Reviews for ‘Sturm und Drang’ – Volume 3

Reviews for Ian’s latest recording with The Mozartists have been outstanding.

““Another exceptionally satisfying addition to a series that is special not just for the thought and scholarship that goes into it, but Page’s direction of his fine players. It is throughout beautifully balanced and paced, while at the same time musically highly insightful.”

EARLY MUSIC REVIEW

““Vols 1 and 2 of this series were warmly welcomed by David Threasher (5/20, 11/20): this is a superb follow-up… Page emphasises the Baroque nature of the piece with fiercely dotted rhythms, and hammers out the repeated notes of the fugue subject: absolutely gripping… The tightly controlled energy of the Presto finale is breathtaking… Ian Page and his orchestra are wonderful advocates for this powerful music.”

GRAMOPHONE

“Long may this series continue – Page is like a gold miner who continuously comes up with the goods.”

CLASSICAL EXPLORER

“This exceptional disc… will give much pleasure to many in general, and especially to those interested in discovering more about this period of transition between the baroque and classical eras. I unreservedly recommend not only this issue, but the whole cycle.”
