The young British group Amici Voices presents sensitive, chamber-sized performances of Bach Cantatas Nos 106 & 182 alongside the motet Komm, Jesu, komm. This is simply sublime music, the whole programme imbued with the greatest poignancy. And with a fourth volume of the Complete Dohnányi Solo Piano Music, Martin Roscoe delivers the final instalment of his much-praised series dedicated to a composer whose work is regularly championed by Hyperion. Consummate performances may, as throughout, be taken for granted.
The music of King's is a freshly recorded compendium of choral favourites—classics of the repertoire plus the odd more unexpected item. Stephen Cleobury conducts a resplendent Choir of King's College Cambridge.
Iestyn Davies and Fretwork have recorded an intriguing new album for Signum. If & other songs by Michael Nyman intertwines twenty-first-century Purcellian re-imaginings with bold new harmonies and wondrous inventions to haunt the mind. And the Carducci String Quartet sees the second release in its on-going Shostakovich String Quartets cycle, here presenting Nos 1, 2 & 7.
Solo piano music by Musorgsky, Ravel & Messiaen comes from Signum courtesy of Peter Donohoe: diverse explorations of 'pictures' in sound from a performer acclaimed as much for his musicianship and stylistic virtuosity as for his commanding technique.
New from LSO Live this month is a dramatic new recording of Berlioz's Damnation of Faust, Sir Simon Rattle marshalling the serried ranks—celestial and diabolical—of the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. A new compilation from the same stable, the orchestra this time under the baton of Bernard Haitink, brings together the Beethoven Piano Concerto No 2 & Triple Concerto, acclaimed recordings made in 2005 and 2013.
A tenth volume in David Goode's epic
Love abide & other choral works by Roxanna Panufnik brings to Signum a modern—and decidedly multicultural—choral take on the theme of love, whether religious or otherwise; the Colla Voce Singers join the London Mozart Players and others to perform. Perpetual twilight is the title of a new album from the University College Dublin Choral Scholars; conductor Desmond Earley has fashioned a programme of works new and old which draw on the rich literature of Ireland and its pivotal location at the Atlantic's wild edge.
