Sarah Connolly records Brahms with pianist Malcolm Martineau
Florian Boesch Is A Critics' Choice
American Record Guide asked their writers to list the best 10% of recordings which they had previously reviewed in 2018, with no more than 10 permitted. This was a “forced choice”—meaning that most of the reviewers would rather be allowed a few more top choices, so they had to cut down their preliminary lists. Florian Boesch's recording of Schumann & Mahler: Lieder was chosen by Robert Moore as one of his Critics’ Choice recordings of 2018.
