“The three-disc set is a must, not merely because it offers such a broad conspectus of Rachmaninov's music but also because Jansons and the St Petersburg Philharmonic give such masterly accounts of it. Jansons harnesses the music's wistfulness, coaxes beautifully inflected lines in the instrumental solo-writing, and brings his legendary clarity and energy to bear on the rhythmic impetus of the outer movements.” The Telegraph, 24th May 2008

The Gloucester Cathedral Choir follow their imaginative and acclaimed first release on AVIE, In The Beginning (AV 2072) with a spirited holiday album of traditional and contemporary carols, including famous arrangements by Sir David Willcocks and Sir Philip Ledger, as well as the newly commissioned title track from Richard Rodney Bennett.

As the successor to the boys and monks of the Benedictine Abbey, The Gloucester Cathedral Choir boasts a tradition tracing back over 900 years. Henry VIII established their current incarnation, along with the Church of England, in 1539. Andrew Nethsingha, the choir’s Music Director at the time of this recording, was a chorister at Exeter Cathedral, where his father, the distinguished Sri Lankan-born English church musician Lucian Nethsingha, was director of music for 26 years. He studied at the Royal College of Music where he was awarded seven prizes and was the youngest cathedral organist in Britain when appointed to Truro Cathedral in 1994. In addition to singing in six services every week, the Gloucester Cathedral Choir is heard annually at the Three Choirs Festival, and regularly at the Cheltenham International Festival and on BBC radio and television broadcasts.

“Under Nethsingha’s directions, Gloucester Cathedral Choir sing with confidence and refinement” Sunday Times

Wojciech Kocyan (piano)

“Wojciech Kocyan's Prokofiev Seventh is one of the best in the catalogue. He applies whimsical, marvellously timed rhythmic freedom to the first two movements, while judiciously balancing the finale's right-hand chords against the driving left hand, resulting in delicious textural interplay and melodic momentum.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2008

“Small label and unknown pianist deliver world-class artistry and first-rate engineering. Wojciech Kocyan not only stands ground alongside Pollini, Ashkenazy and Richter, but he also offers original insights that totally serve the music. If you see this disc, grab it.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2007

Tatiana Pavlovskaya, (soprano), Evgeny Akimov (tenor) & Vladimir Vaneev (baritone)

WDR Sinfonieorchester Köln, WDR Rundfunkchor Köln & Lege Artis Chamber Choir, Semyon Bychkov

“Rachmaninoff was so often seen as the composer of pretty, rather banal melodies, but I believe we are now free enough to regard him more objectively and less ideologically. And if we do, it becomes apparent that this music was written by a man of great intellect, a master of musical form, a master of orchestral treatment, who continued to develop throughout the course of his life.” (Semyon Bychkov)

“…the real reason for investigating this release is Bychkov's compelling account of the still all-too-rarely heard 1913 cantata The Bells. Not only does the Russian maestro marshal his sizeable, immaculately prepared forces with conspicuous skill, his three home-grown soloists respond with great fervour and sensitivity.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2007

“The WDR Sinfonieorchester of Cologne plays as if mesmerised by Bychkov’s baton” The Times
