Alfredo CASELLA (1883-1947) Symphony 1, Concerto for strings, piano, timpani and percussion Desiree Scuccuglia (piano) Antonio Ceravolo (percussion) Roma SO/Francesco La Vecchia rec. 2008/9 NAXOS 8.572413 [66:22] [JW]

Two sides to Casella: striving and romance-hungry and terse and increasingly astringent.

Alfredo CASELLA (1883-1947) Symphony 2, Scarlattiana Martin Roscoe (piano) BBC PO/Gianandrea Noseda rec. 2009/10 CHANDOS CHAN10605 [76:58] [DM]

Is this flac worth the extra hassle and expense? Emphatically, yes.

Mario CASTELNUOVO-TEDESCO (1895-1968) Shakespeare Overtures - Vol. 1 West Australian SO/Andrew Penny rec. 1994, NAXOS ITALIAN CLASSICS 8.572500 [65:07] [DM]

The music itself is unremarkable, although I do wonder whether a better band would bring more life and sparkle to these pieces.

Qigang CHEN (b.1951) Wu Xing: Five Elements see MAHLER

Chopin Celebration Frédéric CHOPIN (1810-1849) Piano concertos 1 & 2, Grande valses, Valses Marek Drewnowski (piano) Polish National RSO of Katowice/Antoni Wit NVC ARTS 5051865 710622 [112:20] [RMay]

For anyone who enjoys spending an evening at their neighbours’ house looking at slide shows of the latest holiday.

RECORDING OF THE MONTH Luigi CHERUBINI (1760–1842) Requiem Schola Gregoriana Tübingen, Kammerchor Stuttgart, Hofkapelle Stuttgart/Frieder Bernius rec. 2010 CARUS 83.227 [42:12] [MC]

A superb achievement for Frieder Bernius and Carus.

Fryderyk CHOPIN (1810-1849) Polonaise see BEETHOVEN

Edward Elzear ‘Zez’ CONFREY (1895-1971) Piano Music Mordecai Shehori (piano) rec. 2009 CEMBAL D’AMOUR CD147 [76:51] [JW]

Sensitive and authoritative. Brio and charm predominate but deeper feelings are also on show.

Arnold COOKE (1906-2005) Chamber Music Piano Sonatas 1 & 2, Three Songs of Innocence, Flute Quartet, Nocturnes Raphael Terroni (piano) Melanie Lodge (soprano) Jonathan Jaggard (horn) Patrick Williams (flute) Warren Zielinski (violin) Morgan Goff (viola) Justin Pearson (cello) Lorraine Schulman (clarinet) rec. 2008 DUTTON CDLX7247 [76:32] [JW]

Cooke emerges as a vitalising chamber composer. And how pleasing to get the piano sonatas after so long a wait. 

Ronald CORP (b. 1951) Songs Mark Stone (baritone) Simon Lepper (piano) rec. 2010 STONE RECORDS 5060192780031 [73:20] [GHu]

There are thirty-nine songs on this disc and it is a tribute to all involved that interest very seldom wanes. More please.

William CROFT (1678-1727) Keyboard Music Colin Booth (harpsichord) rec. 1998 SOUNDBOARD SBCD 991 [63:44] [JV]

Colin Booth has done Croft's music a great favour with these fine performances.

Alvin CURRAN (b.1938) Solo Works - The 1970s: Songs and Views from the Magnetic Garden, Light Flowers Dark Flowers, Canti Illuminati I & II, The Works rec. 1974-82 NEW WORLD RECORDS 80713-2 [3 CDs: 49:56 + 78:02 + 64:25] [DC]

Valuable and influential - the bonus is these are nice to listen to as well. 

Alvin CURRAN (b.1938) Maritime Rites rec. 1985 NEW WORLD RECORDS 806252 [76:15 + 65:19] [DC]

Remarkable and stimulating. 

Michael DAUGHERTY (b.1954) Ladder to the Moon see Wolf Rounds

Claude DEBUSSY (1862-1918) Cello sonata see Cello Rhapsody

Claude DEBUSSY (1862-1918) Suite pour Violoncelle et Orchestre see reVISIONS

Claude DEBUSSY (1862-1918) Violin Sonata see Nadien

RECORDING OF THE MONTH Gaetano DONIZETTI (1797–1848) L’Elisir d’amore Maria Bayo, Rolando Villazon, SO & Ch Gran Teatre del Liceu/Daniele Callegari, rec. 2005 VIRGIN CLASSICS 2672779 [152:00] [GF]

So charming, so entertaining and so human.

