Brad Cohen, conductor

'A remarkable recording of the best bits of Rossini's comedy

Brad Cohen conducts superbly, bringing out the strength and expressive range of music that revels in the thrill of sexual confrontation and the speed and power of the vortex into which so-called civilised society can all too rapidly vanish. Back in the 1820s, English audiences were entertained by The Italian Girl and vaguely frightened by it. This remarkable performance tells you why.'
Richard Osborne, GRAMOPHONE, June 2009

new critical edition by Brad Cohen (published by Edition Peters)

'This deserves to fly off the shelves and out of the shopping websites.'
Hugh Canning, The Sunday Times, 7/9/2008

'The big selling point of this new recording is its use of a new critical edition by Brad Cohen, who is also the conductor of the project (and can be seen in the current BBC2 series Maestro)...Brad Cohen is fired up on the podium and draws incisive playing from the London Philharmonic.'
Dominic McHugh, musicalcriticism.com, 23/8/2008
