Recordings

These are the recordings and albums I’ve been involved with as a musician. I also engineered and edited some of them. Ones I’ve worked on only as a producer and engineer, and not as a musician, are on this page.

With Passacaglia

Boismortier Suites and Sonatas CD image
‘I fell in love with this disc at first hearing, seduced by Passacaglia’s senusous mix of recorders, gamba, chamber organ and harpsichord. There are so many good things to savour.’
Andrew Stewart, Classic FM Magazine – 5/5 stars


Telemann Chamber Music BCR002
harpsichord (+ remastering, design)
Telemann Chamber Music CD image
‘This is my disc of the month. From the opening phrase to the end of the disc I was enthralled. … You won’t hear any better playing.’
Brian Clark, Early Music Review

Early Music Review


Dornel: La Triomphante Naxos 8.570986
harpsichord, organ (+ engineering, editing)
La Triomphante CD image
‘The quality of music on this CD turns out to be extraordinarily high, in no way inferior to the chamber works of Couperin and Rameau. Characterful, expressive playing from Passacaglia certainly does the music justice. The wonderful Swedish virtuoso Dan Laurin joins the group in two works; here he plays among equals. Another Naxos bargain.’

Telemann:Time:Travel BCR006
harpsichord (+ engineering, editing, design)
Telemann Time Travel CD image
‘The best historically informed performances and recordings recreate the spirit as well as the sound of the music and, in ‘Telemann:Time:Travel’, the now well-established group Passacaglia do just that, combining the two to make a performance of irrepressible joy. … Annabel Knight’s phosphorescent top line teases out Telemann’s rhythmic and melodic jokes, idiosyncrasies and brainteasers with such effortless energy…’

Gordon Jacob: Recorder Chamber Music
Annabel Knight, Maggini Quartet, Fontanella
harpsichord, piano, (+ production in the works I wasn’t playing in!, engineering, editing)
Naxos 8.572364
Gordon Jacob CD image
Annabel Knight is an exemplary soloist, with smooth tone and breath support, fine legato, and nimble technique. She is ably supported at every turn by Robin Bigwood at the keyboards, the Maggini Quartet, and the Fontanella recorder ensemble. The recorded sound—crisp, clear, and a touch on the dry side—and program notes are up to typical fine Naxos standards. Fellow recorder enthusiasts should waste no time in scooping up this release.
