All of Angela Hewitt's considerable authority is to the fore in Beethoven Piano Sonatas Op 14/1, 31/1, 49 & 81a, an album (the sixth in her ongoing survey) which includes the great 'Les adieux'. If the name of Bernardino de Ribera is less familiar than that of his great near-contemporary Alonso Lobo, his music is in no way inferior, as premiere recordings of the Ribera Magnificats & motets demonstrate. The all-male voices of De Profundis are directed by David Skinner.
In 2013 the London Symphony Orchestra and Valery Gergiev gave an extended series of concerts across Europe. Recorded live at the orchestra's Barbican home, a gripping rendition of Berlioz Roméo et Juliette now available from LSO Live was a major highlight, and features inspirational soloists Olga Borodina, Kenneth Tarver and Evgeny Nikitin.
