November 2013 Releases

Hyperion's worthy Record of the Month for November 2013 is a thrilling new recording of the Bach Christmas Oratorio, one of the pinnacles of the repertoire. Stephen Layton conducts the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Trinity College Choir Cambridge, and the sparkling soloists are led by Evangelist James Gilchrist.

One hundred years since his birth, the three Britten String Quartets have been enthrallingly recorded by the Takács Quartet. The four Hindemith Violin Sonatas, performed by established duo Tanja Becker-Bender and Péter Nagy, and the three Hindemith Piano Sonatas, their every effervescent note captured to perfection by Markus Becker, mark fifty years since their composer's death.

Marc-André Hamelin has recorded a triple album of Late Busoni Piano Music—all the Sonatinas, the Elegies, the Toccata and much more. And Romantic Piano Concerto series devotees will revel in Roberto Prosseda's The complete Gounod works for pedal piano & orchestra (the pedal piano, here two Steinway Ds and an ingenious pedal-board coupling mechanism, opening up a whole new array of textural possibilities); Howard Shelley and the Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana provide spirited competition. Re-issued in November are Westminster Cathedral Choir's sublime Palestrina Missa Dum complerentur and a wonderful Schubert Octet from The Gaudier Ensemble.

This month also brings a warm welcome to The Tallis Scholars, Peter Phillips and their label Gimell whose recordings are now available through the Hyperion website; a brand new recording of the Taverner Missa Gloria tibi Trinitas celebrates the fortieth anniversary of this most illustrious of ensembles.
