Album release: Schubert “Ins stille Land”

We’re thrilled to announce the release of “Ins stille Land”, our new Schubert album for PENTATONE, in November 2020. Following our multi-award-winning album “Aus der Ferne”, we continue our Schubert journey with another recording that explores the fascinating connections between his string quartets and lieder.

Album release: Tüür “Lost Prayers”

Also released in November 2020, we’re honoured to have been invited to appear on Erkki-Sven Tüür’s portrait CD for ECM, “Lost Prayers”. This is the first of the Estonian composer’s New Series recordings to be devoted entirely to his chamber music.

OPUS KLASSIK for “Aus der Ferne”

We’re thrilled and honoured to be awarded an OPUS KLASSIK 2019 for our Schubert disc “Aus der Ferne”.
