Alexander ALYABYEV (1787-1851) Chamber Works - Beethoven Trio Bonn, Artur Hrobutsky (violin) Vladimir Babeshko (viola) rec. 2015 CAVI MUSIC [DJB] Evidence of high quality Russian music pre-Glinka.

RECORDING OF THE MONTH Anton 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.

Slawomir 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.

Franz 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.

Alexander 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.

Dmitri 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.

Dream 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.

Salvator 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 be desired.

Songs from the Arc of Life Yo-Yo Ma (cello) Kathryn Stott (piano) rec. 2015 SONY CLASSICS [PCG] 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.
