We are delighted to share with you that our recordings of Messiaen – Catalogue d’oiseaux and PENTATONE OXINGALE SERIES ”Isang Yun – Sunrise Falling have been listed in the Sunday Times Top 100 Albums of 2018 both in the category of All Genres and  Best Contemporary!

Messiaen – Catalogue d’oiseaux with Pierre-Laurent Aimard: 

An extraordinary undertaking: Messiaen sought not only to transcribe birdsong with scientific accuracy, but to make each representation a tone poem evoking birds and their habitats. He all but reinvented music to do it.

PENTATONE OXINGALE SERIES ”Isang Yun – Sunrise Falling with Matt Haimovitz, Dennis Russell Davies, Yumi Hwang-Williams, Maki Namekawa and the Bruckner Orchester Linz

This two-disc box showcases the unjustifiably little-known South Korean-born composer (1917-95), whose passion for reunification had harrowing consequences for him.[Check out the album here:]
