David CARLSON (b.1952) True Divided Light, Cello sonata Geraldine Walther (viola) Emil Miland (cello) David Korevaar (piano) rec. March 2009 MSR CLASSICS MS 1283 [43:56] [Byz]

David Carlson's chamber music is worth anyone's money.

Paul CARR (b.1961) Requiem for an Angel Sophie Bevan (sop.) Mark Stone (bar.) Angelorum Ch, Bath Phil/Gavin Carr, rec. 2010 STONE RECORDS 5060192780048 [71:37] [JF]

Entertains, sometimes challenges and most importantly of all, moves the soul and gives encouragement and solace to the spirit.

Mario CASTELNUOVO-TEDESCO (1895-1968) Shakespeare Overtures - Vol. 2 The Winter’s Tale, King John, Much Ado about Nothing, The Merchant of Venice, As you like it West Australian SO/Andrew Penny rec. 1994 NAXOS 8.572501 [59.12] [GH]

The music is unfailingly attractive, is colourfully orchestrated and sympathetically played. 

Marc-Antoine CHARPENTIER (1643 - 1704) Actéon, Orphée descendant aux enfers, La pierre philosophale Boston Early Music Festival Vocal & Chamber Ens/Paul O'Dette, Stephen Stubbs rec. 2009 CPO 777 613-2 [66:19] [JV]

Lively performances of three compositions which show Charpentier's theatrical instincts.

Luigi CHERUBINI (1760-1842) Requiem Kammerchor & Hofkapelle Stuttgart/Frieder Bernius rec. 2010 CARUS 83.227 [46:12] [LW]

A highly desirable new recording of Cherubini’s C minor Requiem.

Luigi CHERUBINI (1760-1842) Hymne à la Victoire see BERLIOZ

Erik CHISHOLM (1904-1965) Music for Piano - Vol. 6 Ceol Mor Dances, Dunedin Suite, Scottish Airs, Night Song of the Bards Murray McLachlan (piano) rec. 2006 DIVERSIONS DDV24149 [77:30] [JF]

The playing is superb, and reflects the massive commitment that Murray McLachlan has made to the piano music of Erik Chisholm. 

RECORDING OF THE MONTH Frédéric CHOPIN (1810-1849) Ballades, Scherzi Bernd Glemser (piano) rec. 2009 OEHMS CLASSICS OC 758 [73:22] [RC]

This disc is a treasure, a rarity to behold.

Frederic CHOPIN (1810-1849) 24 Preludes, Barcarolle, Nocturnes Daniel Grimwood (piano) rec. 2009 SFZ MUSIC SFZM0210 [51.07] [RBe]

Something of a mixed bag. 

Franz DANZI (1763-1826) Variations on Mozart’s Là ci darem la mano see SPOHR

Michael DAUGHERTY (b. 1954) Route 66, Ghost Ranch, Sunset Strip, Time Machine Bournemouth SO/Marin Alsop rec. 2008 NAXOS AMERICAN CLASSICS 8.559613 [68:49] [NB]

Great fun.

Karl Yulyevich DAVIDOV (1838-1889) Cello Concertos 1 & 2 Marina Tarasova (cello) Davydov SO/Konstantin Krimetz rec. 1995 ALTO ALC1066 [77:51] [RB]

Ms Tarasova has a healthy sense of how Davidov’s music should go.

Carl DAVIS (b. 1936) Carl’s War Czech Ntl SO/Carl Davis rec. 2010 CARL DAVIS COLLECTION CDC009 [67:56] [RB]

Music that carries acrid remorseless tragedy as overwhelmingly romantic grandeur.

Claude DEBUSSY (1862-1918) En blanc et noir see BARTÓK

Christoph DEMANTIUS (1567-1643) St John Passion & Motets KammerChor Saarbrücken/Georg Grün rec. 1997 CHRISTOPHORUS CHE0149-2 [58:43] [JV]

Demantius' expressive music in the stile antico is given immaculate performances.

Lawrence DILLON (b.1959) Insects and Paper Airplanes String Quartets 2-4 Daedalus Qt, Benjamin Hochman rec. 2009/10 BRIDGE 9332 [72:35] [JW]

The youngest composer to earn a doctorate at Juilliard.

Ernst von DOHNÁNYI (1877–1960) Variations on a Nursery Tune see Dohnányi in London

Gaetano DONIZETTI (1797–1848) Great Singers in Donizetti rec. 1906-47 NIMBUS PRIMA VOCE NI7892/3 [74:17 + 67:53] [RMo]

A pleasing, if slightly obtuse and incomplete survey of Donizetti singing from the first part of the twentieth century.