Gaetano DONIZETTI (1797–1848) Lucia di Lammermoor Beverly Sills (soprano) Luciano Pavarotti (tenor) Ch & O San Francisco Opera/Jesús López-Cobos rec. live, San Francisco Opera rec. 1972 GOLDEN MELODRAM GM 5.0072 [73:59 + 44:20] [GF]

Only the Simon Estes Fan Club need consider this issue.

Gaetano DONIZETTI (1797–1848) Lucia di Lammermoor Desiree Rancatore, Bergamo Musica Festival Gaetano Donizetti Ch & O/Antonino Fogliani rec. 2006 NAXOS 8.660255-56 [62.33 + 70.07] [RH]

Too much of a danger that you will listen to it and wonder what all the fuss is about.

Franz DOPPLER (1821-1883) & Karl DOPPLER (1825-1900) Music for two flutes Claudi Arimany and Shigenori Kudo (flutes); Alan Branch (piano) rec. 2007 SAPHIR LVC1119 [73:33] [JS]

An interesting and enterprising series. 

Antonín DVORÁK (1841 – 1904) Cello Concerto see Beecham

Antonín DVORÁK (1841 – 1904) Violin Concerto see Menuhin & Enescu

RECORDING OF THE MONTH Edward ELGAR (1857-1934) Violin Concerto Nikolaj Znaider (violin) Staatskapelle Dresden/Sir Colin Davis rec. 2009 BMG-RCA RED SEAL 88697 605882 [49:35] [MG]

An exceptional, finely rounded performance.

Roderick ELMS (b. 1951) Concertino for Celesta; Four Seasonal Nocturnes; Cygncopations; Chiarore del Mare; El Paean; Elegie; Gazelle; Il Cygnet; Fandango Fantastico; Back to Bach Roderick Elms (celesta, piano) Royal PO/Stephen Bell rec. 2005/6 DUTTON EPOCH CDLX 7175 [66.13] [EM]

Attractive, unashamedly light, tonal and romantic music.

George ENESCU (1881-1955) Suite 2 see BEETHOVEN

Johann Friedrich FASCH (1688-1758) Overture see HEINICHEN

Gabriel FAURE (1845-1924) Aprčs un Ręve see Portrait

Howard FERGUSON (1908-1999) Piano Sonata, Discovery, Five Bagatelles, Partita Raphael Terroni, Vadim Peaceman (piano)† Phillida Bannister (alto) rec. 2009 NAXOS 8.572289 [60:11] [RB]

This is a most attractive recital with Discovery lending contrast. 

Brian FERNEYHOUGH (b.1943) Terrain, No time (at all), La Chúte D'Icare, Incipits, Les Froissements d'Ailes De Gabriel Graeme Jennings (violin); Geoffrey Morris (guitar); Ken Murray (guitar); Carl Rosman (clarinet); Erkki Veltheim (viola) ELISION Ens/Franck Ollu, Jean Deroyer KAIROS 0013072KAI [60:09] [GD]

Full of life and impulsive energy. 

César FRANCK (1822-1890) Violin Sonata see Nadien

César FRANCK (1822-1890) Piano Quintet see Hymns and Prayers

Luís de FREITAS BRANCO (1890-1955) Orchestral Works - Vol. 3: Symphony 3, The Death of Manfred, Suite Alentejana 2 RTÉ Ntl SO/Álvaro Cassuto rec. 2009 NAXOS 8.572370 [72:13] [GH]

The music is highly recommendable and at Naxos price a gift.

Peter FRIBBINS (b. 1969) Piano Trio, String Quartet 1, Cello Sonata, Clarinet Quintet Angell Trio, Allegri String Qt, Raphael Wallfisch (cello) John York (piano) James Campbell (clarinet) rec. 2004-8 GUILD GMCD7343 [70:03] [MS]

Peter Fribbins' approachable and melodic style is somewhat unusual and likely to appeal to a wide audience. 

RECORDING OF THE MONTH Oskar FRIED (1871-1941) Prelude and Double Fugue, Die Auswanderer, Fantasy on themes from Hansel & Gretel, Verklärte Nacht Berlin RSO/Matthias Foremny rec. 2008-9 CAPRICCIO CAP5043 [60:21] [MC]

A composer of worth. For those that enjoy something away from the mainstream this release demands to be heard.

