Image Lachrimae or Seven Tears
This wonderful album has won two major Early Music awards: the 2017 Gramophone Award and the 2017 Diapason d’or de l’annee. It was also named a BBC Radio 3 Building A Library ‘First Choice’. John Dowland’s gifts as an exceptional melodist are evident throughout Lachrimae or Seven Tears, an artistic achievement which has cast a remarkable spell on early music. Summing up the Renaissance preoccupation with melancholy, this extraordinary collection of dance music for viols and lute includes Dowland’s ‘signature’ piece, Semper Dowland semper Dolens. Dowland reveals a personal world of sublime sadness, grief, anger and melancholy mollified by moments of joy and gladness. A skilled lutenist, Dowland’s intricately-worked parts demand perfect synchronicity between Phantasm and Elizabeth Kenny, who rise to the technical and tempi challenges of marrying their instruments. Although freed from lyric constraints poetic images linger prompting Phantasm’s Laurence Dreyfus to describe this as “the most sensuously tuneful hour of music ever written”.

Ensemble Marsyas’ recording of Johann Fasch’s finest chamber music demonstrates why the man and his music were so appreciated in his own lifetime. Founding member Peter Whelan and “the queen of the recorder” (BBC Radio 3) Pamela Thorby are the soloists challenged with meeting the virtuoso demands of this engaging music. The four-movement Quartet in B flat major for recorder, oboe, violin and continuo is among one of Fasch’s most popular works; full of catchy tunes and contrapuntal ingenuity in equal measure, virtuosity is demanded from all concerned. The Concerto in F major for recorder and strings was only recently attributed to Fasch. It is full of characteristic Fasch-isms and of the same dramatic quasi-recitative style as his Bassoon Concerto. Upon release Fasch: Quartets and Concertos was named a Chamber Choice by BBC Music Magazine and awarded the maximum five stars for both Performance and Recording.

The hand-picked selection includes Heiland Harry, Ca’ the Yowes, Green Grow the Rashes, This Love Will Carry, Till Tomorrow and of course, his enduringly popular love song to Scotland, Caledonia. Since he wrote Caledonia in 1977, with its lyrics, ‘You’re calling me, and now I’m going home’, it has become the unofficial Scots national anthem, topped the Scottish charts and been covered by Paolo Nutini, Amy Macdonald and Ronan Keating.

Dunedin Consort presents the premiere recording of Mozart scholar David Black’s new 2013 edition of Süssmayr’s completion of Mozart’s Requiem. This GRAMMY®-nominated recording provides the opportunity to re-imagine what this work may have sounded like at its very first performance. Originally released in 2014, this recording is the first not only to use this new edition, but also to present the work using forces close in style and scale to those at the first performances. One striking element is the fact that the soloists – Joanne Lunn (soprano), Rowan Hellier (alto), Thomas Hobbs (tenor) and Matthew Brook (bass) – are also the leaders of the choir, thus giving a greater consistency to the relationship between the solo numbers and the choruses. Upon naming the recording the winner of the 2014 ‘Choral’ Award, Gramophone described the recording as ‘one of the finest Mozart Requiems of recent years’.

The recording was nominated for both a ICMA and Gramophone Award and was #2 on The Herald’s ‘Best Classical Albums of 2013’ list. Bach’s Six Brandenburg Concertos are essential and enduringly popular works in the Baroque orchestral repertory, full of interesting instrumentation choices and dancing melodies. With characteristic aplomb, the Dunedin Consort brings to life the very best of the Baroque period. A powerfully intelligent interpretation, this period performance of Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos is fulfilling on every level. Among Dunedin Consort’s talented instrumentalists are Pamela Thorby (recorder), Cecilia Bernardini (violin), Jonathan Manson (cello) and John Butt (harpsichord).

Profeti della Quinta makes its Linn debut with a unique programme of Italian madrigals, instrumental pieces and Hebrew prayers by Salomone Rossi (c. 1570–c. 1630). The programme encompasses Rossi’s many-faceted talents both as a court composer in the service of the Gonzaga family and as a unique innovator of devotional music for the synagogue. The award-winning a cappella ensemble, comprising five core male singers, is joined for this recording by Katya Polin and Eva Saladin (violin) and Ori Harmelin and Ryosuke Sakamoto (theorbo). The native Hebrew speaking singers specialize in the music of the Italian Baroque and have an immediate connection to Rossi as a Jewish Italian composer. In naming Profeti della Quinta winners of the 2011 York Early Music Young Artists Competition, producer and judge Philip Hobbs commented: ’Profeti della Quinta’s stunning authentic performance practice and quality of execution was truly magnificent.’

