Notes and Editorial Reviews

Robin Ticciati cemented his reputation as an outstanding Berliozian with this 2013 recording, Berlioz: Les nuits d’été, which includes excerpts from Roméo & Juliette and La mort de Cléopâtre. Ticciati delivers fresh insights and vivid colours into this luminous work showing similar flair to that of his teachers Sir Simon Rattle and the great Berliozian Sir Colin Davis. The recording features Kathleen Ferrier prize-winning mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill, who has sung at the Metropolitan Opera, New York and won acclaim as Cléopâtre, a role she reprises here: ‘Cargill’s Cléopâtre gives even Dame Janet a run for her money...a real revelation’ (Limelight Magazine). The works of Berlioz Read more have featured prominently in Ticciati’s programmes with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra since he was appointed Principal Conductor in 2009 earning critical acclaim. This recording was nominated for a 2014 ICMA Award and topped Kate Molleson’s ‘2013 Classical Top 10’ list in The Herald. Read less
