Orpheus With His Lute

Variations for Brass Band

Royal College of Music Brass Band


Vaughan Williams’s London Symphony (the composer’s favourite of the nine) makes a rare appearance in its 1920 first publication. Three lesser-known works complete a highly desirable programme, while Martyn Brabbins and the BBC Symphony Orchestra understand how this music should be played like few others. This is mandatory listening.

The Romantic Piano Concerto 73 - Sacheverell Coke

The Romantic Piano Concerto 73 - Sacheverell Coke


Sacheverell Coke:

Piano Concerto No. 3 in E flat major. Op. 30

Piano Concerto No. 4 in C sharp minor, Op. 38

Piano Concerto No. 5 in D minor, Op. 57


The late Romanticism of Roger Sacheverell Coke will appeal to anyone who enjoys Rachmaninov or Delius, Grainger or Scriabin. If that sounds an intriguingly eclectic mix, Coke establishes his own distinctive voice, and this is an important addition to the Romantic Piano Concerto series.

Chopin: Préludes, Piano Sonata No. 2 & Scherzo No. 2

Chopin: Préludes, Piano Sonata No. 2 & Scherzo No. 2


Chopin:

Preludes (24), Op. 28

Piano Sonata No. 2 in B flat minor, Op. 35 'Marche funèbre'

Scherzo No. 2 in B flat minor, Op. 31


Repertoire which has been central to the lives of most pianists for over a hundred and fifty years will always present a formidable challenge; happily, Cédric Tiberghien’s account of some of Chopin’s greatest and most popular works need fear nothing by way of comparison to the famous recordings of the past.

Dvorak: String Quartet & String Quintet

Dvorak: String Quartet & String Quintet


Dvorak:

String Quintet No. 3 in E flat major, Op. 97 'American'

Lawrence Power (viola)

String Quartet No. 14 in A flat major, Op. 105 (B193)


A new release from the Takács Quartet is guaranteed to be a highlight of the musical year, and this one easily exceeds all expectations. The ‘American’ quintet dates from Dvořák’s sojourn in the New World, the quartet from his return to old-world Prague; both are marvellous works, sounding here every bit the masterpieces they undoubtedly are.

After the success of Angela Hewitt’s first album of Scarlatti sonatas, it is a joy to announce the appearance of a second. As Angela herself writes of this new selection, many fresh to her repertoire, this is ‘appealing, unique, dazzling’ music—performed here with the greatest of panache.

Debussy: Piano Music


Debussy:

Masques

D'un cahier d'esquisses

L'isle joyeuse

Images pour piano - Books 1 & 2

Estampes (3) (Complete)

Children's Corner


Steven Osborne’s unerring command of the elusive ambiguities of Debussy’s piano-writing has already been amply confirmed by his earlier recording of the two books of Préludes; these lustrous new accounts of the Images, Estampes and Children’s Corner are every bit their equal.

“here Osborne’s phrasing and pacing is pure and poetic, as well as raptly atmospheric in ‘The Snow is Dancing’ and it finishes with a deliciously louche cake-walk.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2017 ****

An album of music for the connoisseur—of extraordinary singing as much as of the English Baroque. This wonderful recital ranges widely across Blow’s vocal and instrumental music, Arcangelo again demonstrating their versatility in repertoire which will be a real discovery for many.

Haydn & CPE Bach: Cello Concertos

Haydn & CPE Bach: Cello Concertos


Bach, C P E:

Cello Concerto No. 3 in A major, Wq. 172 (H439)

Boccherini:

Cello Concerto No. 7 in G major, G 480: Adagio

Haydn:

Cello Concerto No. 1 in C major, Hob. VIIb:1

Cello Concerto No. 2 in D major, Hob. VIIb:2 (Op. 101)

Mozart:

Geme la tortorella (from La finta giardiniera)

arr. for cello by Steven Isserlis


If the two Haydn concertos are the most accomplished contributions to the cello’s burgeoning repertoire written in the eighteenth century, the CPE Bach coupling is scarcely less fine. Two charmingly rococo encores complete this latest essential release from Steven Isserlis.

“This recording is a real tonic. I defy anyone not to smile at Steven Isserlis’s effervescent readings of Haydn’s graceful and urbane cello concertos...He spins an exquisitely light and agile line, maintaining a delightfully sunny disposition, even in each concerto’s adagio...The Bremen players add just the right degree of elegance and poise to make this a CD to treasure.” The Observer, 10th September 2017 *****

“His partnership with the brilliant Bremen orchestra is a musical marriage made in heaven.” Sunday Times, 10th September 2017

“These interpretations sing of an artist still thoroughly in tune with his prevoius thoughts, but who is keen to develop those ideas further. He's supported every step of the way in this pursuit by the warmly responsive Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen...Isserlis's 1998 recording [of the Haydn] remains classy stuff, but this has superbly trumped it.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2017

Mozart: Violin Sonatas Volume 4

Mozart: Violin Sonatas Volume 4


Mozart:

Violin Sonata No. 26 in B flat major, K378

Violin Sonata No. 11 in Eb major, KV26

Violin Sonata No. 13 in C, K28

Violin Sonata No. 8 in F major, K13

Violin Sonata No. 20 in C major, K303

Six Variations in G minor on 'Hélas, j'ai perdu mon amant', K360

Violin Sonata No. 3 in B flat major, K8

Violin Sonata No. 25 in F major, K377

Violin Sonata No. 30 in C major, K403

arr. Maximilian Stadler


This is a series which continues to redefine the standards by which these works should be performed. As before, the music spans most of Mozart’s life, from 1763—when he was just seven years old—to 1782, and (another) unfinished present written for his new wife Constanze.

“Performers and engineers alike have made sure that the one instrument doesn’t swamp or outshine the other, and that neither is unduly spotlit. It all sounds and feels utterly natural...The whole enterprise is near-impossible to fault. Six sonatas left now to complete the cycle, a set that will surely become the modern reference recording.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2017
