May 2011 Releases

Hyperion's Record of the Month for May 2011 is the final recording from the internationally renowned Florestan Trio: the core programme of the two Shostakovich Piano Trios is suitably impassioned, and is complemented by the rarely heard Blok Songs, wondrously performed by Susan Gritton. A third recording from the Dante Quartet presents the highly charged String Quartets by Smetana and Sibelius in performances of compelling power.

Frank Martin's opera Der Sturm has never been recorded before. This live performance by the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic under Thierry Fischer, with Robert Holl as Prospero and Christine Buffle as Miranda, offers at last an opportunity for this unique masterpiece to re-assert its deserved place in the repertory.

Florian Boesch makes his Hyperion debut with Roger Vignoles in an ebullient recital of Ballads & Songs by Carl Loewe, revealing a lot more than the 'other' Erlkönig, and the wonderful all-male voices of Cinquecento uncover the complete surviving works of Philipp Schoendorff, along with his two Mass models and a Magnificat by Philippe de Monte (the cover picture is a vegetable-based portrait of the two composers' employer, the Habsburg Rudolf II).

Three Helios re-issues this month: Bruckner and Strauss chamber music from The Raphael Ensemble, a much-neglected recital of Haydn Songs (Bernarda Fink, Lisa Milne, John Mark Ainsley and Roger Vignoles), and the first in a series of Victoria Masses from Westminster Cathedral.
