What The Critics Are Saying…

Panayiotis Demopoulos shows himself in this sharply contrasted recital to be an exceptionally sensitive artist. He is well recorded and has written some excellent accompanying notes.

The title of this exciting new album, ‘Sappho, Shropshire and Super-Tramp’, reflects three major threads of new English art-song. Spread over two discs, these 52 songs, some in cycles and some stand-alone items, make this a feast of new and fascinating work for the song lover.

A potpourri of fascinating music. Both Sarah Leonard and Johnny Herford bring considerable skill, magic and understanding to this music. The piano part is well-executed by Nigel Foster. This is an excellent exploration of (mainly) contemporary English art-song, and goes a long way to prove that the genre is alive and well in the early 21st century.

” —John France, MusicWeb International

As a lover of classical and symphonic music, it was a great pleasure to hear this disc for the first time. The two composers … have already found distinct voices, writing music that is both steeped in tradition and yet vibrant and alive. “a wonderful blending of the romantic, the modern and the post-modern. This album is a joy. It shows the future of symphonic music, and makes a strong case that its future is strong and healthy.
