Prokofiev, S.: Romeo and Juliet [Ballet] (London Symphony, Gergiev)


This album won BBC Music Magazine's Disc of the Year Award and Best Orchestral Disc Award in 2011. Critics were effusive in praising both the sound and the performances. Prokofiev's complete score is presented here on two discs, and even without dancers to watch, the program is presented with drama and passion. A riveting performance.
Haenssler Classic: CD98.619
Haydn, J.: Symphonies Nos. 82-87, "Paris Symphonies" (Heidelberg Symphony, Fey)


Thomas Fey has been widely praised for his fresh take on Haydn's symphonies, recorded with great attention paid to correct historical performance with natural brass, animal skins on percussion instruments, and little vibrato in the strings. This double album collects the Paris symphonies from within the complete series.
ATMA Classique: ACD22372
Lawes, W.: Harpe Consorts Nos. 1-11 / Suite (Eilander, Stubbs, Les Voix Humaines)


Les Voix Humaines and harpist Maxine Eilander make the most of the instrumental interplay and originality in the music of William Lawes. Appointed "musician in ordinary for lutes and voices" to the court of Charles I, Lawes was shot to death by a Parliamentarian in the civil war in 1645. The King paid tribute with a special mourning ceremony and honored him with the title 'Father of Musick.'