Robin Ticciati cemented his reputation as an outstanding Berliozian with this 2013 recording, Berlioz: Les nuits d’été, which includes excerpts from Roméo & Juliette and La mort de Cléopâtre. Ticciati delivers fresh insights and vivid colours into this luminous work showing similar flair to that of his teachers Sir Simon Rattle and the great Berliozian Sir Colin Davis. The recording features Kathleen Ferrier prize-winning mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill, who has sung at the Metropolitan Opera, New York and won acclaim as Cléopâtre, a role she reprises here: ‘Cargill’s Cléopâtre gives even Dame Janet a run for her money...a real revelation’ (Limelight Magazine). The works of Berlioz have featured prominently in Ticciati’s programmes with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra since he was appointed Principal Conductor in 2009 earning critical acclaim. This recording was nominated for a 2014 ICMA Award and topped Kate Molleson’s ‘2013 Classical Top 10’ list in The Herald.

This is the premiere recording of J.S. Bach’s John Passion, heard for the first time within its original liturgical context. Director John Butt succeeds in giving listeners a refreshing outlook on one of the best-known pieces of the choral repertoire. The recording also features works by Jacob Händl Gallus, J. Crüger and J.H. Schein from an original Leipzig hymn book performed by a congregational choir and the University of Glasgow Chapel Choir. John Butt takes centre stage to perform organ chorale preludes by Bach and Schütz on the Collins organ at Edinburgh’s Greyfriar’s Kirk. The impressive cast includes Nicholas Mulroy (Evangelista), Matthew Brook (Jesus), Robert Davies, Joanne Lunn and Clare Wilkinson. The recording was named a Gramophone Award Finalist, ‘Recording of the Month’ by three separate publications and topped the UK Specialist Chart upon its release in 2013. Dunedin Consort’s recreation of this recording at the 2017 BBC Proms was a highlight of the summer, earning critical acclaim for the ‘revelatory’ and ‘vital’ performance.

Released to mark the 300th anniversary of the death of the composer, the ensemble’s greatly anticipated series explored the six opera of the eminent Italian’s chamber music: the concerti grossi, violin sonatas, chamber sonatas and church sonatas. Each of Corelli’s church sonatas is a small gem; these short sonatas are full of innovation, beauty and warmth. They demonstrate a superior level of craftsmanship: they are of the highest quality, exquisitely refined and an example of perfection in music. Corelli’s contribution to the history of violin performance was immense and these trio sonatas were instrumental in raising the musical bar to new heights. All six of his published collections of instrumental music demonstrate his exceptional skill as a violinist and composer, but it was in his church sonatas which became the pillars of this musical format.

Popular since their publication, Corelli’s two sets of chamber sonatas are a pinnacle of Baroque Italian instrumental music. They demonstrate a superior level of craftsmanship; they are of the highest quality, exquisitely refined and a good example of perfection in music. Corelli’s contribution to the history of violin performance was immense: all six of his published collections of instrumental music demonstrate his exceptional skill as a violinist and composer, but it was in his chamber sonatas that he first used what was to be known as the ‘Corelli clash’.

The works of Berlioz have featured prominently in Ticciati’s programmes with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra since he was appointed Principal Conductor in 2009 earning critical acclaim. With this recording Ticciati succeeds in his aim to offer audiences ‘a thought-provoking and new way of listening to the piece’.

This is the follow up Retrospect’s debut recording, released to celebrate the 350th birthday of Henry Purcell, and reunites four Baroque instrumentalist superstars. Continuing the composer’s trio sonata texture found in Ten Sonatas in Four Parts, Purcell’s later set is much more forward-looking to the later Baroque rather than taking inspiration from the old style contrapuntal models found in the earlier set. These sonatas display the composer’s innate ability at blending influences from French, Italian and English music; exotic dissonances can be heard alongside the unique use of counterpoint. This recording was nominated for a BBC Music Magazine Award and an International Classical Music Award and was named a ‘Choice’ recording by Gramophone, BBC Music Magazine and International Record Review. Recorded at St George’s, Chesterton, the recording beautifully captures the timeless beauty of Purcell’s most highly regarded instrumental works.

