Monday June 15th

Ludwig van BEETHOVEN (1770-1827)
Complete String Quartets
Kuss Qt rec. 2019
[8 CDs: 523:19] [SG]

Thrilling performances, not to be missed.

Luciano BERIO (1925-2003)
Coro, Cries of London
Norwegian Soloists’ Ch, Norwegian Radio O/Grete Pedersen rec. 2018/19
[73:26] [LW]

A major achievement in Berio choral music.

Sir James MacMILLAN (b. 1959)

The Sun Danced
, Symphony No. 5
The Sixteen, Genesis Sixteen, Britten Sinfonia/Harry Christophers rec. 2019
[78:54] [JQ]

This symphony is a new work of great importance and great conviction, and has been stunningly realised here.
Joseph MAYSEDER (1789-1863)
Piano Trios
Raimund Lissy (violin), Maria Grün (cello), Srebra Gelleva (piano) rec. 2018/19
[64:12] [SSi]

A great starting point to get to know Joseph Mayseder.
Sergei PROKOFIEV (1891-1953) Piano Concerto No. 3
Sir Arthur BLISS (1891-1975)
Piano Concerto
Gina Bachauer (piano), NYPO/Dimitri Mitropoulos rec. 1956/60

Try to hear these coruscating performances.
Igor STRAVINSKY (1882-1971)
Music for Violin and Piano
Bruno Monteiro (violin) Jo鉶 Paulo Santos (piano) rec. 2019
 [75:13] [SB]

Gentle and tender performances of most of Stravinsky’s music for violin and piano.

La forza del destino

Maria Callas (soprano) Richard Tucker (tenor) Ch & O La Scala/Tullio Serafin rec. 1954
[3 CDs: 165:00] [MP]

Wonderfully updated sound shines a fresh light on the Callas legend but the others don’t quite match her achievement.
Giovanni Battista VITALI (1632-1692)
Sonate da camera
Italico Splendore rec. 2016
[64:43] [JV]

As dance music these 'sonatas' are very good entertainment, helped by the engaging and lively playing.
Anna Kavalerova (piano)
Themes and Variations
rec. 2019
[57:42] [DD]

A very impressive themed debut.
Ji Hyung Park (guitar)
