January 2019 Album Reviews

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


“The sonata-form opening movement, meditative central span and concluding toccata are terrifically well realised by Choi.”

Gramophone on BOUNDLESS


“Fuse Ensemble’s 3: THE MUSIC OF GINA BIVER demonstrates the enormous possibilities that come with composer-engineer crossovers–and it is just so much fun to listen to.”

I CARE IF YOU LISTEN on 3: THE MUSIC OF GINA BIVER


“This is an interesting collection of vocal music and any one of these cycles would have listeners of contemporary music sit up and pay notice.”

Cinemusical on WHISPERS OF HEAVENLY DEATH


“What makes GLACIER MUSIC an especially compelling release beyond its obvious musical quality is its associated thematic dimension, whose timeliness makes the project seem all the more substantial and relevant.”

Textura on GLACIER MUSIC


“This newer release offers a kinder, gentler recording of tonal chamber works by Samuel A. Livingston….The notably self-taught American composer ably creates tightly knit contrapuntal textures during each of his four pieces.”

Winnipeg Free Press on GENTLE WINDS


“Campbell Ross is on great display here as a guitarist with the ability to play across a number of genres and his program here demonstrates this.”

Cinemusical on CONCERTANTE


“I predict that we are going to hear a lot more of this extremely talented composer, who has a lot to say and expresses it very well.”

Classical Music Daily on PICTURES OF THE HIDDEN


“The singing on these albums is so magnificent, you might well find yourself planning a trip to South Dakota for the pure, unalloyed pleasure of seeing the ensemble work its magic live.”

Textura on I CARRY YOUR HEART
