Collected press from Ioannides’ debut CD

The Royal Philharmonic and its conductor, the young Sarah Ioannides, provide energetic and rapt accompaniment, if that is even the word for these complex works. – Steven Ritter, Audiofile Audition, April 18, 2008

[…] under the light Sarah Ioannides’ baton, directing a very fine Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. – Michael Bailey, All about Jazz, May 23, 2008

In all the works, the excitement of St. John’s style and the colour of the Royal Philharmonic under Sarah Ioannides are nicely captured (in London) by Martha de Francisco of McGill University – Arthur Kaptainis, Montreal Gazette, April 10, 2008

A word should be said here about the fine playing of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of the Anglo-Australian conductor Sarah Ioannides. The group sounds excellent, and the CD itself, issued by St. John’s own Ancalagon label, is a lovely piece of production. – Greg Stepanich, May 4 2008 , Palm Beach Post

What startles and delights me as I’ve been listening to all three albums is the imagination and all-star teams on each project. St. John’s CD with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Sarah Ioannides, is being called World Premieres. – James Reaney, London Free Press, May 29 2008
