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.
And finally, in celebration of Christopher Herrick's seventy-fifth birthday this month, we are honoured to present an Organ Fireworks World Tour: a musical Festschrift compiled from his series of outstanding Hyperion recordings over the last thirty years. An affectionate tribute to one of the world's great organists (and fourteen of its great organs).
For Linn Records, Thomas Søndergård has returned to the studio with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales to record Sibelius Symphonies Nos 1 & 6, the second in his already acclaimed cycle of these epic works.
The sensation that is Sunwook Kim thunders riches from the Hallé Orchestra into the family of labels available for download from Hyperion this month: crystal clear new studio recordings of the Brahms Piano Concertos made in the wake of a Leeds Piano Competition triumph. Click here for a full list of the Hallé treasures to be discovered.
Perfido! is a new album of concert arias from Signum Classics. The luminescent Sophie Bevan entices us into riches by Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven in the accomplished company of Ian Page and The Mozartists. Malcolm Martineau meanwhile curates his team of singers—including Ann Murray, Iestyn Davies and Sarah Connolly—through a langourously delightful second volume of The Complete Songs of Gabriel Fauré.
From LSO Live this month we have an opulent new rendition of the sublime Mozart Serenade for thirteen wind instruments, the LSO Wind Ensemble inhabiting the very soul of this most divine chip of earth-derived perfection.
