Phantasm records Bach in Berlin, at the very venue where Herbert von Karajan used to record, the Jesus-Christus-Kirche in Berlin-Dahlem.
Disc of the Week - two weeks in a row!
Wow! Linn recordings have been selected as 'Disc of the Week' on BBC Radio 3's CD Review two weeks in a row!
Last week it was Lucy Russell and John Butt's 'J.S. Bach: Sonatas for violin & harpsichord' and this week it was Phantasm's 'Lawes: The Royal Consort'. Andrew McGregor praised the 'ingenious, original world of William Lawes', the consort's 'soulful understanding' and Laurence Dreyfus' 'detailed, passionate and scholarly' notes.
