No new release from Garrick Ohlsson should ever be missed, and here he contributes a very special recital of Late Piano Works by Brahms, a composer with whom he has a close and lifelong association; three sets of miniatures from the deep twilight of Brahms's compositional life, an energetic early scherzo written some forty years previously providing the contrasting encore. Luís Toscano specializes in the music of his native Portugal, and here he directs his vocal ensemble Cupertinos in Cardoso Requiem, Lamentations, Magnificat & motets. This is an outstanding recording of a composer from the golden age of Portuguese polyphony, steeped in the fervent Catholicism of his time and place.
On LSO Live a mammoth new set entitled Berlioz Odyssey brings together all of Sir Colin Davis’ iconic Berlioz recordings made for the label with the London Symphony Orchestra: from celebrated interpretations of popular orchestral works to landmark opera recordings, including the double Grammy Award-winning Les Troyens.
Baritone Stephan Loges has been in the studio for Signum with sympathetic accompanist Iain Burnside. Their programme entitled Nature's solace includes cycles by Schumann and Brahms, as well as a rare insight into the songs of Yrjö Kilpinen.
