ALYABYEV (1787-1851) Chamber Works - Beethoven Trio Bonn,
Artur Hrobutsky (violin) Vladimir Babeshko (viola) rec. 2015 CAVI
MUSIC [DJB] Evidence of high quality Russian
OF THE MONTH
ARENSKY (1861-1906) Piano Quintet,
String Quartet 2, Piano Trio 1 - Spectrum Concerts
Berlin rec. 2014 NAXOS [BR] The definitive
recordings of some of the best chamber music
from the romantic era and probably the one essential
Arensky CD to own.
Stanislaw CZARNECKI (b. 1949) Choral
works - Schola Cantorum Thorunensis/Pawel Glowinski
rec. 2014 ACTE PREALABLE [BR] The first
full CD dedicated to Czarnecki’s music
shows a likable, engaging composer in dialogue
with Catholic tradition, and his teacher Messiaen.
SCHUBERT (1797-1828) Sonata
19, Moments Musicaux - Emil Gryesten (piano)
rec. 2015 DANACORD [JF] A commendable
addition to the Schubert discography.
An exceptionally talented
and thoughtful pianist.
SCRIABIN (1872-1915) Complete Études - Dmitri Alexeev (piano)
rec. 2009/10 BRILLIANT CLASSICS [SB]
This will do very well for anyone wanting a modern recording.
SHOSTAKOVICH (1906-1975) Chamber Symphonies - re:orchestra/Roberto Beltrán-Zavala rec. 2014 BIS SACD [DM] Charismatic performances, full of spike and
spark; an ensemble to watch.
Shadows Works by Bax, Kelly & Somervell - Rupert
Marshall-Luck (violin) Matthew Rickard (piano) rec. 2014 EM
RECORDS [NB] A carefully and intelligently
constructed programme well produced, engineered and performed but one
of the label's lesser achievements.
Mundi The Purcell Legacy - St Salvator's Chapel
Ch/Tim Wilkinson (organ), Fitzwilliam String
Qt SANCTIANDREE [JV] Well worth investigating,
although the performances leave something to
from the Arc of Life Yo-Yo
Ma (cello) Kathryn Stott (piano) rec. 2015 SONY
A recital of encore
pieces beautifully performed.
Weynacht Gesaenge Baroque Advent and Christmas Music - Stimmwerck rec. 2012 CHRISTOPHORUS
[BW] An attractive collection
of quieter Christmas music.
