Sony Classical is delighted to announce the reissue of its recordings by Tafelmusik, the celebrated period-instrument orchestra. Originally released between 1989 and 1998, they are all being issued together for the first time in a single Sony Classical box set of 47 CDs.
Founded in 1979, the Toronto-based ensemble “has built in its special field a reputation as solid as those of the New York or Berlin philharmonics”, declared The Washington Post. The New York Times summed up Tafelmusik¹s achievements, writing that “beyond its impeccable discipline and luminous textures, the group displays an expressive sensibility that transcends the instruments, whether strung with gut or wire”. Some of the Canadian ensemble¹s many awards are the 1996 Echo Klassik (Germany’s highest recording accolade) for “Best Orchestra of the Year” as well as Canada’s JUNO, “Recording of the Month” in BBC Music Magazine, Gramophone Award nomination and “Editor’s Choice, and France¹s Diapason d’Or and CHOC de Monde de La Musique.
