JEAN SIBELIUS
Sibelius: Kullervo
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra / Thomas Dausgaard
[ Hyperion / CD - released 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...

Angela Hewitt (piano)
[ Hyperion / CD - released 31/May/2019 ]

[ Hyperion / CD - released 31/May/2019 ]

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...

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.
