Pine, Carmignola, Il Pomo d'Oro make Gramophone 'best new classical albums for February 2019'

Editor Martin Cullingford's pick of the finest recordings from this month's reviews includes; ‘Blues Dialogues' from Rachel Barton Pine with Matthew Hagle on Cedille, JS Bach Solo Violin Sonatas and Partitas from Giuliano Carmignola, and 'Handel Serse with  Il Pomo d'Oro / Maxim Emelyanychev with countertenor Franco Fagioli.

Violinist Rachel Barton Pine brings a compelling and completely convincing power and soul – not to mention virtuosity – to this fascinating programme. 

What an extradinary master of his instrument violinist Giuliano Carmignola is – the range of colour, of imagination, and of emotion makes this a Bach solo set to savour.

Fresh from last year's Editor's Choice-winning Handel album – and just as fresh-voiced – countertenor Franco Fagioli triumphantly leads the cast in a superb set of the composer's opera Serse.