For her recital debut the in-demand concerto soloist performs a selection of twentieth-century concertos, including the rarely recorded Liebermann Concerto for Flute and Orchestra. The Liebermann concerto has rarely been recorded in its entirety. Commissioned and originally performed by James Galway, the concerto is considered one of the most substantial and significant additions to the flute repertoire in recent years. Considered ‘a flautist’s dream composer’ (BBC Music Magazine) Liebermann’s writing is full of optimistic, audience-friendly and tuneful melodies with rapid-fire fingering passages that showcase the technical prowess of the soloist. Katherine stated: ‘I feel that Lowell Liebermann’s concerto encompasses all the emotions and colours of which the flute is so brilliantly capable and it is for me, quite simply a twentieth-century virtuoso masterpiece, and thrilling to play.’ The inclusion of works by Hu¨e, Nielsen and Poulenc in the programme shows the particular diversity of the flute, demonstrating the variety of repertoire composed for the instrument during the twentieth century.

In its second release on Linn, The Avison Ensemble explores the rich diversity and delights of all twelve concertos in Vivaldi’s Opus 8. It includes the composer’s most famous work, 'The Four Seasons’, which contains some of the most instantly recognizable music ever composed and is today viewed as a pinnacle of musical art.

Each of the twelve concertos is extremely demanding and Beznosiuk’s virtuosity permeates throughout each performance. The thematic elements within each innovative work results in a collection that is colourful, fresh and emotionally charged and a true testament of Vivaldi’s ability for invention and variation. Beznosiuk states: ‘The Four Seasons are well-known, well-loved and great fun to play, but let us not forget how richly characterful the other eight concerti are also. Throughout the set Vivaldi’s musical energy vibrates within us, connecting us to him in an irresistible, celebratory collection’.

Handel: Concerti Grossi Opus 6 marked the Linn debut of the outstanding period instrument orchestra, The Avison Ensemble.

This recording earned Opus d’Or and BBC Music Magazine ‘Choice’ accolades, was named a ‘Finalist’ at the 2011 Gramophone Awards and High Fidelity’s ‘Best Recording of 2010’. Handel’s Opus 6 is widely considered as one of the definitive examples of the concerto grosso form: their symphonic variety of colour, texture and emotion sets them apart from other examples. The Avison Ensemble has frequently performed these works since its formation in 1985; this recording represents a culmination of its experience. Beznosiuk stated: ‘These new readings are a chance to revisit old and familiar friends and to reacquaint ourselves with Handel’s genius, but above all, to joyously revel in some of the greatest string music ever penned.’

Bach’s Mass in B minor is undoubtedly his most spectacular choral work and this 2010 soloist-led performance by Dunedin Consort enables a level of clarity and expression that is not traditionally a feature of modern choral performance. Another huge critical success for Dunedin Consort, it was described as ‘spine-tingling’, an ‘electric performance’ and ‘a definitive recording’; it also earned a Gramophone ‘Editor’s Choice’ accolade. Dunedin Consort performs the premiere recording of the work in the 2006 Breitkopf & Härtel edition, edited by Joshua Rifkin, a leading thinker in authentic period performance, who fully endorses John Butt’s interpretation. The music capitalizes on the very essence of the group’s skills: skilled virtuosic choral performance coupled with outstanding, characterful solo singing.

The COE deliver the ‘wonderful freshness’ Stravinsky himself envisioned in Apollon musagete with their bright and spirited performance. The Guardian commented: “In Stravinsky’s Apollon musagete each and every player contributed to the distinctive, rich-toned sonority.” The Pulcinella Suite is a ballet based on some of Pergolesi’s most memorable music. The COE has recorded the more unusual 1949 ‘revised’ version of the 1922 concert suite which is in eight sections and performed without voices. The Independent commented: “Stravinsky’s Pulcinella Suite brimmed over with the energy and insight of first-rate musicians discovering every opportunity such sunny music offered them.” The COE recorded this album at eglise Maronite Notre-Dame-du-Liban, Paris, in November 2008. They performed this Stravinsky programme at Cite de la musique, Paris, Konzerthaus, Vienna and Philharmonie, Luxembourg to widespread critical acclaim.

