“With his commanding technique and unflagging sense of direction, coupled with exceptional self-discipline in matters of rubato, this French pianist plays with a classical authority always commanding respect …” wrote Gramophone of François-René Duchâble in Chopin. His approach was endorsed by none other than Arthur Rubinstein: the master pianist, whose name remains synonymous with the works of the Polish composer, became his great mentor. This 6-CD set represents a treasury of Chopin’s music, interpreted by a musician unafraid of challenging preconceptions.

“Love and charm are among the many qualities which distinguish this richly enjoyable set of the Tchaikovsky Symphonies,” wrote Gramophone of the cycle that forms the heart of this collection. Mstislav Rostropovich, like Tchaikovsky, represents the very soul of Russian music. Stepping down from the conductor’s podium, he returns to the cello for the Rococo Variations, the composer’s tribute to the spirit of the 18th century.

Gramophone judged Previn’s advocacy of the Symphony No. 2 “among his most enduring contributions to our musical life”.

“No conductor has yet surpassed him in conjuring up to sheer perfection the hidden beauties of Delius's scripts.” Those were the words of Eric Fenby, Delius’s aide and amanuensis, on Sir Thomas Beecham, a tireless and eloquent champion of the composer’s music. This wide-reaching collection extends from much-loved works closely identified with Beecham to more rarely-heard pieces that he only recorded once.

Vivaldi’s concertos – so irresistibly inventive and colourful – have become central to the world’s appreciation of Baroque music. In the composer’s own time his brilliantly innovative works created something of an international sensation, even exciting the admiration of Johann Sebastian Bach. Doing full justice to the Venetian master’s genius, Fabio Biondi and Europa Galante give performances of captivating virtuosity and immediacy.

Hungarian Quartet

The Hungarian Quartet, formed in 1935, embodied the very best of the Central European tradition of string-playing, and this cycle, recorded in Paris in the early 1950s, represents an essential staging post in the quest for Beethoven “These performances will give endless pleasure,” wrote Gramophone, “… the ensemble attack and technical proficiency of this quartet are beyond praise … and so is their grasp of the music.” These recordings have now been remastered from the original tapes in 24BIT-96kHz digital sound.

Artur Schnabel’s complete Beethoven Piano Sonatas, recorded between 1932 and 1938, constitute a monument of the catalogue. In 1937 Gramophone wrote: “To [his] technical mastery Schnabel adds and fuses an intensely intelligent, not merely ‘intellectual’ mind … The result is a perfectly blended interpretation of the music as a spiritual expression and as a musical organism.” Newly remastered from the original 78s, these legendary recordings can now be enjoyed in audio of unprecedented truthfulness and quality.

The works of Schubert are central to Elisabeth Leonskaja’s repertoire – and her interpretations of his work have been described as “essential”. Born in the Soviet Union, where her greatest mentor was Sviatoslav Richter, she moved in 1978 to Vienna. She has said that: “In Schubert, there are things that any average Viennese person will understand better than I do … I, though, have to think about them carefully. In Schubert, profound matters are expressed with a lightness of touch.”

“Simply to play Brahms one more time is not enough for me,” said Nikolaus Harnoncourt of these recordings, made in the late 1990s with the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and the pianist Rudolf Buchbinder. His research, which included detailed study of Brahms’ own scores and of performing traditions, led the conductor to draw a fascinating, apparently contradictory conclusion: “I deny that Brahms was a Romantic and, in the same breath, I describe him as the greatest Romantic.”

and excerpts from other cantatas


Nikolaus Harnoncourt’s interpretations of Bach cantatas formed a pillar of an ambitious project launched in the 1970s: the first complete recording on historical instruments of this magnificent canon of works. As early as 1954, Harnoncourt had written of the need “to hear and perform [Bach’s masterpieces] as if they had never been interpreted before”. Shortly after his death in 2016, Gramophone praised these recordings as “vivid explorations of marvellous music”.

Beethoven was Wilhelm Furtwängler’s guiding musical force. In his interpretations of the symphonies, the conductor generates irresistible dramatic momentum – and a constant sense of imaginative freshness – through the interrelationship of form, harmony, texture, rhythm and tempo. These recordings, all made in the late 1940s and early 1950s, in the Musikverein in Vienna and at concerts in London, Bayreuth and Stockholm, were newly remastered in 2010, bringing their sound more alive than ever before.

In 1835 Felix Mendelssohn became music director of the Gewandhaus Orchestra in his native city of Leipzig. 135 years later, Kurt Masur became the orchestra’s Kapellmeister, remaining in the post for 26 years, so there is an indisputable seal of authenticity on these interpretations of the complete Mendelssohn Symphonies. Joining them in this collection, and making it unparalleled in its scope, are the complete early String Symphonies; they are performed on period instruments – and without a conductor – by Concerto Köln.

Exuberant and prolific, Max Reger composed an extraordinary volume and variety of works in his short life – he was just 43 when he died in 1916. Reger saw himself as an heir to Brahms, Schumann, Beethoven and Bach, while also drawing inspiration from Wagner and Liszt. The energy, richness, rapture and contrapuntal invention of his art is celebrated in this 8-CD collection of works for orchestra, chamber ensemble, piano, organ, choir and solo voice.

This 6-CD collection focuses on eras central to their wide-ranging repertoire – the Renaissance and Early Baroque, with music from England, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Mexico. As the Guardian wrote of the Hilliard Ensemble’s farewell concert: “What came through consistently was how deeply entangled the four voices are, even while each singer retains his own individual tone. Blend and balance were instinctively, unerringly impeccable.”

These five splendid works for vocal soloists, chorus and orchestra were composed by Handel in the 1730s and 1740s. Treating both sacred and secular themes, they are inspired by the same dramatic genius that made Handel a master of opera. Conducting a dazzling array of soloists and Concentus Musicus Wien, the groundbreaking ensemble he established in the early 1950s, Nikolaus Harnoncourt unfolds their narratives with his customary flair, precision and immediacy.
