September 2012 Releases

The Hyperion feast that is September 2012 starts with pudding: the 'sort of musical dessert trolley' that is Stephen Hough's French Album encompasses Ravel, Fauré, Poulenc, Chabrier and more and makes for an irresistible Record of the Month.

The Romantic Violin Concerto series reaches Volume 13 and finds Anthony Marwood on sparkling fire in the two Schumann Concertos, Douglas Boyd conducting the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Very different violinistic delights come from Tanja Becker-Bender and reveal the Respighi Violin Sonatas to be worth every exploratory penny. Péter Nagy makes his Hyperion debut at the piano. Further pleasant surprises come from the keyboard of Howard Shelley, his new recording of Spohr & Onslow Piano Sonatas proving a worthy complement to his epic Clementi series.

Contrasting vocal recordings welcome back the warm baritone of Robert Holl in a fourth volume of Graham Johnson's wonderful Brahms Songs cycle, and see John Potter, Christopher O'Gorman and Rogers Covey-Crump in Conductus, the first in a tripartite mini-series peering into the music and poetry of thirteenth-century France.

Newly re-issued this month are the BBC SSO's pioneering recording of Chabrier's Briséïs, and the Suk Piano Quartet & Quintet from The Nash Ensemble.
