Each week, PARMA has the pleasure of not only releasing powerful works by our artists, but also seeing the positive impact that these works have on listeners. Read on for a selection of what the press had to say about the latest releases from Navona Records.


“This album is, quite simply put, a real surprise. Not just for the fine playing of Inna Faliks or her imaginative programming, but for the quality of the nine new works that reimagine collectively the two pianistic classics at the heart of the programme”

Gramophone on Inna Falik’s REIMAGINE: BEETHOVEN & RAVEL.

WORDS ADORNED - The Crossing - Album Cover

“All goes wonderfully well in this program. I do not hesitate to recommend it to you highly. It will give you a musically astute extension of traditional Andalusian song into the present and future of Modern Classical.”

SYMPHONIES NO. 4 & 5 - John Robertson - Album Cover

“It is a remarkable work, a symphony that blends the lighthearted and the serious in a way that brings to mind the music of Malcolm Arnold… Truly, this is a work that deserves wider exposure, not only as a recording, but in the concert hall.”
