Tippett: Symphonies Nos 1 & 2
Studio Master: CDA68203  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘In these Tippett symphonies [Brabbins] shows a firm grasp of the overall structure, clear articulation of the details and a good sense of balance across the orchestral forces … this is an auspicious start to the new cycle’ (MusicWeb International)» More

BBC Record Review, Andrew MacGregor
English Motets
Studio Master: CDA68256  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘This selection of English motets proves to be a fine showcase for their clear voices, immaculate intonation and a certain instinct for the drama and intensity of the repertoire, as they explore the extraordinary journey that composition took around the English Reformation’ (BBC Record Review)

The Neue Zürcher Zeitung, Switzerland, Eleonore Büning
Mozart: Violin Sonatas K302, 380 & 526
Studio Master: CDA68175  2CDs for the price of 1 NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

„Gleichberechtigt, vom diskursiven Geist der Kammermusik beseelt und gleichwohl betörend brillant musiziert das Duo Alina Ibragimova und Cédric Tiberghien“ (The Neue Zürcher Zeitung, Switzerland)» More

Falla: Fantasia Baetica & other piano music
Studio Master: CDA68177  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘My store of superlatives is all but exhausted … this album is a must-buy for Falla fans and newbies alike … this one will surely be on my shortlist for 2018. Distinguished pianism, a fine venue and a first-rate recording, in short, a perfect storm’ (MusicWeb International)» More

Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring & other works for two pianos four hands
Studio Master: CDA68189  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘This issue of [Stravinsky's] two-piano works played by a pair of contemporary master pianists is a collaboration to be savoured, a real meeting of minds … a truly wonderful disc. Even by Hyperion’s exacting standards, I imagine it will be a tough ask for them to match this stupendous release in what remains of 2018’ (MusicWeb International)» More

Brahms: The Complete Songs, Vol. 7 - Benjamin Appl
Studio Master: CDJ33127  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘What’s remarkable is Appl’s sheer fluency as a Lieder singer, his ease with the idiom and his naturalness of manner—words and line sit together just as they should … Johnson’s notes offer the usual wealth of wisdom and wit, while Hyperion’s sound is immaculate—especially when heard as a Studio Master download’ (Gramophone)

Couperin: Dances from the Bauyn Manuscript
Studio Master: CDA68224  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘Very few pianists of Kolesnikov’s generation share his abundance of intelligence, sensitivity, imagination and sheer instrumental mastery’ (Gramophone)
1 April 2018

English Motets
Studio Master: CDA68256  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘The vocal quality is very fine, not to say superb, and when the music calls for an extrovert approach (as do Byrd’s Vigilate or, very differently, Dunstable’s four-voice Veni Sancte Spiritus) the singers respond with an athleticism and a feel for pacing that isn’t perhaps so common. The close miking does justice to the contrapuntal details, maintaining clarity in all but the densest writing’ (Gramophone)

Mozart: Violin Sonatas K302, 380 & 526
Studio Master: CDA68175  2CDs for the price of 1 NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘If ever a Mozart recording were self-recommending, this is it. The first four volumes of the French-Russian duo’s complete sonata cycle came close to my Mozartian ideal. This final instalment, again juxtaposing early, middle and late works, fulfils every expectation … 'a set that will surely become the modern reference recording' wrote David Threasher after Vol 4, a claim I would enthusiastically endorse after this superlative final volume’ (Gramophone)

Debussy: Piano Music
Studio Master: CDA68161  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘This album has everything I could wish for in performances of Debussy's piano music: a wide tonal palette, clear outline of structure, sensitive touch, good pedalling, flair, clarity and rhythmic control’ (Pianist)» More

Debussy: Piano Music
Studio Master: CDA68139  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘Hough himself is an exhibited painter, and his approach to Images resembles that of a visual academic, concerned to explore intellectual nuances’ (Pianist)» More

Duruflé, Vierne & Briggs: Midnight at St Etienne du Mont
Studio Master: SIGCD470  Download only  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

‘Nolan, whose Widor recordings have shown him to have an intelligent and instinctive feel for the French Romantic repertory, enhances that reputation here with playing that is perceptive, compelling and intensely musical … this disc makes a fitting tribute to an organist and composer who holds a special place in many hearts on either side of the English Channel’ (Gramophone)
