Amy Dixon recordings

An exclusive recording artist for Sony Music, Dickson has now released two critically acclaimed recordings on the RCA Red Seal label. Her first, Smile, was released in 2008, and led Ivan March of Gramophone magazine to write:
She has an individual and unusual tone, luscious, silky-smooth, sultry and voluptuous by turns; her phrasing is beautifully finished, her control of dynamic infinitely subtle.

Her second album, Glass, Tavener, Nyman, comprises of the Violin Concerto by Philip Glass and The Protecting Veil by John Tavener, both arranged by Dickson, and Where the Bee Dances by Michael Nyman.
