Mackerras's Mozart symphonies recording named 'Essential' by Hi-Fi News
Schumann is Classical CD of the Week
The Sunday Times has named Schumann: The Symphonies 'Classical CD of the Week', a prestigious accolade previously awarded to Robin Ticciati's debut Berlioz: Symphonie Fantastique and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra's landmark recording of Mozart: Symphonies 38-41 with Sir Charles Mackerras.
Reviewer Hugh Canning praises Ticciati's 'near-ideal tempi' the 'splendidly swaggering horns' and states that 'Ticciati's Scottish Chamber Orchestra has nothing to fear from comparisons.'
This is the latest in a string of accolades this remarkable recording has already accumulated in the short time it has been released.
Orchestral Choice: 'The Adagio of Symphony No. 2 is beautifully done, with a coda that really tugs at the heartstrings...the interpretations...will reward repeated hearing.' Performance / Sound BBC Music Magazine
‘...the finest set on disc [in] a decade...and perhaps the most impressive thing that Ticciati has done on disc so far... hearing these symphonies in such superbly played, convincingly Schumannesque performances is irresistible.' The Guardian
