This month's new releases

Hyperion welcomes 2018 with Debussy Piano Music, Stephen Hough's distinguished hommage to this most revolutionary of French composers in the centenary of his death. This matchless recital comprises some of his most important and original works, including both books of 'Images', 'Estampes' and 'Children's Corner', and is a self-recommending Record of the Month for January. A rather different (if equally tantalizing) prospect comes courtesy of Martyn Brabbins and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, who deliver incendiary accounts of Tippett Symphonies Nos 1 & 2; the first instalment in a complete cycle of these still seriously underrated works. This is an indispensable release for any lover of twentieth-century orchestral music.

Journeying five and a half centuries back in time, Obrecht's Missa Grecorum & motets is an exploration of the music of—in his day—one of the most widely admired composers to have emerged from the Low Countries. Stephen Rice and The Brabant Ensemble are our authoritative guides. While Pixis Piano Trios offer the perfect tonic to dispel midwinter blues: anyone who imagines chamber music to be unyielding stern stuff shouldn't miss another delightful release from the Leonore Piano Trio, who again lavish their customary attention and affection on a neglected corner of the repertory.

For Signum Classics the Royal Northern Sinfonia has recorded Dreamsongs & other concertos by Aaron Jay Kernis; these major additions to the repertoire are conducted by Rebecca Miller. Great Cathedral Anthems is a sequence of choir-stall favourites through the ages: David Newsholme directs The Girls and Men of Canterbury Cathedral Choir. Pianist James Rhodes has recorded Fire On All Sides, a personal expression of the cathartic power of music with works by Bach, Beethoven, Chopin and Rachmaninov. Midnight at St Etienne du Mont offers celebrated organist Joseph Nolan the opportunity to follow the fingers and feet of Maurice Duruflé in a programme including an important new tribute by David Briggs.
