BENJAMIN BAKER, VIOLIN AND
DANIEL LEBHARDT, PIANO
1919: Coda (Delphian Records)
“The playing is marvellously poised, an exemplary concept album aptly adapted to each composer’s circumstances and individuality. Baker and Lebhardt tell four very human stories, each of them flawed. I was on the edge of my seat throughout.”
5 Stars – Norman Lebrecht, La Scena Musicale
“Baker and Lebhardt, who listen and respond to each other precisely and sensitively, are ideal and impassioned guides” – Fiona Maddocks, The Guardian
“Three excellent sonatas played with passion and understanding here, making for a compelling recital. It puts us into the sound of Europe emerging into a different world” – Record Review, BBC Radio 3
Ben and Daniel came to Concerts in the West in May as members of the Northern Chords Ensemble.
