'Monteverdi: Vespers' given Building a Library accolade
Dunedin Consort in the charts
Following its sensational release of Bach's 'John Passion', the acclaimed Dunedin Consort returns with an invigorating performance of Bach's Brandenburg Concertos. After the first week of sales the album is at No. 2 in the Specialist Classical Chart and No. 13 in the Classical Artist Chart - a great result!
In the more than capable hands of Bach-expert, John Butt, Dunedin's first instrumental release is a resounding success, having secured two five star reviews so far:
'Melodic ideas are beautifully punctuated and phrased, vibrato is used strictly ornamentally, and tempos strike my sensibilities as pretty well ideal.' BBC Music Magazine
'...a profoundly expressive study in texture and articulation, with the string lines effortlessly and naturally interlaced.' The Guardian