René DUCHIFFRE (b. 1961) Concerto for Two Violas see VIVALDI

Maurice DURUFLE (1902-1986) Requiem, Quatre Motets sur des thèmes grégoriens, Messe “Cum Jubilo” Iain Farrington (organ) William Clements (baritone) Kathryn Turpin (mezzo) John Todd (cello) Ch St. John’s College, Cambridge/ Christopher Robinson, rec. 1998 NIMBUS NI5599 [69:20] [WH]

A beautifully sung collection of Duruflé masterpieces that could have done with a little more blood.

Antonín DVORÁK (1841-1904) Symphonies 6 & 9 Baltimore SO/Marin Alsop rec. 2007-8 NAXOS NBD0014 [87:28] [DBi]

Well turned but slightly careful performances in very fine sound.

Antonin DVOŘÁK (1841-1904) Serenade for Strings Josef SUK (1874-1935) Serenade for Strings Hugo WOLF (1860-1903) Italian Serenade Edvard GRIEG (1843-1907) Holberg Suite Stuttgart CO/Karl Münchinger rec. 1956-75 DECCA ELOQUENCE 480 0447 [79:56] [SV]

An excellent buy at a low price. 

Antonín DVOŘÁK (1841-1904) Symphony 9 Leoš JANÁCEK (1854-1928) Missa Glagolitica Prague Phil. Ch, Czech PO, Mahler Jugendorchester/Václav Neumann rec. 1987/91 ARTHAUS MUSIK 101 535 [99:00] [DM]

Neumann’s contrasting demeanour – relaxed and avuncular in the Dvořák, unsmiling and visibly tense in the Janácek – is a pretty good guide to the qualities of these two performances.

Brian EASDALE (1909-1995) Film Music BBC Ntl O Wales/Rumon Gamba rec. 2010 CHANDOS CHAN10636 [76:42] [RB]

Easdale’s rewarding film music is given Chandos’s full regal panoply.

Petr EBEN (1929-2007) Symphonia Gregoriana Gunther Rost (organ) Bamberger Symphoniker, Bayerische Staatsphilharmonie/Gabriel Feltz rec. 2009 OEHMS CLASSICS OC643 [56:35] [DM]

A must for Eben aficionados and inquisitive listeners alike.

Sir Edward ELGAR (1857-1934) Symphonies 1 & 2, Serenade, Pomp & Circumstance marches 1-6, In the south, Enigma variations Sydney Symphony/Vladimir Ashkenazy rec. 2008 EXTON EXCL00027-30 [4CDs: 208:29]  [JQ]

These performances have their merits but don’t disturb existing recommendations. 

Gabriel FAURÉ (1845–1924) Complete Nocturnes Stefan Irmer (piano) rec. 2010 MUSIKPRODUKTION DABRINGHAUS UND GRIMM MDG 618 1626-2 [78:59] [ST]

Irmer’s playing was rather uniform throughout but there are certainly moments of great beauty, and the dying chords of No. 8 are a fine way to end.

Gabriel FAURÉ (1845–1924) Violin Sonata 1 see BEETHOVEN

Girolamo FRESCOBALDI (1583-1643) Keyboard Works - Vols 1 & 3 Richard Lester (harpsichord, virginal) rec. 2009/11 NIMBUS NI5850/70 [72:29 & 77:29] [BW]

These recordings bring the music to glorious life.

Armstrong GIBBS (1889–1960) Complete works for violin and piano Robert Atchison (violin) Olga Dudnik (piano) rec. 2010 GUILD GMCD 7353 [72:10] [NB]

So a treasure trove for those who enjoy the lyrical English pastoral tradition.

Umberto GIORDANO (1867-1948) Fedora see A Tribute to Mirella Freni

Philip GLASS (b. 1937) Violin Concerto No.2 The American Four Seasons Robert McDuffie (violin) London PO/Marin Alsop rec. 2010 ORANGE MOUNTAIN MUSIC OMM0072 [40:14] [AM]

An appealing new concerto let down by a poor performance from its dedicatee. 

Philip GLASS (b. 1937) Dances 2 & 4, Satyagraha Act III Finale Christopher BOWERS-BROADBENT (b.1945) Duets and Canons Kevin Bowyer (organ) rec. 1999 NIMBUS NI 5664 [71:50] [DC]

A fine recording and superhuman performances.

