instrumentalists gathered by Jonathan Cohen for these recordings is assurance enough that they won’t lack for expertise, musicality or style’ (Gramophone)

Charpentier: Leçons de ténèbres, Litanies & Magnificat
Studio Master: CDA68171  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘Charpentier’s Leçons de ténèbres are among the glories of French Baroque music … these performances by Arcangelo of the Litanies and Magnificat are unfailingly expert … the baritone Stéphane Degout and the tenor Samuel Boden strike a fine balance between the meditative aspects and the near-operatic drama of the words from the Lamentations of Jeremiah’ (BBC Music Magazine)» More

Dohnányi: String Quartet, Serenade & Sextet
Studio Master: CDA68215  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘Few record companies seem to be holding such a candle for Dohnányi’s chamber music as Hyperion … The Nash Ensemble triumphantly surmounts all the technical challenges while projecting absolute enjoyment of and devotion to the music’ (BBC Music Magazine)» More

Dohnányi: String Quartet, Serenade & Sextet
Studio Master: CDA68215  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘It’s a gloriously overripe, at times rapturous interpretation [of the Sextet], and I’m smitten by it. If you’ve never taken to Dohnányi’s music before, these performances should win you over. If you’re already a convert, you’ll want this’ (Gramophone)

Mozart in London
Studio Master: SIGCD534  Download only  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘Excellent performances of some of the fledgling Mozart’s London pieces interspersed among an abundance of rarely investigated repertory … fingers crossed that The Mozartists will produce several more revelatory commemorations over the coming years until 2041’ (Gramophone)
1 July 2018

Stephen Hough's Dream Album
Studio Master: CDA68176  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘It's hard not to be smitten by the first-class musicianship, delicacy and fancy twinkling and winking through the Minkus transcriptions, or the genuine feeling bubbling up in Dvořák's Humoresque, Elgar's Salut d'amour, or Richard Tauber's sentimental hit number Das alte Lied … a sweet album, this, superbly played and recorded’ (BBC Music Magazine)
