February's new Studio Master releases
01 February 2014
Chopin specialist Ingrid Fliter makes her Linn debut with an effortless performance of Chopin's notoriously difficult piano concertos, featuring the Scottish Chamber Orchestra conducted by Jun Märkl. BBC Music Magazine awarded the album four stars praising Fliter's 'luminous tone,assured yet unshowy bravura...authoritative confidence and beautifully judged dynamic shading.'
Canada's Royal Wood has enjoyed critical acclaim and chart success for his latest album, ‘We Were Born To Glory', which was
nominated for ‘Adult Alternative Album of the Year' at the 2013 Juno Awards. A hugely enjoyable, classy and cohesive album. Highly recommended!
Previous Gramophone 'Artist of the Year' winner Julia Fischer has usually confined her more virtuosic repertoire to recital encores. Her new album on Decca however, shows off the extent of her abilities on the violin with a selection of pieces by Pablo de Sarasate.
Inspired by swampy delta blues, gospel, Appalachian folk, country and rock, Rosanne Cash has created an impressive and rich contemporary collection of songs which Uncut described as 'mesmerizing'.
Renowned countertenor Iestyn Davies and The King's Consort present an outstanding programme of arias from Handel oratorios which was named 'Album of the Week' by The Sunday Times.
