Gramophone Magazine

Awards Issue 2010

“Best among the soloists are Evelyn Pollock's nimble, sweet-toned Creusa...and Lawrence Brownlee's Egeo, pleasingly Italianate of tone and negotiating his vertiginous coloratura with skill and style...the individual instrumentalists excel in their many solos, while David Stern shows a sure command of theatrical pacing.”
