Notes & Reviews:

Winner of the 2006 Kathleen Ferrier Award and the 2007 Cardiff Song Prize, soprano Elizabeth Watts makes her harmonia mundi début in a luminous programme of Bach cantatas and arias, deftly supported by The English Concert led by Harry Bicket.

“Elizabeth Watts is clearly one of the brightest new talents.” — THE INDEPENDENT

Gramophone Magazine
Watts's smouldering vocal approach to the text is deeply involving rather than merely lovely...Bicket's pacing allows the orchestral accompaniment to be both lively and detailed, and even if Watts's gutsy abandon might not cater for all tastes, her gleeful dialogue with Mark Bennett's meaty trumpet-playing in the finale [of Jauchzet Gott] has plenty of ballsy jubilation.

Classic FM Magazine
Elizabeth Watts, with her voice combining warmth and purity, is well suited to Bach's personal outpouring of both penitence and jubilation...[she] is on top form and the playing under Harry Bicket is equally fine.

International Record Review
This is a performance which mixes sumptuousness and refinement with impeccable poise and style...Bicket's approach is so gloriously relaxed and expansive that the music seems to float timelessly in the air like so much arresting perfume...I am now convinced that Watts is as authoritative and compelling a Bach soprano as you will find anywhere today.