Alexander GLAZUNOV (1865-1936) Symphony 6, Raymonda,Triumphal March Royal PO, London SO/Yondani Butt rec. 1987 REGIS RRC1359 [76:27] [RB]

If you would like to sample the Glazunov orchestral music then this is a good place to start your journey.

Alexander GLAZUNOV (1865-1936) Piano Concertos 1 & 2 Elena Glazunov (piano) Hamburg PO/Alois Melichar rec. 1956 PRISTINE CLASSICAL PASC249 [51:00] [RB]

This is a true representation of the best in Glazunov interpretation. No half measures.

Henryk GORECKI (1933-2010) Kantata see PÄRT

Stephen GOSS (b. 1964) The Albeniz Concerto see RODRIGO

François-Joseph GOSSEC (1734-1829) Symphonie Militaire, Marche Lugubre see BERLIOZ

Percy GRAINGER (1882–1961) The Grainger Edition rec. 1992-2002 CHANDOS CHAN10638(19) [19 CDs: c.23 hrs] [RB]

Grainger emerges as far more than pretty, cosy or genteel; more a case of romantic, folksy, dangerous, exultant, tumultuous and, yes, sentimental. Glorious. A uniquely cornucopiac offering.

Percy GRAINGER (1882–1961) Salute to Percy Grainger rec. 1927-94 DECCA ELOQUENCE 480 2205 [73:18 + 44:34] [RB]

A very substantial helping of the essential Grainger in performances and recordings that are exemplars to the rest – praise-be!

Aleksandr Tikhonovich GRECHANINOV (1864-1956) All-Night Vigil Holst Singers/Stephen Layton rec. 1998 HYPERION HELIOS CDH55353 [63:16] [RMo]

If you are already familiar with, and love, the sonorous incantation of Rachmaninov’s so-called “Vespers”, this disc is definitely for you.

Alexandr Tikhonovich GRECHANINOV (1864-1956) Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom 4 see Russian Orthodox Chant

Edvard GRIEG
Symphonic Dances, Norwegian Dances see Scandinavian Classics

Edvard GRIEG (1843-1907) Holberg Suite see DVOŘÁK

Sofia GUBAIDULINA (b.1931) Hell und dunkel see PÄRT

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

Some amusing light music, and more serious works which channel Bruch and Tchaikovsky. 

Marc-André HAMELIN (b.1961) Twelve Études, Little Nocturne, Theme and Variations Marc-André Hamelin (piano) rec. 1998-2009 HYPERION CDA67789 [76:10] [JW]

Richly characterful, played with dazzling control and sumptuously recorded.

RECORDING OF THE MONTH George Frideric HANDEL (1685-1759) Water Music, Rodrigo Overture and dances Les Musiciens du Louvre, Grenoble/Marc Minkowski rec. 2010 NAÏVE V 5234 [68:00] [MG]

A disc of vividly realized and thoroughly entertaining performances. 

George Frideric HANDEL (1685-1759) Serse Anne Sofie von Otter (mezzo) Sandrine Piau (soprano) Les Arts Florissants Ch & O/William Christie rec. live, 2003 VIRGIN CLASSICS 6407082 [3 CDs: 165:01] [ST]

Arrestingly beautiful, sung with passion and intensity. 

Johann Adolf HASSE (1699–1783) Te Deum, Litaniae Laurentanae, Tantum ergo, Regina Coeli Sächsisches Vocalensemble, Batzdorfer Hofkapelle/Matthias Jung rec. 2009 CPO 777 462-2 [68.24] [RH]

This isn't great music, but it is well crafted and attractive and is presented in persuasive performances.

BARGAIN OF THE MONTH Franz Josef HAYDN (1732-1809) Missa Brevis, “Harmoniemesse” Trinity Ch, Rebel Baroque O/J. Owen Burdick, Jane Glover rec. 2001/8 NAXOS 8.572126 [52:28] [KS]

Exceptionally elegant performances from a first rate band of musicians. This is almost a must-have.

Franz Josef HAYDN (1732-1809) Organ concertos Ton Koopman (organ) Catherine Manson (violin) Amsterdam Baroque O rec. 2009 CHALLENGE CLASSICS CC72390 [62:41] [DC]

A very welcome release indeed.

Joseph HAYDN (1732–1809) Composés par Mr. Hayden Divertimento, String Quartets Fitzwilliam String Qt rec. 2001 DIVINE ART DIVERSIONS DDV24151 [62:45] [MG]

Faithful accounts full of character and expression.

