March 2018 Releases

March's Record of the Month presents one of the incontestable peaks of Western music: a new recording of the Bach Mass in B minor can never be anything less than a very special addition to the catalogue, especially when artists of the calibre of Stephen Layton, Trinity College Choir Cambridge and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment are involved. Choral music of an earlier generation comes courtesy of another choir with which Hyperion enjoys a particularly close association: Missa Videte miraculum & Ave Maria, ancilla Trinitatis by Nicholas Ludford introduces to the label the music of a relatively neglected composer from early Tudor England. And there could be no more compelling introduction than that from Westminster Abbey Choir and James O'Donnell.

With Sir William Sterndale Bennett's Piano Concertos Nos 1-3, our Romantic Piano Concerto series reaches volume 74, Howard Shelley in his familiar dual role of pianist and conductor (and here accompanied by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra) returning to the music of this Yorkshire contemporary of Liszt and Wagner. Another essential purchase for pianophiles for this month, Garrick Ohlsson delivers a propulsive recital of Falla Fantasia Baetica & other piano music, including suites from El amor brujo and El sombrero de tres picos. Much of this will be familiar in orchestral guise, and it is no less exciting encompassed by just ten fingers.
