February 2019 Album Reviews

Each month, PARMA has the pleasure of not only releasing powerful works by our artists, but also seeing the positive impact that these works have on listeners. Read on for a selection of what the press had to say this month about releases from Ansonica, Navona, and Ravello Records.


“The ability for Baxter to create music that sounds and speaks naturally from such a vast array of instrumental colors is indicative of a true master. “

Chalked Up Reviews on RESISTANCE


“…the American composer’s release is all the more satisfying for granting oboist Ling-Fei Kang and English hornist Charles Huang a generous forum.”

Textura on IMAGINARY BIRDS


“These fascinating segments are as interesting in their own way as the more polished masterworks from earlier in the programme. Hirota uses them to paint a bright and colourful pianistic kaleidoscope.”

Music for Several Instruments on SCHOENBERG PIANO MUSIC


“… this helps show off the choir’s ability to tackle a variety of repertoire across different cultures to show off their musical diversity.”

Cinemusical on I CARRY YOUR HEART


“It’s an irresistible disc that also comes with exquisite production values enjoyed throughout.”

Latin Jazz Network on ESPONTÁNEO


“To cut to the chase: this is a big, bold, full-blooded symphony full of drama and emotion, and technicolor orchestration…”

Records International on CENTURIA S-QUARK


“The performances here are equally accomplished and make for a rather engaging album of new music.”

Cinemusical on CROSSWIND


“An eclectic and compelling release that it’s my privilege to introduce.”

Classical Guitar Magazine on WAKING THE SPARROWS
