This month's new releases

The voice of Christopher Purves is akin to a force of nature, its range, scale and sheer magnificence verging on the incredible. And July's Record of the Month offers the perfect opportunity to experience this awe-inspiring instrument in full flow with a second volume of Handel's Finest Arias for Base Voice. Jonathan Cohen and Arcangelo accompany with all their customary distinction. Voices of an earlier age take flight under the direction of Robert Hollingworth with the all-male singers of De Profundis bringing us Missa Assumpsit Jesus & motets by Sebastián de Vivanco. This composer may now be rather less well known than his contemporary (and fellow choirboy at Ávila Cathedral) Tomás Luis de Victoria, but his music should not be overlooked by anyone with an interest in Renaissance polyphony.

Two important albums complete this month's Hyperion releases and feature three traditionalist composers from 19th- and 20th-century Mitteleuropa whose reluctance to adapt to the modernist trends of their times conspired to turn contemporary fame into posthumous neglect. Jonathan Plowright, whose affinity to this repertoire is well known, employs his formidable talents in the service of Piano Music by Josef Suk—four atmospheric suites brimming with potent Czech melody. While Simon Callaghan presents Piano Concertos by Rheinberger & Scholz, two composers who have long been prime candidates for admittance to the roster of Hyperion's Romantic Piano Concerto series. The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra accompanies, with the brilliant young conductor Ben Gernon making his label debut.

From Signum Classics we have a treasure regained: Telemann's Solo Fantasias for viola da gamba, dating from the 1730s and presumed forever lost until their chance rediscovery in 2015, are here performed by Richard Boothby in a revel of expressive virtuosity. The tango has a developmental lineage that can itself be traced back through centuries of tradition. In Tanguero – Music from South America Christoph Denoth tunes his classical guitar into this world of melancholy-tinged beauty.
