Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Three stunning—and contrasting— new recordings for June 2013, and as Hyperion Record of the Month we have the Complete Stravinsky for piano and orchestra. Steven Osborne is dazzling as soloist; Ilan Volkov conducts the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in this repertoire he has made his own.

Blazing fireworks too from Westminster Cathedral Choir and London Brass in a programme built around James MacMillan's Tu es Petrus and other choral spectaculars written for occasions of grand ceremony; Martin Baker braves the onslaught to conduct. The London Haydn Quartet has recorded the six Haydn Op 33 String Quartets, a fourth release in their acclaimed cycle and again striving for matchless authenticity, this time with the help of the 1782 Schmitt edition.

Re-issues see the return of delightful Tchaikovsky and Arensky from The Raphael Ensemble, and St George's Chapel Choir Windsor in their pioneering recording of Tavener Sacred Music from 1990.
