This month's new releases

What more appropriate Record of the Month could there be for Heine's 'wondrous month of May' than a magical programme of Schumann Davidsbündlertänze, Humoreske & Blumenstück? Especially in the hands of Honens Prize Laureate Luca Buratto, here making his Hyperion debut in repertoire which demonstrates his complete affinity with the composer. Posterity has been less than kind to Carl Czerny, whose name—and extraordinarily eclectic output—has invariably been overshadowed by the innumerable piano studies for which he is now (in)famous. That there was so much more to him is ably demonstrated by Howard Shelley and the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra with Czerny Piano Concertos, volume 71 of our Romantic Piano Concerto series.

Jonathan Cohen and the vocal and chamber forces of Arcangelo are our expert guides through the heavenly Champs-Élysées of early eighteenth-century France in Couperin L'Apothéose de Lully & Leçons de ténèbres; the sweetest of sorrows rendered in music of exquisite beauty. Journeying back another two centuries, the all-male voices of Cinquecento revisit the music of a sixteenth-century Flemish master in Guyot Te Deum laudamus & other sacred music, the ensemble's fusion of scholarship and performance again bringing the unfamiliar into sharp relief.

An affectionate tribute to one of the world's great organists (and fourteen of its great organs).