RECORDING OF THE MONTH Hans Werner HENZE (b. 1926) Hans Werner Henze and the Requiem Dimitri Vassilakis (piano) Reinhold Friedrich (trumpet) Bochumer Symphoniker/Steven Sloane rec. 2010 CYBELE KIG003 [3 SACDs: 159:02]   [MS]

A strange but strangely captivating Requiem by Henze given a superb and memorable performance with bonuses.

Jennifer HIGDON (b.1962) Violin Concerto Pyotr Ilyich TCHAIKOVSKY (1840-1893) Violin Concerto Hilary Hahn (violin) Royal Liverpool PO/Vasily Petrenko rec.2008/2009 DEUTSCHE GRAMMOPHON 477 8777 [68:16] [GD]

Hahn, Petrenko and the RLPO are on fine form here.

Paul HINDEMITH (1895 - 1963) Three Sonatas Arnold SCHOENBERG (1874-1951) Variations on a Recitative, Two fragments of a Sonata Ernst PEPPING (1901-1981) Three Fugues on BACH Kevin Bowyer (organ) rec. 1993 NIMBUS NI5411 [79:30] [DC]

As good as any, and better than most if not all.

Franz Anton HOFFMEISTER (1754-1812) Double Bass Quartets 2-4 Franz SCHUBERT (1797-1828) Arpeggione Sonata Norbert Duka (double-bass) Ernő Sebestyén (violin) Helmut Nikolai (viola) Martin Osertag (cello) Phillip Moll (piano) rec. 1980/4 NAXOS 8.572187 [66:15] [Byz]

These are by no means important works, but for historical novelty and general attractive musicianship, this CD is worth any music-lover's consideration. 

Jexper HOLMEN (b.1971) Oort Cloud Martin Stig ANDERSEN (b.1973) Cosmogyral Echo Torben Snekkestad (soprano saxophone) Frode Andersen, Frode Haltli (accordions) rec. 2009 DACAPO 8.226562 [56:23] [Byz]

Only for those who are comfortable in the Kuiper Belt of experimentalism.

RECORDING OF THE MONTH Gustav HOLST (1874-1934) The Planets York BOWEN (1884-1961) Suite in Three Movements Fiona York & John York (piano) rec. 2010 NIMBUS NI5871 [70:28] [JF]

An excellent recording from a totally committed duo. Utterly sympathetic and inspired.

Toshio HOSOKAWA (b. 1955) Flute music Kolbeinn Bjarnason (flute, alto flute) Caput Ens/Snorri Sigfus Birgisson rec. 2008 NAXOS 8.572479 [57:23] [HC]

A very fine survey of Hosokawa’s music for flute.

Engelbert HUMPERDINCK (1854–1921) Hänsel und Gretel Elisabeth Grümmer (mezzo) Elisabeth Schwarzkopf (soprano) Philharmonia O/Herbert von Karajan rec. 1953 EMI CLASSICS 6407162 [2CDs: 108:10] [GD]

A modern makeover for an old favourite.

Gunnar IDENSTAM (b.1961) Jukkaslåtar (Songs for Jukkasjärvi) Simon Marainen (yoik, vocals) Brita-Stina Sjaggo (vocals) Sandra Marteleur (violin) Thorbjörn Jakobsson (saxophone) Jonas Sjöblom (percussion) Gunnar Idenstam (organ, tapes) rec. 2010 BIS BIS-SACD-1868 [65:40] [Byz]

New Age simplicity cross-over … really rather samey. 

Charles IVES (1874-1954) String Quartets 1 & 2 Juilliard String Qt rec. 1966/7 SONY 77117 [48:30] [LW]

A warm welcome to the Juilliard performances of the Ives Quartets. 

Hyacinthe JADIN (1776-1800) Overture see BERLIOZ

Leoš JANÁCEK (1854-1928) Works for piano, violin & cello In the Mist, Violin Sonata, Fairy Tale Radoslav Kvapil (piano) Petr Messerieur (violin) Evzen Rattay (cello) rec. 1989 REGIS RRC1312 [76:41] [RB]

Eloquent and authoritative readings of Janácek’s chamber works in superbly immediate sound.

Leoš JANÁCEK (1854-1928) Missa Glagolitica see DVOŘÁK

Dmitri KABALEVSKY (1904-1987) 24 Preludes, Sonatina, Piano Sonata 3 Murray McLachlan (piano) rec. 1991 ALTO ALC1084 [71:39] [RB]

McLachlan knows his Russian repertoire and his recordings show this in full.

