Two PENTATONE Releases Awarded as Best Albums of 2023 by Native DSD Music!

We are ecstatic to see two of our PENTATONE releases selected for the Best Albums of 2023 by Native DSD Music!

Folk Songs (Magdalena Kozena, Czech Philharmonic, Sir Simon Rattle)

“‘Folk Songs’ with collections by Bartok, Berio, Ravel, and Montsalvatge. Magdalena Kozena’s mezzo soprano seems perfect for these songs. Sir Simon’s accompaniment is excellent. The Pentatone recording is excellent.”

Bartók: Concerto for Orchestra (Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, Karina Canellakis)

“Karina Canellakis is a rising star in the rarefied world of conductors, and she conducts an excellent Bartok Concerto for Orchestra, and his Four Orchestral Pieces. She gets below the surface of this music and brings it home.”
