Recent CD Reviews

My review of a disc of Jewish sacred music by Yehudi Wyner is here.

The performances are not perfect, but under the composer’s own direction they have a significant authority and illuminate the different pathways of Jewish sacred music.

And my review of the Classical Opera Company's remarkable reconstruction and revivification of Arne's Artaxerxes is here. Both reviews are on MusicWeb International.

A remarkable discovery. Arne had a winning combination of dramatic flair, virtuoso verve and a nicely gallant style. The opera isn’t perfect but it repays repeated listening.
