Recording of the Month

Gramophone Recording of the Month:
‘One of the striking facets of Ticciati’s conducting and the SCO’s playing in Les nuits d’ été is the clarity and detail that springs from the score...The refined, natural calibration of dynamics and the supple weaving of the orchestral fabric are an absolute joy.’

 

'No. 1 Classical Album of 2013' The Glasgow Herald 

 

A pupil of Sir Simon Rattle and the great Berliozian Sir Colin Davis, Robin's reputation as one of this generations best conductors was assured when he was announced as the next music director of Glyndebourne, taking over from Vladimir Jurowski in 2014. Named one of the top ten young ‘conductors on the verge of greatness' by Gramophone Magazine, Robin delivers fresh insights and vivid colours into this luminous work.  The recording features Kathleen Ferrier prize-winning mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill, who has sung at the Metropolitan Opera, New York and won acclaim as Cleopatra, a role she reprises here: ‘...the core of this stunning concert was a shattering, heart-rending performance by Cargill in awesome voice.' (The Herald).

The works of Berlioz have featured prominently in Ticciati's programmes with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra since he became their principal conductor in 2009.  Ticciati's recording debut, Berlioz: Symphonie Fantastique, received rave reviews: it was named Critics' Choice 'Sound of 2012' (The Independent), 'Classical CD of the Week' (The Sunday Times), 'Disc of the Week' (BBC Radio 3 'CD Review') and No. 3 in The Sunday Times' Best Classical Albums of 2012 list.

‘…l’ottima Scottish Chamber, ma certamente colpisce, in questo CD, il ricorso continuo a tinte astello, il rifiuto totale dell’enfasi, del canto spiegato e la ricerca della sobrieta`, dell’eleganza.’

BBC Radio 3 'CD Review'
‘It’s an excellent display of the richness of her voice and the vocal and dynamic range. And the playing while the chamber scale sucks us into the heart of the poetry with the really clean, clear sound the Scottish Chamber Orchestra can produce.’

International Record Review
‘Karen Cargill is up against some illustrious mezzo competition on disc, yet her ravishing account of Les nuits d’ete ranks up there with the best of them.’

MusicWeb International
‘I was completely entranced…sounds excellent.’

The Arts Desk
‘Robin Ticciati achieves exactly the right lightness, the delicacy, in a song cycle which should ideally delight as much as it moves. He’s well matched by mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill…Best of all is L’île inconnue; Cargill’s “Où voulez-vous aller?” is impossible to resist.’
