In the past month the fantastic website MusicWeb International has been spoiling us with great reviews of our April releases. You can read excerpts from the reviews below, or click on the titles of the recordings to read the full reviews.
“Whatever one’s view on the matter, Szeryng was an outstanding player. This re-release of his Concertgebouw recordings from 1973 and 1976 is therefore welcome. (…) The Concertgebouw/Philips sonics are first class, and Newton has done a solid job with the package.” By Jonathan Woolf
“Newton Classics is one of the latest companies to spoil us by making available the riches of the majors’ back catalogues. (…) These beautifully recorded performances are as fine as any in the catalogue. Whilst one might prefer this or that movement from this or that group, no collector wanting these particular works and purchasing this disc, especially given the absurdly cheap price, can go wrong.” By William Hedley
“They reappear now on my first experience of the Newton label, an enterprising project to rescue mostly Universal left-overs, many of which are certainly much more than mere tasty morsels, especially the Grieg and Schumann Piano Concertosperformed by Stephen Kovacevich and Sir Colin Davis and the King’s College Cambridge/Cleobury recordings of Tallis. (…) It’s good to have such a choice of first-class versions and to note, when all is said and done, that the Janis reissue is still so competitive.” By Brian Wilson
