Bart Van Reyn and Le Concert d’Anvers delve into two of Joseph Haydn’s lesser–known symphonies. Dating from the autumn of 1784, when Haydn was nearing the end of his employment at the Esterházy court, both seem to anticipate the Paris symphonies that would shortly follow. Having been largely overlooked by historically informed performance specialists, Van Reyn’s reading highlights the pair’s mutual sense of artistic ambition, drawing out their concise but powerful musical drama. These are accompanied with Haydn’s effervescent Piano Concerto in D major, featuring Belgian fortepianist Lucas Blondeel. Blondeel demonstrates his clear affinity with Haydn’s solo writing, rendering a performance that captures the concerto’s elegance while always sparkling with its composer’s characteristic wit.

Derived from the viole da braccio family rather than that of the viols, the cello gained its independence in the Cremona cradle of Italian instrument making between the 16th and early 18th century. It adopted the shape of a large violin – so large that it cannot rest on the shoulder like a violin or viola and is therefore held between the legs; an adjustable pin planted in the ground was added from the middle of the 19th century to make it more stable and easier to hold.

Nach über 120 Jahren erstmals im Original: Puccinis Le Willis in Urfassung bei Opera Rara Es ist eine Geschichte von Untreue und der Rache einer verlassenen Seele aus dem Jenseits: Als Puccini mit Le Willis zum ersten Mal eine Oper schrieb, begeisterte er sich für die Traditionen der Spukromantik und wählte einen Stoff aus den deutschen Wäldern. Seine ursprünglich einaktige Talentprobe wurde bei der Uraufführung 1884 in Mailand bejubelt, begann dann jedoch ihren Weg durch die Musiktheater in einer überarbeiteten Version. Nun sorgt das Label Opera Rara für eine echte Renaissance dieses Juwels der Operngeschichte: Die blendend besetzte Weltersteinspielung der Urfassung unter der Leitung von Mark Elder folgt als erste der neuen wissenschaftlichen Edition.

It's time for another Merry Xmas round the jukebox, love songs to Santa and even one Christmas hymn. It's all in the name of rhythm and blues, doo wop and even a touch of rock and roll. In this new collection of 24 tracks there are no less than five tracks by the great Charles Brown. This popular blues balladeer was the undisputed king of Christmas blues from the 1940s until his death. The most recent recording comes from the late, great, queen of soul, Aretha Franklin who was having a "Blue Holiday" in 1962. We end this excursion into Christmas R&B, until perhaps next year, with the great blues guitarist Freddie King claiming "I Hear Jingle Bells" and we naturally hope you do too.

Firkušný won praise from his famous colleague Vladimir Horowitz, who once exclaimed, "Rudolf Firkušný can play Schubert, that's for sure. I heard him on the radio this afternoon … playing the three Klavierstücke. Beautiful!" And the noted piano teacher and critic David Dubal called Firkušný "the preeminent Czech pianist of the twentieth century." Firkušný died in Staatsburg, New York in 1994.[4] In 2007, his ashes and those of his wife, Tatiana Nevolová Firkušný, were reburied together in an honorary place at the Central Cemetery in Brno, close to his first teacher, Janáček, and directly next to the grave of Czech composer Jan Novák. In 2012, coinciding with the 100th anniversary of his birth, there was a large festival held by Brno's Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts to commemorate the centennial, featuring many of his former alumni from the Juilliard School. In 2013, the Prague Spring Festival established the Rudolf Firkušný Piano Festival held in Prague.

Many of you might be coming to Elgar’s great masterpiece Falstaff for the very first time – I truly hope so! It has, undeniably, had a harder time working its way into the consciousness of the ‘Elgar-lover’ than most of his other great works. Often I’ve felt that this is a question that the cognoscenti simply don’t want to wrestle with; ‘how could it possibly be a challenge to comprehend?’ Well, perhaps it’s simply down to the fact that there is a dramatic and wordless narrative that is, initially, difficult to grasp. As Elgar himself identified the four main sections of the work in his note on Falstaff, and also the sections of the Shakespearean drama that they represent, it seemed a logical extension to me to contextualize the music by adding passages of dialogue from the great bard’s, and Elgar’s, inspiration,Henry IV Part 1 and Part 2. With the wonderful contributions of Timothy West and Samuel West, I feel rather vindicated in this view, and I very much hope that its inclusion enhances your enjoyment of this musical masterpiece.

Three L'OiseauLyre albums of chamber music by Couperin, newly remastered and compiled together for the first time, including material new to CD.During the past half-century, Francois Couperin 'the Great' has indeed come to be regarded among the great European composers. Where once he wasdismissed with faint praise as the confectorof trifles to amuse the Sun-King and his court, we now see him more in the round, balancing devotional psalms with bitingly observant galleries of men and women from high and low stations, as keenly interested in the view from his Parisian window as the glitter of Versailles.Dart and his colleagues recorded the pair of 'Suites de violes' in 1957, the scores having only been rediscovered around 40 years previously, but they were enthusiastically promoted by the musicologist Wilfred Mellers, whodeclaredthem to stand as a highlight of Couperin's chamber music.

With this and several other albums issued in 2019, Eloquence celebrates the art of Thurston Dart, the harpsichordist, conductor and editor who played a leading role in the early-music revival in postwar Britain. After his death in 1971 at the age of just 49, his fellow harpsichordist Igor Kipnis paid fulsome tribute to 'a man of many parts', whose 1954 volume on The Interpretation of Musichad attained testamentary authority among his fellow musicians, matched by the skill, style and flourish of his many recordings. 'He was the ideal musicologist-performer.'

Strauss waltzes and polkas in classic Decca 1950s recordings, led to the manner born by the Viennese conductor Josef Krips. Newly remastered from the original tapes –and in the case of two works the shellac discs –this compilation presents recordingsmade in London and Vienna by a conductor born and bred to the rhythms of the Strauss family. Josef Kripscut his teeth as a repetiteurat the Volksoper in Vienna, making his debut there in 1921, before graduating to the more prestigious Staatsoperin 1933. Mozart was forever Krips'smusical god: 'My maxim is that everything has to sound as though it were by Mozart, or it will be a bad performance. When youperform Mozart, everything has to be crystal clear, everything has to be in balance and everything has to have a relaxed sound.'
