Hyperion Records

September 2013 Releases
Angela Hewitt takes 'top billing' as Hyperion's Record of the Month for September 2013. Her programme of cherished Fauré Piano Music is enchanting. The full gamut of the piano repertoire is explored from very different angles by Howard Shelley in a sixty-first Romantic Piano Concerto Series volume, the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra enthusiastically romping alongside in wonderfully inconsequential works by Alexander Dreyschock and Theodor Döhler, and by Piers Lane who really Goes to town in a riot of his favourite encores, many of them antipodean—a showcase of both virtuosity and curiosity.

The Cardinall's Musick and Andrew Carwood have recorded a second volume in their Tallis Edition (the first, Gaude gloriosa, won a Gramophone Award in 2006). Tallis' Salve intemerata virgo is a work of grand stature, its Mass an unabashed masterpiece, and all the more so in these performances. Chloë Hanslip is joined by Igor Tchetuev (making his Hyperion debut) in a recital of Medtner Violin Sonatas, works the composer considered to be among his most significant and which blossom in the hands of such masterful players.

Two contrasting choral re-issues this month: the rollicking Langlais Messe solennelle from Westminster Cathedral Choir, and The Binchois Consort's haunting Dufay Missa Puisque je vis.
