Bach:Organ Music/Barbara Harbach

“Thanks so much for the beautifully engineered and produced CD of our recent Lyric Chamber Music Society concert. It’s not only wonderful to listen to, but it’s beautiful to look at as well.”

Michael Parloff, Principal Flute,
Metropolitan Opera Orchestra

 “I just listened to the CD, which arrived today and I am ecstatic. I can’t imagine a better show. The sound is so good…”

Paul Reale

 “The recording quality handles the combination of string instrument and organ with such balance and clarity that it makes you wonder why more composers don’t try this interesting genre.”

Barbara Harbach

 “I just finished listening to the final edit. It’s sensational! This recording has taught me how to listen to records. The sound you have captured is so perfect and life-like that I’m able to return to the exact space where I was, and find myself reacting in exactly the same way I was reacting to the real sound, as I was playing in the Academy. So every interpretive decision and dynamic nuance sounds exactly as I conceived it right then and there, and that’s what I hear again as I reproduce it … I know of no better piano sound on a record!.. You are truly a master! The sound is absolutely ravishing.”

Alberto Reyes

 “this could well be the stand-out Palestrina CD of recent times. In short, if you only have one Palestrina disc, this should be it, and if you already have several dozen, you need to add this to your collection. It really is a marvellous display of intelligent and perceptive music-making.”

 “Biernacki wraps his pulsating baritone around Szymanowski’s urgent expressivity to keen dramatic effect… he treats each language with purpose and intensity. Baron is an exemplary partner, providing a fine sense of sweep and balances that allow voice and piano to interact as ardent conversationalists.”

Zina Schiff
Concert Violinist

 “Thank you for the remarkable job you did recording Phil and me. I’m astonished at how well you integrated my voice with Phil’s music. You managed to bring both elements to the fore without making it seem too busy or conflicted. It’s really something–better than I could have imagined. “

J.D. Scrimgeour, poet

 “We are absolutely thrilled with the results of Daria’s debut CD, due in no small part to your magical skills in the recording process.”

Art Simet

your ability to make us laugh when we got frustrated or tense.  You’re the best!”

Michelle Stebleton
Associate Professor of Horn

 “Recorded at Christ and St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in New York (where Potts is organist), using the newly installed 15-stop Schoenstein & Co. organ, the sound on the recording is warm, vivid, and affecting.”

 “McCallum plays a German Steinway and the sonics are exceptionally realistic and wide range. There is a reference to a special technology used in the recording… the final result is a cut above many other piano CDs.”

Patrick Taylor
Director of Choirs
Greenwich High School

 “I loved the way you worked with the space as well as the balance you achieved between orchestra and choir. You did the Baroque sound proud!”

Nelva TeBrake
Baroque Violin Soloist

 … This recording is a highly polished, exactingly faceted, sparkling gem, combining the choir’s outstanding, transcendent performance, Palestrina’s renowned compositional genius and MSR’s absolutely clear, balanced and splendid recording and production… The recording of the Palestrina mass is among the finest recordings I have ever heard. I was stunned by it.”

 “I could heap superlatives on this CD, but in the end it must be heard to appreciate Delaplain and Kashiwagi’s wonderful performance. The recording itself is of outstanding quality, accurately capturing the sounds of the oboe and piano to provide the experience of a live performance on a quality stereo system.”

 “I am emailing to congratulate you and your choir on a superb recording of music by Manchicourt… in my opinion you and your choir do him ample justice. Thank you for an hour of wonderful music, beautifully recorded, and excellently sung.”

Choir of St. Luke in the Fields/Shuler
MSR Classics

 “[This recording] is stunning. For a start, the programming is sensible and illuminating, underscored by some outstanding sleevenotes…
The mixed professional choir sings two to a part. The acoustic is generous. David Shuler adjusts his tempi sensitively in relation to the number of voices in play and whether the music at a given point is polyphonic or homophonic, complicated or straightforward. The individual singers give their lines clarity but blend well. And finally, conductor and choristers perform with conviction, letting Manchicourt’s heavenly music sing for itself… buy this disc with confidence – not least because these fine performers deserve support for recording this glorious repertory.”

 “The sound, recorded at the fabled Troy Savings Bank Music Hall, is magical.”

Laurence Vittes

(Giannini: Chamber Music, MSR Classics)

 “This radiant new Palestrina recital from the Greenwich Village-based Choir of St Luke in the Fields commands tonal beauty and emotional flow that has a personal feel…The warm, spacious recordings – made not at St Luke’s in the West Village but at the Church of St Mary the Virgin in midtown Manhattan – provide an audiophile display of Palestrina’s vivid writing. The blending of the voices halfway through Tu es Petrus is quite astonishing…the microphones capture the women with an especially lovely bloom.”

Laurence Vittes, The Gramophone

 “stands out from the crowd for Henry Dehlinger’s exquisite piano playing, the opportunity to hear Turina’s Tres Arias, and the gorgeous MSR Classics recording… Talamantes shines radiantly, as if the composer had been writing specifically for her voice…it becomes one of those audiophile experiences where every sound is captured in detail so naturally placed within its acoustic environment that it can serve as a touchstone for capturing musical excellence.”

Laurence Vittes, The Gramophone
(Danielle Talamantes & Henry Dehlinger Canciones Espanolas, MSR Classics)

 “I cannot thank you enough for being such an inspiration to us during our recording session. Many musicians don’t seem to realize that working with a professional producer in the studio can make a huge difference for them, affecting their performance in positive way, making the whole experience more challenging, yet – more liberating.

There were many beautiful and “magical” moments during performance, and I am so glad that those moments had found their way into the final mix. It seems that both felt a certain freedom during the recording session, and the resulting interpretation of songs became sensitive and expressive. I think that the three of us left after the session that day with a clear realization that we had worked with a great producer.”

Max Vladimiroff

 “Thank you so much for making the recording process so enjoyable, for helping to keep it focused, and for your professional guidance and very positive energy. “

Nadejda Vlaeva

 “You really brought the sound quality to a higher level. I love it! “

Meira Warshauer

 “Thank you so much for everything you have done throughout the process. You have been so professional, on-the-ball, and helpful. I really enjoyed it!”

Kara Kirkendoll Welch

In Sure and Certain Hope has come out extremely well, and I am so grateful for your expert and patient guidance with the whole project. It is already selling like hotcakes, and people are most impressed.”

Nicholas White,

 “Thanks for your technical expertise and spot-on musicianship “

Judith Lang Zaimont

 “…the sound is spectacular and congratulations. I always had trouble listening to this album because the sound did not reflect the way the group sounded live and you and Richard have corrected that….it truly is a “tour de force”!! …can’t tell you how thrilled I am. The sound is great….Magic !!!!”

“Just got the mastered “Too Marvelous” album and listening to it now and wow Richard did a great job !  It is nice and warm and it transports me back to 52nd street during the “golden age of Jazz” and I am very pleased…”
