Expertly sung and played, but I have reservations over the conducting.

Rowland's playing is admirable throughout.
Edvin KALLSTENIUS (1881-1967) Symphony 1; Sinfonietta 2; Musica Sinfonica -

I sincerely hope that this is the beginning of a Kallstenius series.
Gustav MAHLER (1860-1911) Urlicht Lieder -
Christianne Stotijn (mezzo) Julius Drake (piano) rec. 2006
Crystal clear diction, natural warmth and mellow timbre, this singer's personality and expressiveness makes a vivid impression.

Elora Festival Singers/Noel Edison rec. 2012/13
A good quality, budget CD presenting so well in so many areas.

Does not do justice to performances that in the concert hall have really been something very special indeed.
Diana Damrau (soprano)
Fiamma del Belcanto -
Teatro Regio Torino O/Gianandrea Noseda rec. 2014
Damrau displays a range of excellence from a truly caressing pianissimo to her most dramatic outpouring of emotion.

Christopher Allsop (organ)
An eclectic and attractive programme, very well performed on the new Worcester organ.
