Record Shelf
A selection of recent releases by our artists:

Richard Hickox has a new recording in the Percy Grainger series for Chandos, featuring the danish National Radio Symphony and Choir. Gramophone wrote of Hickox’s previous volume in the series “brings another triumph for Richard Hickox, who - as in his first disc of orchestral pieces - captures the exuberance of the composer’s inspiration, his joy in sound, his delight in the taking the listener by surprise.”

Just in the shops is Matthias Bamert’s tenth issue in his Contemporaries of Mozart series with the London Mozart Players – symphonies by Leopold Kozeluch. Pending release are two more in the series of symphonies by Pichl and Jirovec and there are still more to come! Fine composers over-shadowed by Mozart’s genius.

In March Chandos released the sixth disc in Louis Lortie’s ongoing Beethoven sonata series, coinciding with the completion of the cycle at Wigmore Hall. The success of the series has re-inforced Lortie’s position as one of the leading Beethoven exponents in the world.

Isabelle van Keulen’s latest recording is the first of the original Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor, coupled with the D minor concerto and performed with the Nieuw Sinfonietta Amsterdam conducted by Lev Markiz (BIS). The disc was chosen as BBC Radio 3’s ‘disc of the week’ in February. “Isabelle van Keulen herself is a winning soloist with a soft tone like the finest spun silk – plus strength to match, when required.” (Gramophone)

The London Winds (Director, Michael Collins) notable recording of Ligeti’s music for winds on Sony Classical was nominated for the ‘Best Chamber Music Performance’ at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Andreas Haefliger has recorded more Schubert for Decca Records. Following up his prize-winning Schubert Lieder disc with Matthias Goerne and the Schubert Notturno with the Takacs Quartet comes this new recording of the Trout Quintet, also with the Takacs. The release came in November, coinciding with performances in Germany and at London’s Wigmore Hall. Future projects with Goerne and the Takacs are planned.
