LIRA GILLAR! ”Isabella Lundgren har grävt i låtskatten av jazzhistoriens mest genomtröskade örhängen och återställt dem till det de en gång var. Sånger människor förälskat sig till och gråtit hjärtats brustna tårar över, sånger som låtit människor förlora sig i minnen. Utbrytartekniken hos Lundgren och hennes medmusiker är av högsta klass.” (Magnus Östnäs, Lira)

Högt betyg 5 (av 6) i Svenska Dagbladet! ”Det är inte som förnyare av den vokala jazztraditionen Isabella Lundgren har sin styrka utan i närvaron, allvaret och den emotionella laddning hon ger varje ton och stavelse. Hennes sätt att sjunga går att härröra från Billie Holiday och Ella Fitzgerald men det vi hör är genuint personligt och utan nostalgi.” (Dan Backman, SvD)

Högt betyg 4 (av 5) i Dagens Nyheter!
"Isabella Lundgren lyckas överföra den narrativa kraften hos den klassiska jazzen till sin egen röst och person." (Johannes Cornell, DN)

Image The Passion of Yeshua (2CD)
Richard Danielpour’s dramatic oratorio The Passion of Yeshua- a work which has evolved over the last 25 years- is an intensely personal telling of the final hours of Christ on Earth. It incorporates texts from the Hebrew Scriptures and the Christian gospels inspiring extraordinarily beautiful music that stresses the need for human compassion and forgiveness. Danielpour returns to the scale and majesty of Bach in the oratorio, creating choruses that are intense and powerful, and giving both Mary the mother of Jesus and Mary Magdalene a central place in a work of glowing spirituality. Conductor JoAnn Falletta considers The Passion of Yeshua to be “a classic for all time.”

Högsta betyg till världspremiärinspelning!
”Sången och musicerandet är på högsta nivå rakt igenom, och att detta är ett hjärteprojekt för alla inblandande är rörande tydligt. Ett av årets utropstecken på operafronten.” (Nicholas Ringskog Ferrada-Noli, Dagens Nyheter)


Academy of Ancient Music, Cambridge Handel Opera Company, Cambridge Early Music and Julian Perkins are proud to present the first professional recording of John Eccles’s Semele (c.1707), a notable early setting of the great English libretto by William Congreve better known in a version by GF Handel from 1744. Academy of Ancient Music’s mission is to explore, reveal and preserve the great treasure house of baroque and classical music, and a spirit of newfound discovery runs through all our work. Eccles’s Semele is the next step on this journey, released here on 2 albums an extensive accompanying full-color booklet containing scholarly essays, Stephen Fry’s modern re-telling of the story, autograph manuscript images of Eccles’ score, the full libretto text and much more. A fascinating insight into how opera in England might have developed after Henry Purcell’s death had not Handel moved to London in 1712, Eccles’s Semele is the perfect addition to any baroque-music lover’s library.

Image Complete Symphonies (6CD)
Sergey Prokofiev’s seven symphonies are acknowledged as one of the major cycles of the 20th century, and these recordings with Marin Alsop and the Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra have received widespread critical acclaim. From the crisp vitality of the youthful ‘Classical’ Symphony to the viscerally exciting Third, the Fifth Symphony which for Prokofiev represented ‘the grandeur of the human spirit’ and the deeply moving and heartfelt Sixth Symphony, this is an unforgettable collection crowned by the bittersweet Seventh Symphony, the composer’s final significant work.

Image Solo Concertos
"Our Roman set out as a great musician and returned greater still." On his return from England, "the Swedish virtuoso" inaugurated a series of concerts in Stockholm, the first of their kind in Sweden. He himself was presumably the original soloist in some of the solo concertos performed in this recording.

Image Brockes-Passion (2CD)
Barthold Heinrich Brockes wrote a libretto on the Passion of Christ – based on the account in Matthew’s Gospel – which was set to music by many composers of his time, including Reinhard Keiser, Georg Philip Telemann and George Frideric Handel. It is Handel’s version of the latter that the period-instrument ensemble Arcangelo has chosen to present here. Under the direction of Jonathan Cohen, these specialists in the Baroque repertory are joined by the voices of Sandrine Piau, whose numerous Handel recordings are regarded as a benchmark, the tenor Stuart Jackson and the baritone Konstantin Krimmel, recently revealed in a debut recital for Alpha (Saga, ALPHA549). Together they resurrect the operatic splendor of a work that was first performed in 1719 and is thought to have influenced numerous passages of J. S. Bach’s St John Passion, written a few years later.

Toppbetyg i Musikrevyn, fem radioapparater!
”Exceptionella musiker, oklanderligt framfört på så många sätt. Man faller för hur de musicerar tillsammans, i en fantastisk ljudbild som man skulle vilja bo i hela dagen.” (Musikrevyn)


During the 1930s, Bliss, Britten, and Berkeley all contributed major works to the repertoire for string orchestra, following in the footsteps of Elgar and Vaughan Williams. They are joined on this album by Frank Bridge whose Lament was composed during the First World War. This is the fourth recording by John Wilson with his award-winning Sinfonia of London. Bliss composed Music for Strings after he had completed the film score for Korda’s Things to Come, driven by his desire to compose a piece of ‘pure music’, expressing his own ideas rather than those of others. Commissioned in May 1937 by Boyd Neel for the Salzburg Festival that summer, Britten’s Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge was composed at great speed, and helped to establish the young composer’s international reputation. Dedicated to his teacher, Frank Bridge, the theme is taken from the second of Bridge’s Three Idylls for string quartet. Lennox Berkeley composed his Serenade for Strings at Snape Maltings, where he was living with Britten in 1938 / 39. By the time of its completion the nation was at war and the music seems to reflect the composer’s anxious mood as the world faced an uncertain future.
