Presto Classical 'Disc of the Year' Finalists
22 November 2016
Presto Classical has announced its Top 100 albums of 2016 ahead of announcing the Top 10 on 2nd December. Dunedin Consort and Scottish Opera are both Finalists.
Scottish Opera's new recording of Gilbert & Sullivan's HMS Pinafore was named a Presto Disc of the Week with reviewer Katherine Cooper stating: '...for my money Egarr and Co. get the balance between tradition and freshness absolutely spot-on...Egarr brings out some wonderful orchestral detail.'
Dunedin Consort's Christmas Oratorio has also received some fantastic press. The Guardian gave it five stars and commented: 'It's surely one of the finest accounts now available of Bach's Christmas Oratorio. The choral sound is pert, sinewy, unforced; the instrumental playing is punchy, broad and charismatic.'