Expectations for Dunedin Consort’s recording of Acis & Galatea were high; its release in 2008 followed on from its hugely successful recording of Handel’s Messiah. The combination of Messiah’s award-winning cast and director John Butt’s insights into authentic performance practice ensured it was met with numerous recommendations and outstanding reviews. Acis & Galatea is a beautiful pastoral entertainment; Handel’s first dramatic work in English is a simple yet highly emotional story that encompasses the extremes of love and tragedy. There are notable differences in the original performing version from 1718, including changes in instrumentation and vocal scoring (there is no alto line) made by Handel to suit the forces at Cannons. Butt chose this version specifically because of the small forces involved, since this was one of the aspects that made Messiah so distinctive; although there have been ‘first versions’ of Acis recorded before, Butt felt that there were certain aspects of the original version that had not yet been sufficiently realized.

What makes this recording unique is that Dunedin Consort presents the Matthew Passion with Bach’s final revisions of scoring, as performed around 1742 (its most familiar form is the 1736 version). John Butt and the Dunedin Consort recreate the instrumentation and vocal scoring that Bach employed to deliver a unique and historically informed recording; most striking is the use of eight principal voices (four in each of the two choirs). Matthew Passion, one of Bach’s most celebrated choral masterpieces, is an emotional and challenging musical experience delivered with style and insight by the Dunedin Consort.

Alison Mitchell performs the Flute Concerto; its charming melodies and elegant phrasing belie Mozart’s claim to dislike the instrument. Written when Mozart was just eighteen, the Bassoon Concerto allows soloist Ursula Leveaux to showcase the full range and expressivity of her instrument. Maximiliano Martín gives a virtuosic performance of arguably the most famous of these three showpieces, the Clarinet Concerto. Written in 1791 for a Stadler clarinet, which extended the instrument’s lower range by four notes, Martín has adapted the text of the first edition (published with the solo part adapted to suit an ordinary clarinet) to make the best use of the clarinet’s lowest register as Mozart intended.

Released to coincide with his third season as Music Director of the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Robin Ticciati has forged a close and highly successful partnership with his orchestra. This, his fourth recording with DSO Berlin, continues his series of music by French composers (Debussy, Fauré, Ravel, Duparc) with a significant move into choral music: the Duruflé Requiem. Ticciati is joined by mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kožená, who has performed Debussy’s Ariettes oubliées and Duparc songs on previous DSO recordings, and the Grammy award-winning Rundfunkchor Berlin. Written in response to Fauré’s own Requiem and with Debussy’s influence paramount, Duruflé created one of the most significant sacred works of the twentieth century. Ticciati describes this masterpiece as “a balm for the soul, a score filled with tremendous hope and peaceful searching”. Most typically recorded with organ accompaniment, Ticciati has chosen to record Duruflé’s own orchestrated version which allows the conductor to create a unique blend of choral and orchestral colours recalling the sound-world of Debussy and the Impressionists. Fittingly the programme also includes Debussy’s Nocturnes, a welcome addition following the critically-acclaimed reception of Ticciati’s recording of La mer.

Having won acclaim for his recent recordings of French repertoire, Robin Ticciati now turns to the music of Anton Bruckner. Ticciati is well suited to conducting Bruckner with an approach that is both ‘expansive and revelatory’ (The Guardian). Having already performed this work with the Bergen Philharmonic and Vienna Symphony Orchestras, Ticciati returned to Berlin to continue his recording series with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester. Bruckner broke new ground with his Sixth Symphony; its meandering harmonies, intricate rhythms and imaginative instrumentation are coupled with contrasting moods and a theme that moves satisfyingly from dark to light. Occasionally overshadowed by the more familiar Fifth and Seventh symphonies, the Sixth has many extraordinary moments, including the astonishing Scherzo. Notably this was the first work that the self-doubting composer did not seek to revise. Ticciati describes this symphony as ‘wild, daring and risky’, a perfect pairing for this engaging and charismatic conductor.

