A selection of recent releases by our artists:

Mischa Maisky’s new recording of the Bach Cello Suites has been released by Deutsche Grammophon, to widespread acclaim. He decided to re-record the cycle after he heard his old recording by accident and didn’t recognise himself! “What was once big-boned and lavishly emphatic is now gentler and infinitely more witty…This is what re-recording should be all about.” (Independent) Included in the new set is a CD-rom featuring Maisky’s own detailed edition of the Suites, listening guides to individual movements and lavishly illustrated articles on Bach and the artist.

Deutsche Grammophon has released another stunning Handel recording by Paul McCreesh and the Gabrieli Consort. The cast of Theodora includes Susan Gritton, Robin Blaze, Susan Bickley, Paul Agnew and Neal Davies. “McCreesh directs with a vivacious suavity matched by a pacing that never puts a foot wrong. The instrumentalists respond with cheerful alacrity, the chorus is full blooded, whilst the soloists constitute a dream cast” (Classic CD Magazine)

The fourth instalment of Richard Goode’s critically-acclaimed Mozart concerti project with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra has been released by Nonesuch (K 595 & 459). “subtle gradations of tone, a discriminating employment of rubato; carefully contained dynamics, clear though never brittle finger-work; and judicious timing. This is a breathing, speaking Mozart, discreet but never understated.” (Independent)

An all-Barber recording in the Naxos ‘American Classics’ series has been released, featuring the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Marin Alsop. The disc, including Barber’s first and second symphonies, has been hugely popular and was nominated for a Gramophone award. “Marin Alsop conducts the Royal Scottish National Orchestra in performances that have both grandeur and zest.” (Daily Telegraph)

Chandos has re-released Matthias Bamert’s recording of music by Sir Hubert Parry with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, including his Symphonic Variations, Concertstück in G minor, Elegy for Brahms and From Death to Life.
