Ian Bostridge makes a welcome return to the label, recording an enticing programme of Brahms Songs with the attentive collaboration of series maestro Graham Johnson. Choral albums this month bring us the ceremonial of a nation from Westminster Abbey Choir, Onyx Brass and James O'Donnell with I was glad & other choral works by Parry, and Tallis Ave, Dei patris filia from Andrew Carwood and The Cardinall's Musick, both groups audibly relishing in their core repertory.
The Tallis Scholars are celebrating their 2,000th concert this month with a new double album showcasing a glorious selection of their work over the past three decades. Peter Phillips both conducts and has selected his personal favourites: Perfect Polyphony indeed.
Two new albums of Russian piano music feature this month. For Signum Classics the wonderful Alessio Bax has recorded a programme of Scriabin & Musorgsky (having at its heart Scriabin's Piano Sonata No 3 and the original piano-solo version of Pictures from an Exhibition). A live recording on the Mariinsky label presents Denis Matsuev in vibrant performances of Rachmaninov, Shchedrin & Stravinsky (respectively, Piano Concertos No 1, No 2, and the Capriccio); Valery Gergiev conducts the Mariinsky Orchestra.
For LSO Live Valery Gergiev again explores the core repertoire of his beloved Russia, here leading an explosive London Symphony Orchestra through Rachmaninov Symphony No 3 & Balakirev Russia. Under Antonio Pappano the orchestra has recorded Maxwell Davies & Panufnik Symphonies No 10. This first recording of the Maxwell Davies was originally released in 2014; it is now coupled with Panufnik's contribution to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra centenary celebrations in 1988.