Giovanni GABRIELI (c.1554/1557–1612) 3 pieces see MONTEVERDI

Jack GALLAGHER (b.1947) Diversions Overture; Berceuse; Sinfonietta; Symphony in One Movement London SO/JoAnn Falletta rec. 2009 NAXOS 8.559652 [63:47] [NB]

Simply put, many other discs must surely demand your consideration first before this one.

RECORDING OF THE MONTH Gershwin by Grofé: Symphonic Jazz George GERSHWIN (1898-1937) Includes “I Got Rhythm” Variations, Rhapsody in Blue Lincoln Mayorga (piano) Al Gallodoro (clarinet/bass clarinet/alto saxophone) Harmonie Ens/Steven Richman rec. 2004-7 HARMONIA MUNDI HMU 907492 [54:40] [BR]

Even my neighbors agree: it’s the recording of the year! 

Carlo GESUALDO da Venosa (1566-1613) Madrigals Book 1 Delitiae Musicae/Marco Longhini rec. 2007 NAXOS 8.570548 [56:15] [JV]

Approach this disc with considerable caution.

Armstrong GIBBS (1889-1960) Complete Piano Trios London Piano Trio rec. 2006? ALTAMIRA ABI230105 [44:05] [RB]

Shortish playing time but warmly recorded and passionate readings of music from a master of the understated pastoral lyrical persuasion.

RECORDING OF THE MONTH Lodovico GIUSTINI (1685-1743) Sonate da Cimbalo di piano e forte Wolfgang Brunner (fortepiano) rec. 2009 CPO 777 207-2 [71:10] [JV]

The copy of a Cristofori fortepiano of 1726 and the sonatas by Giustini are an ideal match under the hands of Wolfgang Brunner.

Johann Gottlieb GRAUN (1703-1771) Overture see HEINICHEN

RECORDING OF THE MONTH Christoph GRAUPNER (1683-1760) Orchestral Works - Vol. 3 Nova Stravaganza/Siegbert Rampe rec. 2004/9 MUSIKPRODUKTION DABRINGHAUS UND GRIMM 3411628-2 [60:51] [JV]

This disc proves once again that Graupner was his own man - Nova Stravaganza delivers excellent performances.

Christoph GRAUPNER (1683-1760) Overture see HEINICHEN

Francisco GUERRERO (1528-1599) Missa Congratulamini mihi, Ave Maria a 4, Regina Caeli a 8, Dum esset rex, Maria Magdalena & altera Maria, Post dies octo a 5, Regina Caeli a 4, Thomas CRECQUILLON (c.1505-c.1557) Congratulamini mihi Cardinall’s Musick/Andrew Carwood rec. 2009 HYPERION CDA67836 [65:09] [GH]

Cardinall’s Musick will not disappoint.

Christopher GUNNING (b. 1944) The Film and Television Music BBC Philharmonic/Rumon Gamba rec. 2009/10 CHANDOS CHAN10625 [75:50] [RB]

Romantic music for the screen - smooth and touching.

Johan HALVORSEN (1864 - 1935) Entry March of the Boyars, Andante religioso, Suite from Mascarade, Symphony 1 Marianne Thorsen (violin) Bergen PO/Neeme Järvi rec. 2009 CHANDOS CHAN10584 [76:48] [AB]

A most enjoyable disc. 

RECORDING OF THE MONTH Johann HALVORSEN (1864-1935) Orchestral Works - Vol. 2 Suite ancienne, Three Norwegian dances, Air norvégien, Symphony 2 Marianne Thorsen (violin) Bergen PO/Neeme Järvi rec. 2009 CHANDOS CHAN10614 [75:19] [DJB]

If you respond to Dvorak, Borodin and Bruch, I’m sure that you will be thoroughly entertained.

RECORDING OF THE MONTH Marc-André HAMELIN (b. 1961) 12 Études in all the minor keys, Con intimissimo sentimento, Theme and Variations Marc-André Hamelin (piano) rec. 1998-2009 HYPERION CDA67789 [76:10] [DM]

It’s always a pleasure to hear artists who wear their virtuosity so lightly - one of the finest piano records of the year. 

George Frideric HANDEL (1685-1759) Flavio, Re de’ Longobardi Tim Mead (counter-tenor) Rosemary Joshua (soprano) Early Opera Company/Christian Curnyn rec. 2010 CHANDOS CHAN 0773(2) [77:03 + 69:20] [JS]

In a really committed performance like this Flavio stands out as one of Handel’s best operas. 