Vasily KALINNIKOV (1866-1901) Symphony 1 Nikolai RIMSKY-KORSAKOV (1844-1908) Sinfonietta on Russian Themes, Overture on Russian Themes USSR SO/Evgeny Svetlanov rec. 1975/85 REGIS RRC 1351 [79:03] [RB]

An amply timed disc to please the explorer who harbours any sympathies for the Russian nationalists - splendid Kalinnikov and imaginative folksy Rimsky.

Giya KANCHELI (b. 1935) Themes from the Songbook Dino Saluzzi (bandoneon) Gidon Kremer (violin) Andrei Pushkarev (vibraphone) rec. 2010 ECM 2188 [59:46] [WH]

Kancheli’s music for stage and screen, reinterpreted; surprising and different. Perfect relaxed, late night listening. 

RECORDING OF THE MONTH Nikolai KAPUSTIN (b.1937) 2 + 2 4 Kapustin Concerto for two pianos and percussion, Eight Concert Etudes, Sonata 14 Daniel del Pino, Ludmil Angelov (pianos) Neopercusión NON PROFIT MUSIC NPM1011 [6446] [RB]

CDs of Kapustin are far too rare and it is a delight to welcome this one. 

Aram KHACHATURIAN (1903-1978) Spartacus, Gayane (excerpts) Bournemouth SO/Kirill Karabits rec. 2010 ONYX 4063 [72:48] [DM]

As a recording and a performance this disc bodes well for the BSO/Karabits/Onyx partnership.

Charles KOECHLIN (1867–1950) Pieces for Piano - Vol 3 Michael Korstick (piano) rec. 2009 HÄNSSLER CLASSIC CD 93.261 [76:39] [MC]

An accomplished player who easily shifts from ardent vitality to delicate sensitivity.

Rodolphe KREUTZER (1766-1831) Violin Concertos 17-19 Axel Strauss (violin) San Francisco Conservatory O/Andrew Mogrelia rec. 2009 NAXOS 8.570380 [71:52] [JW]

Marvellously warm textures and instinctive control.

Franz KROMMER (1759-1831) Concerto for two clarinets see MOZART

RECORDING OF THE MONTH Johann KUHNAU (1660–1722) & Vincenzo ALBRICI (1631-1696) Soprano Cantatas Barbara Christina Steude (soprano) Concerto con voce/Jan Katzschke rec. 2009 CPO 777 531-2 [67:32] [MS]

There are few enough recordings of Kuhnau to make this a recommendable recording even if it did not have the vibrancy and immediacy that it does.

Franz Paul LACHNER (1803-1890) Sängerfahrt see SCHUMANN

Orlando di LASSO (1532-1594) Prophetiae Sibyllarum, Christmas motets Weser-Renaissance Bremen/Manfred Cordes rec. 2009 CPO 777 468-2 [64.44]  [RH]

Cordes and his musicians fall just short of bringing these pieces to life. 

Kenneth LEIGHTON (1929-1988) Complete Chamber Works for Cello Raphael Wallfisch (cello) Raphael Terroni (piano) rec. 2009/10 BRITISH MUSIC SOCIETY BMS439CD [61:03] [RB]

A gripping and variegated musical experience.

Franz LISZT (1811–1886) Piano Concertos 1 & 2, Harmonies poétiques et religieuses (excerpts) Alfred Brendel (piano) Vienna Pro Musica/Michael Gielen REGIS RRC1362 [73:56] [IL]

Brendel is imposing on this early Vox reissue.

Franz LISZT (1811-1886) Hungarian Rhapsody 1 see Dohnányi in London

Franz LISZT (1811-1886) Piano sonata see SCHUMANN

Sergey Mikhaylovich LYAPUNOV (1859-1924) Violin Concerto, Symphony 1 Maxim Fedotov (violin) Russian PO/Dmitry Yablonsky rec. 2007 NAXOS 8.570462 [64:26] [IL]

Derivative music yet nonetheless appealing and melodious and with such good performances as these, it is well worth exploring. 

Sergey Mikhaylovich LYAPUNOV (1859-1924) Piano concertos 1 & 2, Rhapsody on Ukrainian Themes Shorena Tsintsabadze (piano) Russian PO/Dmitry Yablonsky rec. 2008 NAXOS 8.570783 [58:32] [KS]

Hearty and robust performances of music that is at times most interesting and at others somewhat mechanical. The second concerto makes the whole effort worthwhile.
