“das von Maxim Emelyanychev geleitete Ensemble Il Pomo d’Oro (bestätigt) mit seinem Temperament bei gleichzeitiger Spielkultur einmal mehr seinen Ruf als aktuell beglückendstes Barockopern-Orchester“

Bach Cembalo Concertos

Hay un buen punado de registros de estas obras (conciertos para clave de Bach) que pueden considerarse referencias. Desde este momento Il Pomo d’Oro y Francesco Corti ocupan por derecho propio un sitio de honor en él.

Facce d'Amore

The charming, elegant, boldly ornamented playing of Il Pomo d’Oro under Emelanychev offers the kind of precise playing that this type of music demands.

Veni Vidi Vinci

“Lo primero que seduce en los primeros compases es el sonido cristalino, pero eléctrico, de un Pomo d’Oro inmaculado, atento, flexible y lleno, exudando brío y fuego, ora la suavidad de una cuna.”

„Das Alte-Musik-Ensemble Il Pomo d’Oro (macht) auch hier, mit seiner mächtig Pulverdampf verbreitenden Gangart einmal mehr seinem Ruf als das aktuell vielleicht aufregendste Barockteam alle Ehre.“

Bach Violin Concertos

The degree of exquisitely joyful listening has (…) completely bowled me over (…) What really makes this recording one to treasure is the degree of uncontrived personality and artistry on display (…) Have I sold it enough? I hope so. Because really, this is properly heavenly.

Serse in London 2018

„A Serse like no other from Maxim Emelyanychev and il pomo d’oro“
Their inspirational conductor, Maxim Emelyanychev, is a man on springs: he directs from the keyboard with almost manic intensity (…) the result is truly exciting; the strings and continuo crisp and percussive as a snare-drum, the woodwind mellifluous, jaunty and precise. (…) A „triumphant performance (…)“

Serse in London 2018

„What made the performance special was the livewire conducting and harpsichord playing of the remarkable young Russian Maxim Emelyanychev, (…) as he cajoled edge-of-your-seat and beautifully expressive playing from his brilliant band.“

The Times
