BIS-CD-1912-14
User's Review: Theatre of Sibelius  Before listening to this album, I knew some works only through the suite (ex. The Tempest), so it was a really marvellous surprise listening to the complete works. Now I understand why The Tempest is one of the greatest works of the late Sibelius. Chorus of the Winds is amazing... Read more

User's Review: A priceless addition  This is a fairly new offering, having been issued on April 3, 2012. As such, being a complete Praetorius Mass, it is always going to be compared to that other Praetorius Mass released in 1994 (the Christmas Mass on the Archiv label). Being on a smaller label than Archiv, it might be considered to suffer by the comparison. However, it more than holds its own on listening... Read more

CHAN9902
User's Review: The Longer Version  This is the 1913 version of Vaughan Williams' London Symphony. After the First World War, he made a number of cuts to the score which were enshrined in the 40-minute 1936 version which we usually hear played today. The original version (here played excellently by the LSO) has another 20 minutes of music, mainly in the slow movement and the Finale... Read more

Published Review (By David Threasher, Gramophone): These three concertos were thought to be the work of Roman Hoffstetter (the composer of ‘Haydn’s Serenade’) but, in 2010, the scholar Bertil van Boer located a new source that enabled an accurate attribution to Kraus, and now the honour of presenting them to the world has fallen to David Aaron Carpenter. Like Mozart, Kraus was a violinist who enjoyed playing the viola... Read more

Published Review (WQXR, New York): The Bande Montréal Baroque presents all six [Brandenburg] concertos, each with a different configuration. The concertos are numbered seven to 12 and are structurally modeled after the six originals. Horn, trumpet, oboe and recorders all make appearances. The first features prominent solo trumpet lines. The bouncy third, for strings, omits the middle movement just as the original does.... Read more

User's Review: Strange daze  Kwaidan is a Japanese word meaning "weird tales" or "studies of strange things" - and here we have nine piano pieces composed by Pehr Henrik Nordgren (1944-2008) inspired by Kwaidan stories (many of which can be found online). Unsurprisingly these nine ballads for solo piano capture the peculiar essence and ghostly vibes of the Kwaidan mythos. Darkly surreal fables condensed and transposed, excellently performed by Izumi Tateno.

Published Review (By Marc Rochester, Gramophone): Herreweghe...laid out for us a superbly rich and eloquent example of Brahms’s art at its most sublime. The profound tranquillity of the outer sections is magically countered by the high drama of the central section in a way which is wholly unproblematical. Collegium Vocale Gent deliver…Warum ist das Licht gegeben with great breadth and an...awesome dynamic range which perfectly matches the intensity of the text... Read more
