New album with orchestral music out now!
by Flint Juventino Beppe
Vladimir Ashkenazy, conductor
Emily Beynon, flute
- This is a stunningly unusual flute concerto full of poetry, drama and intense feelings. As with the other works on this fine disc, it is brilliantly played by the Philharmonia Orchestra under Vladimir Ashkenazy. Emily Beynon is a superb soloist.
The Classical Reviewer, May 2014
- 2Līs recording - Blu-ray and accessible in 5.1 and 7.1 DTS, 2.0 LPCM and 9.1 Auro-3D - does indeed sound breathtaking.
Gramophone magazine, April 2014
- Vladimir Ashkenazy is conducting a stunning Philharmonia Orchestra, which manages to bring out the turbulent dynamics and occasional ferocity of these compositions in an outstanding manner.