George Frideric HANDEL (1685-1759) Berenice, Regina d’Egitto Klara Ek; Ingela Bohlin; Franco Fagioli; Romina Basso, Il Complesso Barocco/Alan Curtis rec. 2009 VIRGIN CLASSICS 6285362 [3 CDs: 60:29 + 51:14 + 54:52] [JW]

Performances a little variable but never worryingly so - a flawed opera fully deserving of this fine recording.

RECORDING OF THE MONTH Lou HARRISON (1917 – 2003) Music for Orchestra, Ensemble and Gamelan Brooklyn PO, Cabrillo Music Festival O, Dennis Russell Davies NIMBUS 2571/74 [4 CDs: 75:51 + 74:08 + 61:20 + 68:12] [BBr]

On no account, should you miss this very special issue.

Jonathan HARVEY (b. 1939) Scena; Jubilus; Speakings Elizabeth Layton (violin) Scott Dickinson (viola) BBC Scottish SO/Ilan Volkov rec. 2009 AEON AECD1090 [55:22] [HC]

A must for all admirers of Harvey’s music.

RECORDING OF THE MONTH Joseph HAYDN (1732 - 1809) String Quartet 'The Rider' Felix MENDELSSOHN-BARTHOLDY (1809-1847) String Quartet No. 6 Josef SUK (1874-1935) Meditation on the Old Czech Hymn St. Wenceslas Graffe Qt rec. 2009 STUDIO MATOUS MK0807 [57:07] [RB]

The playing is amongst the most sheerly beautiful I have heard from any string quartet.  

Johann David HEINICHEN (1683-1729) Overture Christoph GRAUPNER (1683-1760) Overture for 3 chalumeaux, strings and bc Johann Friedrich FASCH (1688-1758) Overture for two orchestras Johann Gottlieb GRAUN (1703-1771) Overture Cappella Coloniensis/Hans-Martin Linde rec. 1987-91
PHOENIX 173 [66:03] [JV]

These recordings from the archives of WDR Cologne are worthwhile because of the repertoire - the performances are not top notch. 

Hans Werner HENZE (b. 1926) Ondine Miyako Yoshida, Edward Watson, Royal Opera House O/Barry Wordsworth, rec. 2009 OPUS ARTE OA 1030 D [114:00] [DM]

A wonderful DVD and a most desirable addition to any ballet collection.

Hans Werner HENZE (b. 1926) Hans Werner Henze and the Requiem Reinhold Friedrich (trumpet), Dimitri Vassilakis (piano), Bochumer Symphoniker/Steven Sloane rec. 2010 CYBELE RECORDS 3SACDKiG003 [3 SACDs : 67:24 + 49:19 + 42:19] [DC]

A historically significant document.

Alun HODDINOTT (1929–2008) Songs Claire Booth (soprano) Nicky Spence (tenor) Jeremy Huw Williams (baritone) Andrew Matthews-Owen (piano) Michael Pollock (piano) rec. 2009/10 BRITISH MUSIC SOCIETY BMS437CD [60:07] [MS]

The only collection of all Hoddinott's solo vocal music for piano currently available. Technically expert. Interpretatively convincing. A little treat.

York HÖLLER (b. 1944) Sphären; Der ewige Tag WDR Rundfunkchor Köln, WDR Rundfunkorchester Köln/Semyon Bychkov rec. 2001 NEOS 11039 [62:11] [HC]

Two substantial scores by a most distinguished composer whose music is still too little known.

Gustav HOLST (1874-1934) The Planets London PO/Vladimir Jurowski rec. 2009 LPO LIVE LPO0047 [43:06] [MC]

A rip-roaring performance that would enhance any collection.

Johann Nepomuk HUMMEL (1778-1837) Mathilde von Guise Kristine Gailite; Philippe Do; Pierre-Yves Pruvot; Hjordis Thebault; Choir Alea; Solamente Naturali/Didier Talpain rec. 2008 BRILLIANT CLASSICS 94043 [57.00 + 45.09] [RH]

At Brilliant’s budget price, highly recommendable for anyone interested in what was happening to German opera in the period between Beethoven and Wagner.

John IRELAND (1879-1962) Violin Sonatas 1 & 2, Cello Sonata Lucy Gould (violin); Alice Neary (cello); Benjamin Frith (piano) rec. 2009 NAXOS 8.572497 [79:05] [JW]

Plenty of character and perceptive musicianship.

