Two contrasting albums of solo piano music complete this month's line-up from Hyperion. Beethoven Piano Sonatas Opp 2/1, 14/2, 53 & 54 is the next instalment in Angela Hewitt's distinguished cycle, now nearing completion. As usual, she juxtaposes lesser-known works with the exceptionally famous—here the 'Waldstein' which she designates 'one of my very favourite pieces to perform'. And Simon Callaghan has chosen for his first Hyperion solo recital a programme of Ein Liebesleben & other piano works by Jean Louis Nicodé. The composer's name may be unfamiliar but his brand of German late Romanticism is impossible to resist.
From Signum Classics this month we have Supersize Polyphony by Striggio & Tallis, which includes not just Ecce beatam lucem and Spem in alium (both for forty voice parts) but also the Italian's Missa sopra Ecco sì beato giorno with its sixty-voice Agnus Dei. Christopher Monks directs his Armonico Consort and Geoffrey Webber the Choir of Gonville and Caius College Cambridge.
