Goldsmith Grammy

The quality of the recording work undertaken by World of Brass producer Adam Goldsmith is well known in the banding world, but it has now also been recognised by critics in the classical music world too.

Adam was the producer on the 2022 Grammy nominated album recorded by the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloist of Bach's 'St John's Passion' conducted by John Eliot Gardner.

Produced on the prestigious Deutsche Grammophon label, it was recorded at Oxford's Sheldonian Theatre released in March and given a 5 star review by the influential Backtrack website who called it "an Easter miracle from Oxford".
