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.
[Above: Performers on TWO CELLS IN SEVILLA at a recording session]
“A curiously imaginative chamber opera…”
“The performances are deliciously virtuoso and full of life…”
“A thoughtful and adventurous album.”
“In this collection, electronics bring colorful and vibrant backdrops to instrument activity.”
“[T]he music [is] pared to its essence to communicate without obfuscation and with clarity and immediacy, and…[has] a penchant for strong, unfussy melodies and solid orchestral structures.”
“All the soloists are champions of Anderson’s inventive brainstorms.”
“IN YOUR HEAD…is a reminder of how much wonderful four-hands repertoire there actually is beyond the familiar material of the 19th and early 20th centuries.”
“[Carollo’s] latest recording… includes 15 contemporary works that capture the wide sweeps of inner emotional landscapes expressed purely through musical language and form.”
