CD Notes

‘The booklet notes by Adrian Thomas, formerly head of music at Radio 3, are, as ever,
a work of art in their own right.’ – Michael McManus, The Gramophone (March 2013)


Among the companies for which I have written CD booklet notes are Argo, ASV, Chandos, Decca, EMI Classics, EMI Poland, Hyperion, Kontrapunkt, Landor, Naïve Classique, Nonesuch, Olympia and Warner Classics.  All the Polish CD notes have been moved to my other site,  Links to CD notes that include non-Polish music will remain here.

As with the PROG NOTES, these CD notes are offered as a resource to anyone interested in the music.  Repertoire is listed by composer and then chronologically.  If you wish to quote from any of the notes, please acknowledge the author and either the url or the record label + catalogue number.

If you are interested in commissioning CD booklet notes, please get in touch via the CONTACT tab above.