Image Last Three String Quartets (50th Anniversary Recor
The Fitzwilliam String Quartet celebrates a remarkable milestone with this special fiftieth anniversary recording of Shostakovich’s last three string quartets. Fittingly, this landmark recording will look back to the music which first propelled the Fitzwilliam to international prominence. Shostakovich entrusted the Fitzwilliam with the western premieres of his last three quartets (Nos.13, 14, 15), and before long they had become the first ever group to perform and record all fifteen, winning many international awards along the way. The highly innovative String Quartet No.13 is notable for its unique single-movement form and the virtuosic viola writing, which shines a spotlight on founding member Alan George. No.14, despite its twelve-tone structure, is perhaps the most accessible of Shostakovich’s late quartets with a wealth of identifiable melodies. The six movements of No.15 are profoundly melancholic and intimate, with the composer’s obsession with death a clear influence. The Fitzwilliam’s pre-eminence in the interpretation of these works has persisted: Benjamin Britten reported after Shostakovich’s death in 1975 that the composer had told him the Fitzwilliam were his ‘preferred performers of my quartets’.

Image Aimer et mourir – Danses et melodies
September 2018 marks the start of Robin Ticciati’s second season as Music Director of the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin and the release of his second recording with his new orchestra. The partnership’s critically acclaimed debut of Debussy and Faure led MusicWeb International to comment: '[this] certainly whets the appetite for future releases from Robin Ticciati with the DSO Berlin.' This second all-French programme sees Magdalena Kožena return to perform a selection of songs by Henri Duparc alongside orchestral music by his fellow countryman Maurice Ravel. The popular Suite No. 2 from Ravel’s epoch-making ballet Daphnis et Chloe showcases Ticciati’s flair for highlighting intricacies of detail and colour; listen as the beautifully descriptive sunrise ('Lever du jour') bursts into vivid, multi-hued life. In Ravel’s Valses nobles et sentimentales Ticciati creates a well-paced, yet graceful, Impressionist swirl with clearly defined textures and shimmering orchestral colours. Duparc’s melodies, which Ravel himself described as 'works of genius', sound particularly opulent in their orchestral scoring; the warm tones of Kožena’s ravishing voice provide a perfect match.

Image The Great Service & Anthems
The Odyssean Ensemble’s impressive debut recording features the Great Service of William Byrd, a rather neglected work of genius interspersed with some contemporaneous anthems. Uniquely the Odyssean Ensemble performs the piece in a new performing edition created by Byrd expert Andrew Johnstone, who also contributes fascinating booklet notes. Accompanied by a reconstructed Goetze & Gwynn Tudor organ (the St Teilo organ, expertly played by Christian Wilson), director Colm Carey leads listeners into Byrd’s rich and colourful sound world. The music in the Great Service is of unparalleled proportions and inexhaustible variety; Byrd vividly represents the text at every opportunity stimulating the listener’s imagination. The Great Service encapsulates the canticles that were sung during the services of Matins and Evensong, which made up an important part of Cranmer’s newly created Book of Common Prayer of 1549. This recording continues the Odyssean Ensemble’s exploration of English music of the 16th century, perhaps one of the golden eras of musical composition.

Image Cantiones sacrae
Cantiones sacrae is the long-awaited follow up to Magnificat’s critically acclaimed 25th anniversary recording, Scattered Ashes. The Cantiones sacrae is an unusual work that stands quite apart from Schütz’s other published sacred music in both scale and style. The collection comprises forty Latin motets for four voices, plus a figured bass for continuo accompaniment (realized on this recording by lute, violone and organ), which was added later by the composer. The perfectly crafted works are composed in a learned, contrapuntal style rich in dissonance and range of expression. Schütz cleverly mirrors the intensely intimate nature of the texts using a musical language that looks to inward expression rather than to external effect. Schütz takes every opportunity to exploit vocal timbre and technique in the service of word-painting, with the virtuosic vocal lines ranging from a conservative imitative style to the most avant-garde, chromatic style of the Italian madrigal. Magnificat’s performance of the Opus 4 motets reveals Schütz to be a composer with an imagination of extraordinary variety.

The Orchestra of the Americas performs Aaron Copland’s euphoric Third Symphony and Mexican composer Carlos Chávez’s rousing Sinfonía india in a thrilling Linn debut. Carlos Miguel Prieto, known for his charismatic conducting and dynamic, expressive interpretations, directs the orchestra. The Orchestra of the Americas performed both works at the 2018 Edinburgh Festival as part of a European tour, which saw the orchestra perform at the Rheingau Festival, the Elbphilharmonie and the Krzysztof Penderecki European Centre for Music. Full of hope, heroism and joyful optimism Copland’s Third Symphony is considered the ‘Great American Symphony’; it is perhaps most famous for its finale in which Copland incorporates his Fanfare for the Common Man, an exhilarating conclusion that leaves listeners uplifted. With scintillating indigenous melodies, complex rhythms and highly percussive orchestration, Chávez’s Sinfonía india is the perfect piece to end the programme and showcase this passionate, flamboyant and brilliantly incisive orchestra.

