Steinberg: Passion Week a Recording of the Year!
MusicWeb International has released their 2015 Recordings of the Year, and we’re happy to report that our Maximilian Steinberg: Passion Week recording has been named a Recording of the Year by two MusicWeb critics!
“One of the big choral rediscoveries of recent years combined with a stunning performance and recording, Steinberg’s sublime and eloquently moving Passion Week is a work to which I’ve returned again and again this year.” —Dominy Clements
“This was my discovery of the year. Passion Week consists of settings for unaccompanied choir of hymns from the Orthodox services of Holy Week. The sheer beauty of Steinberg’s music makes a great impression and the work is wonderfully served by the excellent performance from Alexander Lingas and his expert singers. Passion Week is one of the finest and most moving Orthodox settings that I’ve encountered and I was excited by getting to know it.” —John Quinn
