Album information

Ticciati cements his reputation as an outstanding Berliozian with his latest recording, L'enfance du Christ, featuring the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Swedish Radio Chorus. 

Robin Ticciati and the SRSO are joined by a sterling cast of soloists including: Stephan Loges, winner of the Wigmore Hall International Song Competition; Veronique Gens, whose recording of Berlioz' Les nuits d'été was named Gramophone 'Editor's Choice'; Yann Beuron, who was unanimously awarded first prize in 1996 from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris; and Alistair Miles, who has been called 'the finest British bass of his generation' by The Guardian.

Berlioz's mighty oratorio was an immediate success and was praised by all but two critics in the Paris newspapers; over 150 years later it is still as popular.

In the December 2014 issue Gramophone named this recording the 'Top Choice' for this repertoire, stating: "Artistic discretion and emotional truth go hand in hand in this beautifully observed performance, with Berlioz's luminous orchestration and dramatic scheme perceptively articulated by Robin Ticciati and with a chorus and soloists who unerringly get to the music's heart."
