October 2022 Releases

The welcome opportunity to hear some lesser-known RVW has been a regular bonus of the ongoing cycle from Martyn Brabbins and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, and this next instalment is no exception. In Vaughan Williams Symphonies Nos 6 & 8, magisterial performances of the two symphonic masterworks are framed by a selection of miniatures—a rare outing for England, my England (a choral work from World War II) and three folk-song settings for chorus and orchestra. October's Record of the Month is a major release for the composer's 150th anniversary year, and one which should not be missed. If 'Clair de lune' is much the most familiar work in a programme of Early and late piano pieces by Debussy, the rest of the recital is no less rewarding. Steven Osborne has long since proved his affinity with the music of the French master, and this album devoted to shorter works from either end of the composer's creative life is a worthy successor to the previous two.

Telemann's Fantasias for solo violin are the ideal choice for anybody who has ever been left in open-mouthed astonishment by Alina Ibragimova's solo Bach recordings on Hyperion—which is surely everyone who has ever listened to these remarkable accounts—and wondered what to explore next. They are works which amply justify the high repute in which Telemann was held in eighteenth-century Hamburg, and can seldom have sounded so compelling.

Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra bring us Bruckner's Symphony No 4. Named the 'Romantic' in the composer's own hand, the work is deservedly one of the most popular in the cycle, and this new LSO Live set includes fascinating alternative versions which trace some of the composer's tortuous passage to the definitive score we know today.
