When Bojan Čičić and The Illyria Consort’s debut recording was released last week, it went straight to No. 5 in the Specialist Classical Chart. ‘These performances are eloquent, engaging and really nicely ornamented. It’s one of my favourite discoveries this week’, said Andrew McGregor on Record Review. ‘Taut and elegant … Čičić makes even the high-wire showy stuff sing with a lyricism that is shapely, aerated and totally unforced’, echoed the Guardian. Add to that Five star reviews from Classical Music magazine and Norman Lebrecht, and a Disc of the Week accolade from Presto Classical – Carbonelli has captured the hearts of the public.
