September 2015 New Releases

Prokofiev’s second Violin Concerto is the focus of Viktoria Mullova’s latest release for Onyx, which also includes the composer’s solo and duo sonatas. Pianist Alexander Melnikov is the featured soloist on the second volume of harmonia mundi’s special Schumann trilogy, offering listeners a rich and virtuosic account of the composer’s beloved Piano Concerto. We are honored to welcome British label Edition to our roster of label partners. Best known for their innovative jazz catalog, Edition is now expanding their scope to include classical recordings. Spanish guitarist Pablo Villegas makes his début on harmonia mundi with Americano, a solo album that includes a wide selection of music from the US and Latin America. Tenors Ian Bostridge and Werner Güra survey the lieder of Brahms and Beethoven on their latest releases. Hyperion offers two superb additions to the chamber music catalog. Marc-André Hamelin is the soloist in Leo Ornstein’s Piano Quintet, and Steven Isserlis is featured on a disc of Baroque cello sonatas. Notable early-music releases include Rameau’s opera Zaïs with Les Talens Lyriques, a specially-priced Renaissance collection from The Tallis Scholars and a French Baroque world première from Ensemble Correspondances. The latest release from GRAMMY® award winners Conspirare features choral works inspired by the poetry of Pablo Neruda. Other key choral releases include the Westminster Abbey Choir’s recording of music by Parry and another volume in the Cardinall’s Musick’s Thomas Tallis series. Scottish actor David Tennant, famous the world over for his role in the BBC television series Doctor Who, stars on a different center stage this month. He is the narrator on a new recording for Le Chant du Monde of Prokofiev’s ever-popular Peter and the Wolf, heard in a special jazz arrangement featuring The Amazing Keystone Big Band.
