Notes & Reviews:

"If Rossini's songs are the cake and the performers the icing, the recording itself is the unexpected cherry on top. The acoustic of Potton Hall in Suffolk immediately transports you to the intimate space of Rossini's salon, candles flickering, guests listening intently, adding a further dimension to this already wonderful disc." -BBC

'Rossini's writing for the piano is highly idiosyncratic. It requires a first-rate technique, a sure sense of style and an ability to bring off insouciance all manner of hair's-breadth effects. Mr Vignoles has the measure of all this and more' (Gramophone)

'Joyous music-making that is perfect for a summer's evening' (Daily Mail)

'Salon music at its most sophisticated and highly wrought. Gently elegiac bel canto arias jostle with popular dance rhythms, from a yodelling Tyrolean waltz to the snap and swagger of the bolero and fandango ... The three singers give virtually unalloyed pleasure' (Daily Telegraph)

'It's hard for any disc of Rossini's Paris salon songs not to speed by in a wink of delight. And it's impossible with Miah Persson's bright soprano and the sensitive accompaniments of Roger Vignoles' (The Times)

'Rossini's salon works are witty, charming, tuneful and downright silly, complete with florid vocal lines. Lovely performances' (Classic FM Magazine)

'All four musicians make a positive contribution to this charming, entertaining disc - a surprise venture into a still under-explored area of art-song by the ever-enterprising Hyperion' (International Record Review)

'There isn't a low point on the entire disc. Roger Vignoles plays with all his characteristic intelligence and subtlety. Miah Persson is enchanting in the opening La Promessa, and playfully dazzling in La Pastorella Dell'Alpi. Stella Doufexis' pure, rich voice gives perfect expression to L'orpheline Du Tyrol, and the two women's voices meld together magically when paired in duets such as La Pesca. Meanwhile, Bruce Ford is technically brilliant and dramatically engaging in the drinking song, L'orgia, and smoothly leads the mood from light to darkness with L'esule, the first of the Péchés De Vieillesse.If Rossini's songs are the cake and the performers the icing, the recording itself is the unexpected cherry on top. The acoustic of Potton Hall in Suffolk immediately transports you to the intimate space of Rossini's salon, candles flickering, guests listening intently, adding a further dimension to this already wonderful disc' (BBC Online)
