Bach, J.S.: Goldberg Variations (Staier)
Messiaen: Turangalila Symphony / L'ascension
Arnold, M.: Sussex Overture (A) / Beckus the Dandipratt / The Smoke / The Fair Field / Commonwealth Christmas Overture (Arnold)
harmonia mundi: HMC902058
Bach, J.S.: Goldberg Variations (Staier)


J.S. Bach described his Goldberg Variations as being 'Composed for music lovers, to refresh their spirits.' We certainly cannot say it any better than that, especially in this performance by Andreas Staier on harpsichord, the instrument for which it was written.
Naxos: 8.554478-79
Messiaen: Turangalila Symphony / L'ascension


Olivier Messiaen described Turangalila Symphony as 'A love song,' setting it apart from the bulk of his religiously-inspired compositions. Antoni Wit and the Polish National Radio Symphony go beyond the mechanics of this large scale work to capture the joy, mystery and enthusiasm a love song deserves.
Reference Recordings: RR-48CD
Arnold, M.: Sussex Overture (A) / Beckus the Dandipratt / The Smoke / The Fair Field / Commonwealth Christmas Overture (Arnold)


These authoritative first recordings of important Malcolm Arnold works earned a GRAMMY® nomination for Best Engineered Classical Album, and are an audiophile's delight. Sir Malcolm conducts the London Philharmonic Orchestra, and selections include 'A Sussex Overture', 'The Fair Field' and 'Commonwealth Christmas Overture.'
