Canadian virtuoso Marc-André Hamelin leads off a month of exciting new releases with his first recording of piano music by Debussy, which includes the complete Images and book two of the Préludes. Other keyboard highlights include Javier Perianes playing Mendelssohn’s Songs without Words, a Schubert recital from Shai Wosner and 2014 Gramophone Award winning harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani playing Rameau’s Pièces de Clavecin. The brilliant pianist Yuja Wang also is featured on Masterpieces in Miniature, the latest release from the San Francisco Symphony, which boasts a selection of brief musical gems hand-picked by maestro Michael Tilson Thomas. Acclaimed Schubert lieder cycles on harmonia mundi and Onyx continue, with Matthias Goerne’s Winterreise and Florian Boesch’s Schwanengesang. November’s vocal glories also include Bach’s monumental B Minor Mass in a new recording for Hyperion performed by the talented young ensemble Arcangelo and a selection of Monteverdi Madrigals from Les Arts Florissants. Violinist Augustin Dumay and Canadian pianist Louis Lortie explore the Violin Sonatas of Brahms on a new disc for Onyx. Clarinetist Jon Manasse and pianist Jon Nakamatsu team up with cellist Clive Greensmith for more Brahms, on a disc featuring the Clarinet Trio. In non-classical releases, jazz fans will rejoice over a new album from Ben Sidran, and Discograph presents the latest release from singer-songwriter Anna Aaron.
