World-renowned Baroque guitarist William Carter's appealing collection of early works by Spanish guitar virtuoso and composer Fernando Sor includes some of the finest music ever written for the instrument. This album was named 'Editor's Choice' by Gramophone and HiFi Choice described it as 'sparkling and spellbinding'. Track taken from the album 'Fernando Sor Early Works'.

UK jazz legend Carol Kidd teams up with guitarist Nigel Clark in an imtimate album full of magical moments which captures the spine-tingling intimacy they excel at in their live performances.  'The duo's hushed intimacy and nuanced interpretations linger long in the memory' (Jazzwise).  Track taken from 'Tell Me Once Again'.

Six-times British Jazz Award-winner, Claire Martin, released her second duos album with Richard Rodney Bennett, which features the ever-popular songs of Cy Coleman.  'Touching, clever, beautifully poised and deceptively casual-sounding' (The Observer).  Track taken from 'Witchcraft'.

For her recital debut the in-demand concerto soloist, flutist Katherine Bryan, performs a selection of 20th century concertos, including the rarely recorded Liebermann Concerto for Flute and Orchestra.  'This lovely disc has many highlights...a fine release that deserves this warmest recommendation' (International Record Review).  Track taken from 'Liebermann Flute Concerto and works by Hüe, Poulenc & Nielsen'.

One of Britain's most exciting young ensembles, the Prince Consort, chose the music of Ned Rorem, one of the most widely-recorded living American composers, for their impressive debut.  The recording was endoresed by the composer himself who stated: 'The performances alone and together are in every way ideal. The recording is flawless.'  Track taken from 'Ned Rorem - On an echoing road'.

You'd do well to seek this one out!' (International Record Review).  Taken from the album 'JS Bach Complete Sonatas & Partitas for solo violin'.

Bach's Mass in B minor is undoubtedly his most spectacular choral work and the Dunedin Consort's soloist-led performance enables a level of clarity and expression that is not traditionally a feature of modern choral performance.  This recording was named 'Editor's Choice' by Gramophone and awarded five stars by BBC Music Magazine who stated: 'No performance could better justify small-scale Bach than this convincing marriage of scholarship and inspiration.' Taken from the album 'J.S. Bach Mass in B Minor - Breitkopf & Härtel Edition, edited by J. Rifkin (2006)'.

Phantasm's debut recording on Linn explores the music of the Jacobean composer John Ward and was named BBC Music Choice: 'Phantasm's playing is impeccable...Tudor viol music seldom sounds better than this'. Track taken from 'John Ward: Consort music for five and six viols'.

This celebratory recording by Magnificat showcases the rich, contrapuntal Renaissance style of Philippe Rogier's music and is bursting with lush textures and colours. 'By tastefully enriching and illuminating the harmony...they reinforce its glowing qualities' (Audio Visual Club of Atlanta).  Track taken from 'Philippe Rogier - Polychoral Works'.

Baritone Peter Harvey delivers a unique recording of Schubert's popular song-cycle Winterreise, his historically informed interpretation is further enhanced by Gary Cooper who performs on an early 19th century fortepiano. AllMusic awarded this recording five stars and stated: 'This is a Winterreise not to be missed'.  Track taken from 'Franz Schubert Winterreise'.

Classical Opera gives a wonderful performance of Thomas Arne's Artaxerxes.  Recorded following their acclaimed performance of the opera in 2009 this features the exciting vocal talents of several world-class young artists.  Named 'Disc of the Month' in Opera and the 'Choice' recording in Opera Now whilst Audiophile Audition stated: 'I can't recommend this release too highly. It should be in the collection of every opera lover' and awarded it five stars.  Track taken from 'Artaxerxes'.

The Avison Ensemble, directed by Pavlo Beznosiuk, present George Frideric Handel's complete Opus 6 Concerti Grossi on a three disc set.  This work is widely regarded as the composer's greatest contribution to the Baroque period.  Named 'Orchestral Choice' BBC Music Magazine stated: 'I shall certainly return frequently to this splendid set.' Track taken from 'Handel Concerti Grossi Opus 6'.
