Phantasm records Bach in Berlin, at the very venue where Herbert von Karajan used to record, the Jesus-Christus-Kirche in Berlin-Dahlem.
Europadisc Top 10 Album of 2018
Europadisc has published its Top 10 recordings of 2018 and Locke: For Lovers of Consort Music by Phantasm and Elizabeth Kenny is included! In its review Europadisc stated, "Another revelation this year has been the consort music of Matthew Locke, in benchmark performances from the superb viol consort Phantasm on the Linn label. By teaming up with their regular lutenist partner Elizabeth Kenny, they create a staggering variety of textures in Locke’s music, full of unexpected and completely beguiling harmonic twists and turns. It’s as if the listener is eavesdropping on instrumentalists simply making music for their own pleasure at the highest level of artistry. Even for those as yet unfamiliar with the delights of consort music-making, this is a disc to treasure over and over again."
