JEAN SIBELIUS
Sibelius: Kullervo
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra / Thomas Dausgaard
[ Hyperion / CD - due 28/Jun/2019 ]
While 'Kullervo' represents just the confident first step in Sibelius's symphonic odyssey, it is also a viscerally exciting experience on its own terms- little wonder the first performance in 1892 was such a triumph for the young composer. An...

Cramer: Piano Concertos Nos 4 & 5
Howard Shelley, London Mozart Players / Howard Shelley
[ Hyperion / CD - due 28/Jun/2019 ]
Listening to these fluent, expressive performances, it's difficult to see how even Cramer-one of the great virtuosos of his day-could have matched the effortless mastery so characteristic of Howard Shelley's pianism.

Parry: Piano Trio No 2 & Piano Quartet
Leonore Piano Trio
[ Hyperion / CD - due 28/Jun/2019 ]
After a successful rehearsal of his piano quartet in 1879, Parry declared that he was 'wild with delight'. He could have been no less enthusiastic on hearing this dynamic account from the Leonore Piano Trio with violist Rachel Roberts.

LEOS JANACEK
Janácek: The diary of one who disappeared & other works
Nicky Spence (tenor), Julius Drake (piano)
[ Hyperion / CD - due 28/Jun/2019 ]
Like many of Janácek's late masterpieces, the genesis of the 'Diary' is unseparable from its composer's intense, obsessional love for Kamila Stösslová. A song-cycle like no other, here it's the main work in a recital which showcases the extraordinary...

Beethoven: Piano Sonatas Opp 2/1, 14/2, 53 & 54
Angela Hewitt (piano)
[ Hyperion / CD - released 31/May/2019 ]
"As you might expect, her way with the fingery textures of the first movement [of the Waldstein] is dexterous and effortless, while the repeated left-hand chords have a crispness about them." Gramophone

VARIOUS COMPOSERS
Music for Saint Katherine of Alexandria
The Binchois Consort / Andrew Kirkman
[ Hyperion / CD - released 31/May/2019 ]
Admirers of Andrew Kirkman and The Binchois Consort will know what to expect of this group's recordings: not only carefully crafted programmes delivered with idiomatic flair (both of which may be taken for granted), but also lavishly illustrated...

Lassen / Scharwenka / Langgaard: The Romantic Violin Concerto
Linus Roth (violin), BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra / Antony Hermus
[ Hyperion Romantic Violin Concerto Vol 22 / CD - released 31/May/2019 ]
"Roth plays with almost missionary zeal, he and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, under Antony Hermus, making a convincing case for these works to be more widely performed." The Observer

JEAN LOUIS NICODE
Nicodé: Ein Liebesleben & other piano works
Simon Callaghan (piano)
[ Hyperion / CD - released 31/May/2019 ]
Felix Draeseke's description of Nicodé as 'more a moderate progressive than a cacophonist' - in contrast to his younger contemporary Richard Strauss - may have been intended as a compliment, but doesn't begin to do justice to this profoundly...

Dufay: Lament for Constantinople & other songs
The Orlando Consort
[ Hyperion / CD - released 3/May/2019 ]
"The Orlandos are so experienced in this repertory that, nearly always, the choice of tempo and tone is spot-on which maximises the music's communicative potential" Gramophone Editor's Choice May 2019

LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN
Beethoven: Piano Sonatas Opp 109, 110 & 111
Steven Osborne (piano)
[ Hyperion / CD - released 3/May/2019 ]
Beethoven's three final sonatas constitute one of music's great spiritual journeys, one which only a very few pianists are qualified to undertake. Steven Osborne, whose Beethoven has been widely acclaimed, need fear no comparisons.

Saint-Saëns: Symphony No 2, Danse macabre & Urbs Roma
Utah Symphony / Thierry Fischer
[ Hyperion / CD - released 3/May/2019 ]

Bairstow, Harris & Stanford: Choral works
Westminster Abbey Choir / James O'Donnell, Peter Holder
[ Hyperion / CD - released 3/May/2019 ]
Three composers whose contributions to the Anglican choral tradition are rich in historical significance: no less than the Abbey itself, much of this music is inseparably bound up with the national celebrations or commemorations appropriate to war,...

JOHN TAVENER
Tavener: Angels & other choral works
Winchester Cathedral Choir, Andrew Lumsden (conductor)
[ Hyperion / CD - released 10/Apr/2019 ]
Sir John Tavener loved Winchester Cathedral. I think it fair to say that it became one of his spiritual homes, and, as this album triumphantly shows, the cathedral and its choir under Andrew Lumsden are clearly ideal for his music. From 1972 until...

Bach: The Cello Suites
Alban Gerhardt (cello)
[ Hyperion / 2 CD - released 29/Mar/2019 ]
Those elusive qualities of 'transcendental beauty paired with an enchanting simplicity', eloquently glossed by Alban Gerhardt in his booklet note, might also be said to characterize his playing in this outstanding new recording.

Howard Shelley (piano & conductor) / Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra
[ Hyperion Romantic Piano Concertos Vol 78 / CD - released 29/Mar/2019 ]
No fewer than four composers vie for attention in volume 78 of the Romantic Piano Concerto. There's only one official piano concerto here, but it's a remarkable work from a composer in her mid-teens.

SIR EDWARD ELGAR
Elgar: Caractacus
Huddersfield Choral Society, Orchestra of Opera North, Martyn Brabbins (conductor)
[ Hyperion / 2 CD - released 29/Mar/2019 ]
The centuries do indeed 'roll away' as the libretto addresses questions of empire - Roman and Victorian - and Britain's place in the world. But that shouldn't detract from the music; this is simply glorious and worthy of the mature Elgar.

Alina Ibragimova (violin), Cédric Tiberghien (piano)
[ Hyperion / CD - released 1/Mar/2019 ]
"Superb playing and ravishing engineering intertwine here to stunning effect. It's a modern set-up - Ibragimova on a 1775 Anselmo Bellosio strung with metal, with Tiberghien on a very beautiful and relatively new Steinway D" Gramophone

Bach: Cantatas Nos 106 & 182
Amici Voices
[ Hyperion / CD - released 1/Mar/2019 ]
Bach may only have been in his early twenties when he wrote it, but Cantata No 106 (the 'Actus tragicus') is a profound contemplation of things final; the motet 'Komm, Jesu, komm' occupies similar eschatalogical territory. This is an...

[ Hyperion / 2 CD - released 1/Mar/2019 ]
The first opportunity to experience Tippett's unique symphonic voice stretching across nearly half a century, from the early B flat symphony (here receiving its first recording) to the extraordinary 'birth-to-death' span encompassed by No 4.
