Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, April 2012
The final duet-cum-chorale [of BWV49] is irresistable, with its alluring buoyancy heightened by Suzuki's natural, unforced direction...Robin Blaze is on particularly fine form...Suzuki never courts the visceral edge of John Eliot Gardiner, but he has a flawless integrity, the glorious SACD sound adding a halo of its own.

Gramophone Magazine, May 2012
Hana Blazikova delivers a clarion brightness...very much in the elegant Collegium Bach Japan vein: luminosity and purity of sentiment prevailing above an overlaid or projected personality...rugged fervour and brilliance spring off the page here. Another memorable release.

International Record Review, March 2012
Blazikova hardly needs any help from a microphone - the ringing purity of her tone audibly cuts through the choral texture and her solos glint with concentrated tone. She's perhaps too white and glassy for some, but I love it, and she always avoids that glacial dispassion to which some other ultra-focused sopranos succumb...As always, Suzuki fields a strong solo team....Robin Blaze brings his usual elegance and instinctive phrasing.

MusicWeb International, March 2012
Displaying impeccable teamwork the players give these splendid Beethoven scores with a spring in the step and a sparkle in the eye yet they also draw deep to achieve a remarkable gravitas to set alongside an abundance of spirit in these assured and tasteful performances. This marvellous BIS disc was a delight from start to finish.
