'This new disc on Resonus finds the composer and ensemble in perfect synchrony, with first-rate solo turns and authoritative leadership from conductor/violinist Thomas Kemp'
'Committed performances from Chamber Domaine, definitely an ensemble from whom much can be expected, under the incisive leadership of Thomas Kemp, who also provides the informative contextual notes.'
"The Chamber Domaine ... under the inspired direction of ... Thomas Kemp, makes us appreciate Sibelius more intimately than ever"
"This very fine work devoted to the music of Jean Sibelius takes the perfectly calculated risk of departing from the totemic masterpieces of the Finnish master. The result is profound, faithful and unforgettable."
ResMusica, Feb 2019
"Thomas Kemp created a perfect balance of sound in a soulful interpretation”
“The string section threw themselves into a frenzied rhythm with masterful, precise conducting from Thomas Kemp”
“There was a seamless collaboratipn between the soloist and orchestra under the baton of Thomas Kemp”
Cosi fan tutte was conducted with real shape and nuance by Thomas Kemp...Altogether this was the most original and idiomatic attempt on this ungraspable work London has seen in a long time.
…superb sound, superb artistry too with pungent playing from Chamber Domaine conducted by Thomas Kemp.
He directs highly persuasive performances... drawing precise, elegant playing that's high on expressivity.
...an extraordinary performance... with a fluency that came over brilliantly under the baton of Thomas Kemp.
Thomas Kemp conducting the City of London Sinfonia gives the singers sensitive support, while keeping the score and the action racing ahead to its dark and uneasy conclusion
