NEW RELEASE FROM MERIDIAN RECORDS
 
 

MERIDIAN RECORDS are the original experts in ‘natural sound recording’. In 1977, at a dinner party, our founders presented their vision for an independent classical label that would reproduce the concert-hall experience as closely as possible with using just 2 microphones. 42 years on we hold a clutch of industry awards, including the honour of being the first independent label to win a GRAMOPHONE award, and we continue to astound listeners and artists with our stylish and captivating recordings using our revered ‘natural sound’ technique.

ALFREDO PIATTI
The Operatic Fantasies vol. 2

Adrian Bradbury - Cello
Oliver Davies - Piano

Bradbury is wholly alive to these touches of colour and character as is Oliver Davies (who made the piano reductions of several of the works recorded here). His interpretations have a red-blooded, horsehair-and-rosin quality that gives them the immediacy of a live performance, nicely capturing the physical thrill of Piatti's often spectacular fireworks as well as the wholly fitting bel canto warmth of Bradbury's more lyrical playing.

Richard Bratby - Gramphone
