BIS Records ambitious release schedule continues to delight us with wave after wave of standout releases. 

For a limited time, take 20% off the releases in this feature:

Clarinet Recital: Frost, Martin - SCRIABIN, A. / BACH, J.S. / BRAHMS, J. / RIMSKY-KORSAKOV, N. / KREISLER, F. MESSAGER, A. (Frost and Friends)

As one of Sweden’s most charismatic and acclaimed classical musicians, Martin Fröst has spellbound audiences around the world. At Friday’s Gala Concert, before an audience including several crowned heads and Swedish and international dignitaries he performed three of his favourite encores, including a spectacular version of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumble-Bee as a head-over-heels duet with mezzo-soprano Malena Ernman. All three pieces also appear on ‘Fröst and Friends’, a disc hot off the press for which Martin Fröst has selected 18 encores which he regularly performs in concert

BACH, J.S.: Cantatas, Vol. 46 (Suzuki) - BWV 17, 19, 45, 102


BEETHOVEN, L. van: Piano Works (Complete), Vol. 8 (Brautigam) - Sonatas Nos. 28, 30-32

The 32 piano sonatas by Ludwig van Beethoven have been called ‘the New Testament of piano music', and belong to the most recorded repertoire of any instrument. With this disc, volume eight in his traversal of Beethoven's music for solo piano, Ronald Brautigam has reached the last of the 32, completing a sonata cycle which has made a great impression on all who have been following it.

‘Beethoven the revolutionary comes closer than ever in Brautigam's fiery interpretations.' - The Times (UK)

‘Stunning performances that are technically breathtaking, stylistically astute, emotionally intense and musically alive in every moment.' - Gramophone

ROMAN, J.H.: Royal Wedding Music (Helsingborg Symphony, Manze)

As befits a royal wedding, several days of celebrations will precede the ceremony in the 13th-century Stockholm Cathedral on Saturday. In a similar way, the 1744 marriage between Crown Prince Adolf Fredrik of Sweden and Lovisa Ulrika of Prussia was celebrated at the palace of Drottningholm with a number of balls, banquets and ceremonies. Music was an all-important feature, and among the works performed was Johan Helmich Roman’s Drottningholm Music – written for the occasion, and considered a milestone in the music history of Sweden. 276 years later, a new recording packaged in a tastefully designed wrapping, forms BIS’ contribution to the Royal Wedding of Crown Princess Victoria and Mr Daniel Westling. Performed by the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra under the acclaimed baroque violinist and conductor Andrew Manze, Roman’s suite is as festive and charming as ever.
