Testimonials

"I spent a very enjoyable few days at the end of 2013 recording Daniel Jones and Bartók for Tŷ Cerdd. Their record label makes a highly valuable contribution to Welsh music by drawing our attention to obscure repertoire and they are extremely nice people to work with as well!"

- Llŷr Williams, Pianist (Outstanding Young Artist Award from MIDEM Classique and the International Artist Managers' Association)

"Working to a tight schedule, as we were on Under Milk Wood, can be a tetchy experience. But during the sessions the engineers and producer at Tŷ Cerdd were unflustered and surmounted all obstacles with a professional calm. Even more impressive was that the end result sounded fluent, balanced and considered and served John Metcalf's new work in exactly the way Tŷ Cerdd set out to do."

- Wyn Davies, Director of Music, New Zealand Opera

"Tŷ Cerdd represents excellent value for money, with a professional and friendly working environment and a great sound on the final product."

- David Cowley, Principal Oboe, BBC NOW

" The task of recording an opera, especially a new one, to disc is a challenging one. At every stage of a complex process involving, in this case, a wide variety of sound sources I, as composer, and all involved in the production of Under Milk Wood : an Opera have been incredibly well served by all the personnel at Tŷ Cerdd. At the launch of the CD at Opera America in NY and subsequently I have received universally positive feedback about the CD and I am happy to put on record my grateful thanks for this valuable legacy of the first production"

- John Metcalf, Composer

"The Lunar Saxophone Quartet recorded and mixed their 'These Visions' album at Tŷ Cerdd during 2010 for the Signum Classics label. The quality of the recording was highly praised in reviews across the UK and this is testimony to the expertise and efforts of studio engineer James Clarke. The LSQ would be delighted to record further projects at Tŷ Cerdd and can't thank them enough for capturing the sound of their quartet in such a live, natural and open sounding way."

- Joel Garthwaite, Group Director, Lunar Saxophone Quartet

years. It is a fab studio; friendly, professional and efficient."

- Charlie Barber, Composer, Sound Affairs

"Tŷ Cerdd is special. My ideas have been beautifully looked after and my first solo album put together with great care and profound attention to detail. The atmosphere is relaxing and fun which really encourages creativity. In their careful hands my songs breathed and found their feet. My music was not just recorded by quality sound engineers, it was nurtured by two excellent composer musicians who know exactly how to let your music fly."

-Stacey Blythe, Singer songwriter
