LATEST RELEASES

MONDONVILLE: TRIO SONATAS OP. 2

ENSEMBLE DIDEROT

World premiere recording

"Fine works demonstrating even better playing by the Ensemble Diderot. Both fiddles play with persuasive mastery, but the finest moments arrive with the ravishing transverse flute playing of Kristen Huebner."

AUDIOPHILE AUDITION

"The Ensemble Diderot plays these works with nimble expertise and good spirit"

GRAMOPHONE

"Devoted, profound, virtuosic. This recording is yet another impressive proof that the Diderots are THE ensemble for baroque chamber music."

MDR FIGARO

MONTANARI VIOLIN CONCERTOS

J. PRAMSOHLER - ENSEMBLE DIDEROT

World premiere recording

"musically outstanding and eminently collectable"

ON AN OVERGROWN PATH

 

"crystal clear textures and with an inner drama that will keep you guessing." EARLY MUSIC REVIEW

 

"These are performances of terrific flair and abandon."

BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE (Concerto choice of the month)

 

"The clean, lyrical virtuosity from Johannes Pramsohler is of the kind that begs you to simply sit back and soak it all up. Diderot’s one-to-a-part readings on original instruments are truly superb. If only all newly discovered Baroque works sang and fizzed like those in this collection do."

GRAMOPHONE (Editor's choice)

BAROCCO

THE CREATIVE DOODLE BOOK FOR MUSICAL KIDS

 

"Typically it is a smart independent label that has spotted the market opportunity. When independent thinkers lead, establishment dinosaurs follow."

MEISTER: IL GIARDINO DEL PIACERE

ENSEMBLE DIDEROT

World premiere recording

"This is classy, fulsome, engagingly urbane playing. And as befits an ensemble named after the French 'philosophe', pre-eminently thoughtful too."

BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE (Chamber choice of the month)

"The Ensemble Diderot resembles Musica Antiqua Köln in the way in which they combine an elegant performance style with liveliness, warm tonal brilliance and razor-sharp definition. This disc is an absolute winner." GRAMOPHONE

 

"toe-tappingly catchy" THE TIMES

 

"impressive virtuosity and extraordinary sound quality" 

EARLY MUSIC REVIEW

 

"The Ensemble Diderot’s polished and stylish playing, rhythmic freedom and flawless ensemble show these delightful works in the best possible light."
