Notes and Editorial Reviews

A Choice Collection / Held by the Ears" is an energetic, foot-tapping collection of diverse music made popular in Purcell's London. Featuring "the fastest recorder playing you've ever heard" (BBC Music Magazine) and the winner of another Diapason d'Or award. An essential series of early music from Venice, Leipzig, Versailles and London, played to perfection by topclass musicians, presented in stylish, glossy digipacks at a special price. The Palladian Ensemble (originally Rachel Podger, Pamela Thorby, Joanna Levine and William Carter) was a double-award winning group even before they released their first album, and made their Wigmore Hall debut in 1993. Gamba player Susanne Heinrich and the prize-winning violinist Rodolfo Read more Richter replaced Joanna Levine and Rachel Podger, but the Palladian Ensemble continued to tour extensively internationally enjoying consistent popularity with audiences and critics. The Palladian Ensemble were five times winners of the prestigious Diapason d'Or Award, (1993, 1994, 1998, 1999 and 2000) and twice had albums named Gramophone 'Editor's Choice'. Read less
