Colin Currie percussion

Borrowed Time music by Dave Maric, CD on Onyx

“…this is ultimately Currie’s disc and his playing, with its vibrancy and focus, is captivating throughout.”
Daily Telegraph September 2007

Antoine Tamestit viola

Bach & Ligeti, CD on Ambroisie

“Tamestit’s lively, historically informed manner extends through the earlier movements of the Partita, the rhythmic character of each dance emerging with great clarity. The performance of the Ligeti – a magnificent, enthralling piece that’s already emerged as a peak of the viola repertoire – is extraordinarily clean and accurate.”
Duncan Druce, Gramophone August 2007

Ralph van Raat piano

John Adams Complete Piano Music, CD on Naxos

“…van Raat obtains a near-hypnotic control in the two early pieces, almost mechanical in its reliability, and he bubbles with life in the later two”
Martin AndersonInternational Piano Magazine March/April 2007 

“Van Raat made Phrygian Gates grippingly sing, breathe naturally, blindingly change colours, fill the space with sonorous sounds and whisper intimately. Breath-taking”
Anthony Fium, Luister June 2007

Viviane Hagner violin

Ciaccona: Bach, Bartok, Hartmann, CD on Altara

“…though obviously a splendid violinist, it’s her musicianship and emotional involvement that continually stand out”
Gramophone May 2007

“Technically faultless and consistently interesting, this is an extraordinary recital”
Independent on Sunday March 2007
