Artists & Release & Rezension | CD of the Month: Maureen Forrester

audite's 3 CD box with historical recordings of the Canadian altist Maureen Forrester was selected in the current issue of Opernwelt as CD of the month. In the review it says: "Forrester had a real alto of unusual abundance and ability to expand, which she could manage with almost perfect technique. [...] Forrester's lively, impassioned performance and her talent to "paint" with her voice - supported by Hertha Klust's pointed accompaniment - make the miniatures [...] small jewellery"
We are very appreciated about this award!

​DIE ZEIT - one of the important national German newspapers - published its Christmas recommendations on November 24th. In the category "Secret tip" Wolfram Goertz lists today's audite release Amadeus Quartet Vol. 5 "Romanticism". His statement: The Amadeus Quartet was so to speak the "mother soil" in which everything thrived; the artists set standards for the interpretation of Brahms, Schumann and others.
We agree and are thus particularly happy about this recommendation!
