Edin Karamazov (lutes and electric guitar) with Renee Fleming, Kaliopi, Andreas Scholl & Sting

‘What I want to do with my lute is to sing’ Edin Karamazov

On his extraordinary debut album, the modern master of the lute explores all the colours of this most evocative and versatile of instruments - in music from the Renaissance to the modern day. The many voices of his lutes and guitars are joined by four of today’s most remarkable singers - Renée Fleming, Kaliopi, Andreas Scholl & Sting - in new interpretations of songs from the pop, folk and classical traditions.

“…a release that's as unusual and distinctive as Edin Karamazov's own playing. What other lutenist would open his disc with Leo Brouwer's Paisaje cubano con rumba, originally for four guitars but here played on a single, multi-tracked electric guitar, and follow it by accompanying Sting on archlute as the latter sings his own 'Alone with my thoughts this evening"?” Gramophone Magazine, June 2009

Janet Baker (mezzo-soprano)

A new 2-CD compilation from Dame Janet Baker's many Decca and Philips recordings, released to mark her 75th birthday on 21 August 2008.

This generously-filled 150-minute programme ranges from arie antiche and baroque arias through to one of Benjamin Britten's last works, the cantata Phaedra, written specially for Janet Baker.

Recordings included in this programme were made between 1961 and 1977 and showcase the many and varied vocal talents of this much-loved, and justifiably internationally-lauded artist.

“A fine selection which demonstrates the English mezzo's huge range of expression in repertory ranging from Baroque to Britten (the cantata Phaedra written for her) and the unique commitment she brought to everything she sang.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2009 *****
