CD Reviews

An outstanding Purcell disc
Robert J. Cruce | Muskogee, OK United States | 09/22/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The performances here are very satisfying, the Purcell suites interspersed with dreamy sequences of harpsichord pieces. This is a reissue from several decades ago that once again shows how sensitive modern digital remastering can bring out the best in such recordings. Some would find things to pick at, but this is one of the most satisfying Purcell CD's to have ever come my way. Its a modern instrument reading, but don't let that put you off. This isn't old instrument bowing and scraping. Its music making of a high order and you can't beat the price."
Fantastc Work From Hartford!!!

"OK, aside from the fact that I used to handle PR for the Hartford Symphony Orchestra, I would still rave about this recording. Fritz Mahler (related to the great Gustav Mahler) took the HSO to new heights with a series of recordings taken from The Bushnell in Hartford. Outstanding sound quality truly enhances the amazing music of Purcell. A must have for Purcell and classical fans alike. Also check about The HSO's recording of Carmina Burana, the first ever recording of the piece."
