October 2018 Releases

Behold the sea itself: the thrilling call to arms which launches Vaughan Williams's A Sea Symphony rings out spectacularly in Hyperion's new recording from Martyn Brabbins, Elizabeth Llewellyn, Marcus Farnsworth and the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. All rise magnificently to the challenges of this epic work; an outstanding Record of the Month for October. Vocal textures—and existential musings—of a very different stamp are to be had in Machaut The gentle physician, the sixth instalment in The Orlando Consort's ongoing survey. The fourteenth-century composer-poet can seldom have known such committed performances, the music brought into sharp relief across seven intervening centuries.

Any new recording from Steven Isserlis is an event and this apposite pairing of the Chopin Cello and Schubert Arpeggione Sonatas does not disappoint, the timbres of Dénes Várjon's mid-nineteenth-century Érard piano adding to the attractions of a highly desirable release. The Romantic Piano Concerto reaches volume 77 with Bronsart and Urspruch Piano Concertos, two splendid works from the series' nineteenth-century Austro-German heartlands featuring the brilliant young pianist Emmanuel Despax. Both he and Eugene Tzigane, who conducts the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, make their Hyperion debuts. And how better to celebrate Leslie Howard's seventieth birthday year than with Liszt New Discoveries – 4? This is a fascinating supplement to Hyperion's comprehensive Liszt project—the hundredth CD, no less—and will be an essential purchase for anyone who has followed this remarkable musician's heroic exertions in the composer's service.
