Toppbetyg i Musikrevyn och Capriccio.se!
”Ett ljudbad att kliva ned i som man blir både glad och varm i själen av. Det spelas på liten sättning – men låter mycket!” (Musikrevyn i P2)

"Vill du höra något mer av Roman än den obligatoriska Drottningholmsmusiken, så har du nu chansen. En så mycket bättre inspelning av Romans Then Svenska Messan lär inte dyka upp i överskådlig framtid." (Per Nylén, Capriccio.se)

Högt betyg 4 (av 5) i DN!
”Mycket har hänt med hur man får liv i barockmusik, såväl vokalt som instrumentalt, vilket Göteborg Baroque med eftertryck ger prov på. Det bubblar, fräser, viner och bär iväg med en oemotståndlig rytmisk lätthet och klanglig lyster i alla de tretton satserna.” (Martin Nyström, Dagens Nyheter)

Image Symphonies Nos. 1-9 (9 CD)
Bruckner's symphonies form the backbone of Late Romantic symphonic music. Indeed, he can be said to have reinvented the symphony – something that not even Liszt or Wagner had dared to do in the wake of the groundbreaking masterpieces by Beethoven that until then had ranked as the climax and end-point of the genre. It was Bruckner and, somewhat later, Brahms who sought and found new methods of reviving the symphonic genre and developing it further. In this regard, Bruckner's approach was entirely new. From the outset, he relied on the sound of the large orchestra, and rather than mixing the individual groups of instruments he tended to either separate them from each other or couple them together like organ registers (with which, as an organist, he was very familiar) ...

Image String Quartets
Felix’s impassioned F minor quartet was the fiercely personal response to his sister’s death in 1847, only a few months before his own. The Takács Quartet frame it with equally committed accounts of a much earlier work, and Fanny’s own important contribution to the genre.

Image Times of Transition
The three cello concertos on this disc illustrate that fertile period in the second half of the 18th century when features of the Baroque were gradually replaced by the so-called galant style. Foremost amongst the composers inaugurating this change was Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach chose Concerto in A major is a perfect example of the passionate and dramatic range that marked him out as a pivotal figure of his time. Haydn’s Concerto in C major modulates between older and newer styles, whereas his Concerto in D major is a Classical masterpiece, and a worthy companion to his greatest symphonies. For this recording Brantelid plays on an Emil Hjort, Copenhagen 1887 with gut strings.

Image Breaking Waves
"“Breaking Waves” is a celebration of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in Sweden. As the battle for universal suffrage was sweeping across Europe, women claimed their right to be heard within music, and to take on the world’s biggest instrument: the orchestra.

The pieces in this unique recording were composed by female pioneers in the history of music: Clara Wieck Schumann (1819–1896), Elfrida Andrée (1841–1929), Helena Munktell (1852–1919), Ethel Smyth (1858–1944) and Lili Boulanger (1893–1918). All the works have been specially arranged for the Swedish Wind Ensemble by Anders Högstedt and were conducted by Cathrine Winnes.

The recording took place at the Musikaliska concert hall in the heart of Stockholm. The Royal Swedish Academy of Music has convened here for a number of musical and historical events over the years and the venue saw the first Swedish performance of Helena Munktell’s work Breaking Waves, during the Academy’s formal gathering. She, Elfrida Andrée and Clara Schumann were all members of the Academy. Today, Musikaliska is the home of the Swedish Wind Ensemble, and an important arena for acoustic music.

The Swedish Wind Ensemble is the largest professional civilian wind ensemble in Sweden. The orchestra has developed from a brass sextet, founded in 1906, into a modern, bold and innovative ensemble. The orchestra has actively striven for a more equal repertoire and greater gender awareness. Ever since its ‘Skip the Full Beard’ initiative in 2010, the orchestra has developed, arranged and performed a number of works written by women.

Cathrine Winnes has been the orchestra’s artistic director and principal conductor since 2015. She has been praised for her brave and unusual programming, and has been widely recognised as a broadcaster in the dual capacity of both conductor and TV presenter.

Image Matthew Passion (3 CD)
The Dunedin Consort, under the direction of John Butt, cemented its reputation as outstanding Bach interpreters with this 2008 recording of the Matthew Passion. A critical success, the recording received multiple five star reviews and was named ‘Disc of the Month’ by Gramophone, ‘Building A Library: First Choice’ by BBC Radio 3’s ‘Record Review’ and one of the ‘5 Essential Works by Bach’ by BBC Music Magazine. What makes this recording unique is that Dunedin Consort presents the Matthew Passion with Bach’s final revisions of scoring, as performed around 1742 (its most familiar form is the 1736 version). John Butt and the Dunedin Consort recreate the instrumentation and vocal scoring that Bach employed to deliver a unique and historically informed recording; most striking is the use of eight principal voices (four in each of the two choirs). Matthew Passion, one of Bach’s most celebrated choral masterpieces, is an emotional and challenging musical experience delivered with style and insight by the Dunedin Consort.
