This month's new releases

Twenty years separate Steven Isserlis's new recordings of the Haydn Cello Concertos from his earlier versions on RCA and, fine as those undoubtedly were, Hyperion's release establishes a new benchmark for this marvellous music: a shoo-in for September's Record of the Month, and here enticingly coupled with a concerto by CPE Bach. Steven himself directs The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen. There's certainly no shortage of first-class string playing on offer this month. Mozart Violin Sonatas K303, 377, 378 & 403 is the next volume in the ongoing series—now nearing completion—by Alina Ibragimova and Cédric Tiberghien, who compare and contrast works by the child prodigy with those of his Viennese maturity.

Lieder have always constituted an important mainstay of the Hyperion catalogue. But there must always be room for more, especially in performances of the quality of Schubert Winterreise: a new recording from the established partnership of Florian Boesch and Roger Vignoles, who face down the inner torments of this darkest of song cycles. And finally, for those seeking something a little less Austro-Germanic, the Violin Concerto and Dance Suite by Erik Chisholm see the music of 'MacBartók' making a welcome reappearance on the label. The influences in this eclectic and rewarding programme range from Indian ragas to riotous Highland reels, and Matthew Trusler (making his Hyperion debut) and Danny Driver prove ideal soloists. The challenging accompaniments are in the safe hands of Martyn Brabbins and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

Robin Ticciati marks his exciting new tenure as Principal Conductor of the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin with a new album for Linn Records: Debussy La mer & Ariettes oubliées (the latter in a revelatory new orchestral version) and Fauré Pelléas et Mélisande make for a perfectly judged recording. The Complete Consort Music of Christopher Tye has captured the attention of award-winning viol group Phantasm—for whom the dizzyingly modernist challenges set by this maverick of the sixteenth century hold no terrors.

Kyrie – Poulenc, Kodály & Janáček is an ambitious new Signum Classics recording from St John's College Choir Cambridge, triumphantly tackling three of the most exalted—and treacherous—sacred works of the last century under the guidance of conductor Andrew Nethsingha. The Art of Dancing, the title work on an album subtitled '21st-century concertos for trumpet, piano and strings', gives the pioneering Simon Desbruslais his cue for an album of first recordings in the company of pianist Clare Hammond and the English String Orchestra.

A new album from the Dunedin Consort and Linn Records invariably presents an instant highlight of the year. Here John Butt and his musicians, bolstered by the searing virtuosity of His Majestys Sagbutts & Cornetts, revel in the sonic grandeur that is the Monteverdi Vespers, delivering a freshly modern take on this much-loved work.

In Handel at Vauxhall, Vol. 2 London Early Opera and Bridget Cunningham entertain us through the second half of an evening in the patriotic glow of that most successful of London's Pleasure Gardens.
