Eyvind ALNAES (1872-1932)
Symphony, Piano Concerto -
Hĺvard Gimse (piano)
Oslo PO/Elvind Aadland
rec. 2016 LAWO CLASSICS [GH] For any one searching for an Alnaes disc to add to their library, I can see no reason why this disc could not make a natural starting point.
RECORDING OF THE MONTH
Frederick DELIUS (1862-1934)
& Arnold BAX (1883-1953) Choral Music -
Carice Singers/George Parris
rec. 2016 NAXOS [RB] A stunning disc in every aspect.
Felix DRAESEKE (1835-1913) Quintets,
Scene for violin & piano -
Soloists Ens Berlin,
rec. 2009 CPO [SG] Music too good to miss.
César FRANCK (1822-1890)
Violin Sonata Gabriel FAURÉ (1845-1924)
Karol SZYMANOWSKI (1882-1937)
Notturno e Tarantella -
Tasmin Little (violin), Piers Lane (piano)
rec. 2016 CHANDOS [SB] I greatly enjoyed this recital.
Salomone ROSSI (c1570-c1630) The Songs of Solomon - Profeti della Quinta rec. 2008 PAN CLASSICS [JV] An interesting and enjoyable disc.
Georg Philipp TELEMANN (1681-1767)
The Collection rec. 1964-2002 WARNER CLASSICS
A Portrait rec. 1983-2013 RICERCAR [SSi] The question which of these box sets to go for is answered simply: both. Each of them offer a fine collection of Telemann’s music in excellent performances.
French Piano Concertos Works by Boulanger, Françaix, Poulenc, Ravel & Tailleferre - Florian Uhlig (piano)
Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Saarbrücken Kaiserslautern/Pablo González rec. 2015 SWR MUSIC [LW] A curate’s egg, but recommended to those who want these particular works.
Martin Luther and Music Bach-Chor Siegen, Johann Rosenmüller-Ens/Ulrich Stötzel rec. 2011 CPO [ST] The performances are good, but the historical documentation leaves much to be desired, so the disc can’t be wholeheartedly recommended.
Poems & Pictures
Works by Ravel, Schubert & Mussorgsky -
Leticia Gómez-Tagle (piano) ARS PRODUKTION SACD [GPJ] Thoughtful yet fully realised performances of two of the greatest and most challenging masterpieces for the piano, played by this brilliant Mexican artist.
Silence On Joue - Take 2 La Pieta/Angele Dubeau (violin) rec. 2016 ANALEKTA [BMC] An interesting collection of music taken from film scores, arranged for a string ensemble.
