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.
A new cycle from the National Symphony Orchestra of the Kennedy Center, Washington DC, is inaugurated with Beethoven Symphonies Nos 1& 3. Gianandrea Noseda conducts these impressively taut performances, captured live for the orchestra's own label in January 2022.
St John's College Choir Cambridge and Director Andrew Nethsingha have put together a new album for Signum Classics: entitled The Psalms this presents thirteen of these pillars of contemplation from the Evensong tradition in performances which go so far beyond their apparent simplicity.
