AH artists win Presto Classical Discs of the Year 2015



We are delighted to announce that six Askonas Holt artists are involved in four of the recordings selected for Presto Classical’s top 10 discs of the year. 
From 100 finalists, the team at Presto Classical have selected their 10 favourite releases, including:
Alina Ibragimova, Arcangelo & Jonathan Cohen: ‘JS Bach: Violin Concertos
“[Ibragimova’s] musical comfort zone seems to know no bounds”
Andreas Ottensamer: ‘Brahms: The Hungarian Connection
“The result is so breathtakingly virtuosic that I laughed out loud the first time I heard it”
Sir Simon Rattle, Kate Royal & London Symphony Orchestra: ‘Schumann: Das Paradies und die Peri
“[the work] is brought to life by the LSO and a starry line-up of soloists under his baton, making the best possible case for Schumann’s oratorio”
Ludovic Tézier (with Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia & Antonia Pappano): ‘Verdi: Aida
“The cast really couldn’t be bettered today”
