This month's new releases

An astonishing account of The Rite of Spring lies at the heart of Stravinsky Music for two pianos four hands; the clinical savagery conjured by Leif Ove Andsnes and Marc-André Hamelin, no less, in the composer's own transmogrification of his seminal work makes for an absolutely extraordinary Record of the Month for February. There's also plenty of bite in three Bach Magnificats: father Johann Sebastian's setting is of course a pillar of the repertoire, but those by his sons Carl Philipp Emanuel and Johann Christian are scarcely less worthy of attention, especially given such energized performances as these from Jonathan Cohen and Arcangelo.

Debussy Songs – 4 is the final instalment in Hyperion's critically acclaimed series. Malcolm Martineau both accompanies and curates this most exquisite of envois, as he has throughout; here, the lion's share is taken by Lucy Crowe's lustrous soprano, with contributions from Christopher Maltman and Jennifer France. Completing a trio of distinguished vocal releases this month, David Hill and the Yale Schola Cantorum follow up the success of their recent Fauré release, demonstrating their versatility by proving themselves equally at home in Palestrina Missa Confitebor tibi Domine & other works.
