Ivanovich BAGDASARIAN (1922-1987) 24 Preludes, Rhapsody - Mikael Ayrapetyan (piano)
Vladimir Sergeev (violin) rec. 2012 GRAND
PIANO [SA] An
altogether fascinating introduction to a composer
who deserves a great deal more exposure.
CHOPIN (1810-1849) Piano Concertos
- Nikolai Lugansky (piano) Sinfonia Varsovia/Alexander
Vedernikov rec. 2013 AMBROISIE [ST] Lugansky’s
playing and the orchestra’s muscular vision
deserve to win it some friends.
DVOŘÁK (1841-1904) Symphony
8, Legends - Bournemouth SO/José Serebrier rec.
2014 WARNER CLASSICS [GPJ] A delightful
coupling, superbly performed by the Bournemouth
players in this latest instalment of Serebrier’s
HINDEMITH (1895-1963) Nobilissima
Visione, Five Pieces - Seattle SO/Gerard Schwarz
rec. 2011 NAXOS [NB] Overall, an interesting
addition to the Hindemith discography.

Karine Deshayes (mezzo) Ens Initium/Clément
Mao-Takacs rec. 2013-2014 TIMPANI [HC] A lovely
disc, if ever there was one.

Gustav Mahler Ens. Tonkünstler O Niederösterreich/Andrés
Orozco-Estrada rec. 2013 HARMONIA MUNDI [MC] Top
drawer results from an experienced and unfailing
Mahler performer but it’s not the best
place for Mahler novices to start.
SULLIVAN (1842-1900) On Shore and Sea,
Kenilworth - The John
Powell Singers, O Victorian Opera NW/Richard
Bonynge rec. 2013 DUTTON [RB] Dutton's
first Sullivan immersion ... very enjoyable.

excellent, core salute to Annie Fischer and
her musical legacy.
