The radiant textures of Jaakko Mäntyjärvi's Choral Music exert a powerful and immediate appeal, the contemporary Finnish composer's musical language a distinctive fusion of ancient and modern. His extensive Evensong setting evolved with performances by Stephen Layton and Trinity College Choir Cambridge in mind and the results are outstanding, as only to be expected in recordings from this source. And with volume 10 of The Complete Songs of Johannes Brahms an important Hyperion series comes to an end. Mezzo-soprano Sophie Rennert joins Graham Johnson in a recital spanning four decades of Brahms's creative life, from his debut as a Lieder composer in 1853 to a selection of the German folksongs published in his final years.
A new recording from LSO Live brings us Janáček The cunning little vixen & Sinfonietta, the former recorded live during semi-staged performances at the Barbican in 2019. The outstanding cast includes Lucy Crowe, Gerald Finley and Sophia Burgos, and Sir Simon Rattle draws from this charming and melodious score an enthusiastic response from his London Symphony Orchestra forces.
On Signum Classics, the Philharmonia Orchestra makes its first recording with Principal Conductor Designate Santtu-Matias Rouvali. The programme of excerpts from Tchaikovsky Swan Lake well serves to remind how richly this work deserves its place as a staple of the ballet repertoire. And Elizabeth Sombart completes her cycle of Beethoven Piano Concertos with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Pierre Vallet, here performing the mighty No 5 alongside the popular 'Triple' Concerto with orchestra principals Duncan Riddell and Richard Harwood.
Newly restored to its place in the treasured family of Collegium recordings is A banquet of voices – Music for multiple choirs. John Rutter conducts The Cambridge Singers in a sumptuous programme with the dazzling Tallis 40-part motet as its centrepiece. Also included are Allegri's Miserere and the most magnificent of Bach's six motets, Singet dem Herrn ein neues Lied.