Charles IVES (1874-1954) Piano Sonatas 1 & 2 Jeremy Denk (piano), Tara Helen O'Connor (flute) rec. 2010 THINK DENK MEDIA TDM2567 [73:43] [GD]

Not easy but staggeringly original and a lot of fun too.

Gordon JACOB (1895-1984) Chamber Music with Recorder Annabel Knight (recorder); Robin Bigwood (harpsichord and piano); Maggini Qt; Fontanella rec. 2009 NAXOS 8.572364 [74:41] [GO]

A fine tribute to the composer. Sparkling performances.

Nicolň JOMMELLI (1714-1774) Le Lamentazioni del profeta Geremia per il Mercoledi Santo Gérard Lesne (contr.), Véronique Gens (sop.), Il Seminario Musicale/Christophe Rousset, rec. 1996? VIRGIN CLASSICS 6286282 [73:58] [BW]

Affective music in good performances – well worth considering, but beware the lack of texts

Dimitri KABALEVSKY (1904-1987) Piano Sonatas 1-3, Recitative and Rondo, Four Preludes Arthur Pizarro (piano) REGIS RRC1324 [71:02] [WK]

Spectacular pianism in the service of some surprisingly good music. 

Giya KANCHELI (b.1935) Silent Prayer see Hymns and Prayers

Tolga KASHIF (b. 1962) The Genesis Suite Freddy Kempf (piano) Tomo Keller (violin) Caroline Dale (cello) London SO/Tolga Kashif rec. 2010 LIGHTSONG MEDIA GROUP LMGRCD1 [72:58] [JW]

Strongly engaging music-making. 

Aram KHACHATURIAN (1903-1978) Piano Concerto; Violin Concerto; Spartacus excerpts; Masquerade Suite Mindru Katz, Cristina Ortiz, David Oistrakh; London SO, Philharmonia O/Aram Khachaturian; London PO/Sir Adrian Boult; Hollywood Bowl SO/Alfred Newman rec. 1954-77 EMI CLASSICS 6278902 [78:43 + 72:33] [J-PJ]

Time-fillers rather than notable musical works yet this Oistrakh recording places the violin concerto on a much higher shelf of fine concertos.

Józef KOFFLER (1896-1944?) String Trio, Die Liebe Konstanty REGAMEY (1907-1982) Quintet Barbara Hannigan (soprano), Members of the Ebony Band/Werner Herbers rec. 2007/9 CHANNEL CLASSICS CCS31010 [60:13] [DC]

Step outside the usual repertoire and discover some rare gems.

Édouard LALO (1823 -1892) Symphonie Espagnole Henri VIEUXTEMPS (1820-1881) Violin Concerto 5 Camille SAINT-SAËNS (1835-1921) Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso Shlomo Mintz (violin) Israel PO/Zubin Mehta rec. 1988 BRILLIANT CLASSICS 94070 [60:01] [BBr]

A solid introduction to all three works. 

Kenneth LEIGHTON (1929-1988) Earth, Sweet Earth Benjamin BRITTEN (1913-1976) Winter Words James Gilchrist (tenor) Anna Tilbrook (piano) rec. 2008 DDD LINN CKD329 [63:46] [JF]

An ideal and imaginative pairing.

Lowell LIEBERMANN (b.1961) Flute concerto Georges LÜE (1858-1948) Fantasie Francis POULENC (1899-1963) Flute Sonata (orch. L. Berkeley) Carl NIELSEN (1865-1931): Flute concerto Katherine Bryan (flute) Royal Scottish Ntl O/Paul Daniel rec. 2009 LINN CKD 367 [64:11] [GD]

Sheer musicality - the result is a must for flute fans and audiophiles alike.

György LIGETI (1923-2006) Sonata for Solo Cello see Portrait

Stefan LINDGREN (b. 1960) Chamber Music - Music for the Environment 2010 Cello, flute & bassoon sonatas, Songs Stefan Lindgren (piano), Elemer Lavotha (violoncello) Kinga Práda (flute) Knut Sönstevold (bassoon) Sten Niclasson (baritone) NOSAG CD177 [73:38] [GF]

Incisive rhythms and sharp contrasts. 

Georges LÜE (1858-1948) Fantasie see LIEBERMANN

Hans Christian LUMBYE (1810-1874) The Best of Lumbye Tivoli SO/Giordano Bellincampi, David Riddell, Tamás Vetö NAXOS 8.556843 [71:21] [JS]

Every one is a little masterpiece of its genre.
