    Sibelius

    Belshazzar's Feast

    £6.99
    Pia Pajala | Turku Philharmonic Orchestra | Leif Segerstam

    Alongside the great symphonies and tone poems, music for the theatre played an important role in Sibelius's development. From exquisite nocturnal tranquillity to the macabre 'Dance of Life', Belshazzar's Feast is an exotic tale of seduction and tragedy to which Sibelius responded with some of his most hauntingly beautiful writing for the stage. The early Menuetto and lively Cortège were considered good enough by the composer to be recycled for further stage productions, while the Overture in E and Scène de Ballet started life as Sibelius's first attempt at composing a symphony.

    Wolf Hall Soundtrack

    £16.99
    Claire van Kampen | Musicians of Shakespeare's Globe | Adrian Woodward | Paul Sharp | Abigail Newman | Tom Lees

    The soundtrack to BBC television series "Wolf Hall" brings King Henry VIII's court to life with dances and songs; some of which were composed by the monarch himself. Filmed in the great historic houses in England, the series features specialist early musicians playing live on set. All the Tudor Music for the production has been carefully sourced and arranged by Claire van Kampen, and recorded with the Musicians of Shakespeare's Globe at the famous Abbey Road Studios, London, England.

    El Maestro, Libro I

    £6.99
    José Antonio Escobar

    Although biographical details of his life remain sketchy, Luys Milán's Libro de música de vihuela de mano intitulado El Maestro is certainly the oldest surviving printed collection of vihuela music. Tuned like the contemporary Renaissance lute, the Spanish vihuela is a guitar-shaped instrument and for it Milán wrote a series of compelling works including fantasias and pavans that maturely fused improvisatory and polyphonic elements. This recording presents all the solo vihuela pieces from the first book of El Maestro in the order in which they appear.

    Villa-Lobos

    Guitar Manuscripts Vol. 3

    £6.99
    Andrea Bissoli | Ensemble Cirandinha | Orquestra Filarmônica de Minas Gerais | Fabio Mechetti

    Musicologist Adrian Thomas considered Bacewicz's string quartets "unrivalled in 20th-century Polish music and... one of the century's most significant contributions to the genre". Her folk-music infused First Quartet dates from student days at the Paris Conservatoire, while exceptional polyphonic skill, intense emotion and playful, high spirits characterize the Third Quartet. Both the Sixth and Seventh Quartets unite tradition with a strikingly effective and highly personal exploration of progressive contemporary techniques.

    Beck

    Symphonies Op. 2

    £6.99
    Thirteen Strings Chamber Orchestra | Kevin Mallon

    Franz Ignaz Beck is increasingly acknowledged as one of the most forward-looking and inventive of mid-eighteenth-century symphonists. A student of the celebrated Johann Stamitz, Beck was trained in Mannheim, a focal point of new approaches to orchestral writing. Although small in scale, his Op. 2 set includes some of the most striking and harmonically daring works of their kind from the period. Further Beck Symphonies may be heard on Naxos 8.553790, 8.554071, 8.570799, 8.573248 and 8.573249.