Image Ars longa: Old and new music for theorbo
Ars longa see theorbo specialist Elizabeth Kenny perform a typically inventive recital of diverse repertoire spanning five centuries. The theorbo’s eccentric appearance and tuning belies its expressive and delicate qualities; its versatility extends to beautiful melodies, experimental harmonies and a wonderfully resonant bass. The recital takes the listener from the early avant-garde repertoire for the instrument of Kapsperger and Piccinini to the new and imaginative sounds explored by today’s composers. Taken from his 2011 work Since it was the day of preparation… James MacMillan’s motet is a haunting and melancholy piece in which the theorbo acts as an emblem of human fragility and sadness. Benjamin Oliver wrote Extending from the inside specifically for Kenny, who relishes the unique challenge of combining elements of funk guitar with the Baroque tradition of ground bass. Kenny also inspired Nico Muhly’s Berceuse, a piece which exploits the unconventional tuning system and expressive possibilities of the theorbo to powerful effect.

Image Strings Quartets Op. 71
The Maxwell Quartet’s recording debut stands out for its innovative approach: each of Haydn’s Op. 71 quartets is paired with a tune, or set of traditional tunes, from the ensemble’s homeland of Scotland. This prize-winning quartet believes classical music has a strong connection to its folk music heritage and aims to marry the two together with this unique and meaningful programme. Interspersing each of the three Op. 71 quartets, are the Maxwells’ own arrangements of traditional Scottish music designed to both celebrate and acknowledge the folk music heritage which influenced both performer and composer centuries apart. Surprisingly there are relatively few recent recordings of the Op. 71 quartets, yet they contain some of Haydn’s most virtuosic writing for string quartet. Each quartet has its own unique quality: No. 1 is overwhelmingly joyful, No. 2 is lyrical and romantic and No. 3 is perhaps the most compositionally innovative of the set. Hailed as superb storytellers and great communicators, the Maxwell Quartet’s inventive debut will add to its growing reputation as one of the UK’s most exciting strings quartets.

Image The Symphonies
As Robin Ticciati enters his final season with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Linn celebrates his memorable tenure as Principal Conductor with a recording of four of the most sublime orchestral masterpieces ever written. The recording legacy of these revolutionary and distinctive works serves to underscore the confidence Ticciati has, not only in his own vision for these symphonies, but also in his partnership with the musicians of the SCO, who relish Brahms’ highly virtuosic orchestral writing. The SCO’s renowned recordings of Mozart Symphonies are a natural predecessor to Brahms, who advances the form’s classicism into the Romantic era. Ahead of the SCO 15/16 Season, in which all four symphonies were performed, Ticciati set out his aims: ‘The challenge…is to find a Brahms sound with the orchestra. To find something so unbelievably dark, autumnal, and yet steeped in counterpoint.’ By 2017, that Brahms sound was perfected; Ticciati’s interpretations are both muscular and energized, with detail and life in every line. Ticciati’s meticulous control of tempo, phrase shape and balance results in performances of extraordinary transparency and colour. This recording marks a major landmark in Ticciati’s career.

EDITOR'S CHOICE
a debut disc - the result of success at the York Early Music Competition - from a young Baroque ensemble possessed of all the flair, creative rapport and passion required to make the music of this era such a thrilling listen Gramophone 2019

BarrocoTout makes its recording debut following a prize-winning performance at the highly respected biennial York Early Music International Young Artists Competition. After a hard-fought competition Philip Hobbs, Chairman of the Judges and Linn’s Chief Producer, said: “The level of musical performance has been exceptional… BarrocoTout are an extraordinary ensemble.” Formed at the Royal Conservatoires in Brussels, the ensemble has chosen to champion the music of a hitherto neglected Belgian composer: Henri-Jacques de Croes. Treading a path between French, Italian and German influences, de Croes produced music that was courtly yet with enlightenment aspirations. The trio sonatas of Op. 5 were written with a touch of Rococo in mind and a strong Italianate flavour. With only one copy in existence the Six Sonates have hitherto led only a shadowy existence and were regarded as ‘lost’ for many years. With this recording BarrocoTout aims to quash the myth that ‘unknown is unloved’.
