In all that Amemptos does, it aims to produce something unique - a little bit different from what has gone before.
Our first, internationally successful CD, “Words of Comfort, Music of Peace” achieved this aim by the very fact that such a project had never before been realised.
Our second CD, “350 Years of Organ Masterworks”, containing a unique programme of some of the greatest organ works ever composed, was released in December 2007 and has already received much acclaim from all who love to hear "the king of instruments" - as well as a stunning review from international concert organist Roger Fisher.
Our third CD, released towards the end of November 2008, contains 23 tracks of new choral music, never or very rarely performed before. Resulting from a process that took nearly two years, the CD will delight all lovers of great music and contains many gems of stunningly lovely works.
Our fourth CD features the most wonderful, rarely heard piano music by Ukrainian genius Sergei Bortkiewicz, played on Rachmaninov's own piano by the young virtuoso Lloyd Buck.
Our fifth CD was a venture into the world of Folk Music, and resulted in a live "in situ" recording of a great variety of instrumental and vocal music from Britain and Ireland.
Our sixth project was a recording of a selection of piano music by Charles Alkan, including hitherto unrecorded works and a "straight take" chance recording of the phenomenal "Scherzo Focoso"... !
Our seventh was the outstanding organ CD with Tom Winpenny at St Albans playing Liszt and Reubke.
More details of all our recordings are provided on the "CDs" page, which we invite you to look at: simply click the link on the left.
Being small and independent, Amemptos has the luxury, above all, of time: time to think, time to plan, time to discuss, time to try things out without accountants breathing down our necks! – and time to get things right. We'll do our best to make sure that all our future recordings are unique and special - and of the highest musical quality.
Details of forthcoming projects are found on the "Future Projects" page - see links on left.
