4 stars '...sparkling performances...' The Observer

Featured Album: 'A fitting celebration featuring three special performances... Together Ticciati and the strings of the SCO bring out the work's radiantly rich tones.' Classic FM 'Drive' 

4 stars 'Wagner's Siegfried Idyll draws on the orchestra's golden sheen and mellifluousness to give a performance of luminous beauty.' Daily Telegraph

4 stars  ‘...the result is a gorgeous, gleaming account.' Sinfini 

'The orchestra shows itself brilliantly adapted to any style and conductor - provided, anyway, they have more than a smack of genius.' The Sunday Times
 

Although more commonly played in a version for full orchestra rather than for chamber ensemble, this recording of Siegfried Idyll is closer to Wagner's premiere performance, a birthday gift to his wife, Cosima.  Ticciati and the larger string forces of the SCO skilfully enhance the richer tone of the work's radiant beauty.  Robin Ticciati has had an impressive start to his recording career with the SCO, with two critically acclaimed recordings of Berlioz. 

2014 sees Robin Ticciati and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra embark upon their first symphonic cycle with the release of ‘Schumann: Symphonies 1-4' in September 2014. 

Sir Charles Mackerras, the SCO's Conductor Laureate until his passing in 2010, made numerous award-winning recordings including BBC Music Magazine's 2010 ‘Disc of the Year' recording, ‘Mozart Symphonies 38-41', on which this impressive performance of Symphony No. 41 features. Awarding the recording five stars, The Sunday Times described it as possibly their finest record to date...I don't know more enthralling accounts of the Jupiter on disc.'

As Principal Conductor of the SCO from 1996-2005 Joseph Swensen made five thrilling recordings in all, encompassing Brahms, Mendelssohn, Dvorak, Prokofiev and ‘Sibelius: Theatre Music' from which The Tempest is taken. Composed when Sibelius was reaching the climax of his career, the ambitious second Suite contains some of his most inspired ideas and finest music; it is a mouth-watering addition to this program.
