Arne Artaxerxes

Artaxerxes CD cover

…the more brilliant tone of Elizabeth Watts combines with her more vivid treatment of the words (try her first aria Fly, soft ideas) and the more forward recorded sound to make a stronger impression…Watts’s triumphant upper notes, while the ruthless virtuousity of her Monster away! carries all before it.

John Steane, Gramophone, April 2011


Brahms Requiem

Brahms German Requiem

“This… was big, slow and overwhelming. The choral singing was wonderfully intense, and soloists Elizabeth Watts and Stéphane Degout were both outstanding. The long silence at its close, which no one dared to fracture with applause, was testament to its impact. ”

– Tim Ashley, The Guardian
