BERWALD (1796-1868) Reminiscence of
the Norwegian Mountains, Konzertstück, Wettlauf, Ernste
und heitere Grillen, Drottningen av Golconda Overture,
Elfenspiel Gävle SO/Petri Sakari rec. 2000 NAXOS
[SV] At Naxos prices, this is still attractive
for the Reminiscence and, especially, for the Konzertstück. The
other performances are flavourful, and will serve as stopgaps.
EALES The Dancing Flute Andy Findon (flute, penny
whistle, piccolo); Geoff Eales (piano) rec. 2012, NIMBUS ALLIANCE
[JW] Excellently recorded, succinctly
annotated and expands still further Eales’ discography. Roll on
KEREM (b.1981) Symphony 3, Lamento, String Sextet - Tallinn
Ensemble, Estonian Ntl SO, Tallinn CO/Mikk Murdvee (viola) rec.
2012 TOCCATA CLASSICS [Byz] Another
hugely impressive entry in Toccata's continuing series devoted
to 20th and 21st century Baltic music, hitherto undeservedly neglected.
KORNAUTH (1891-1959) Piano Music - Volume 1 - Jonathan Powell
(piano) rec. 2008, TOCCATA CLASSICS [JW]
Music brought thoughtfully and stylishly to life.
OFFENBACH (1819-1880) Hoffmanns Erzählungen Siegfried
Jerusalem (tenor) Jeanette Scovotti (soprano) Bavarian Radio Ch,
Munich Radio O/Heinz Wallberg rec. 1979 EMI CLASSICS [JS]
No mere curiosity but an interesting and
valid approach which forms a valuable supplement to other versions.
de ROTHSCHILD (1832-1924) The Songs - Charlotte de Rothschild
(soprano) Adrian Farmer (piano) rec. 2012 NIMBUS [GH] Sung
as if each song is a precious and unique jewel.
SCHUBERT (1797 - 1828) String Quartets 12 & 15 - Wihan
Qt rec. 2012 NIMBUS ALLIANCE [MG]
Impressive performances blending panache and drama, but rather relentless.
of Peter Pears Benjamin Britten (piano) Julian Bream
(guitar) rec. 1947-60 REGIS [PCG] It
is valuable to have these recordings gathered on this very reasonably
Paths Works by Ferneyhough, Xenakis, Gordon &
Smith Justin DeHart (percussion)
INNOVA [DC] Interesting
one-on-one sonic encounter.
Watt (guitar) Works by Dowland, McLeod, Walton, Wilson &
Britten rec. 2012. DDD NIMBUS ALLIANCE [Byz] There
is little to fault this disc.
