STU­DIO SE­CRETS

We re­veal who’s record­ing what, and where

BBC Music Magazine - - THE FULL SCORE -

French pi­anist Julien Bro­cal is to fol­low his five-star Chopin de­but CD with a disc of Mom­pou and Ravel. Recorded for Ru­bi­con Clas­sics at Tippet Rise, Mon­tana, Re­flec­tions fea­tures Mom­pou’s Paisajes and Charmes, and Ravel’s Miroirs and Sona­tine.

Chan­dos con­tin­ues to record Richard Rodney Ben­nett’s mu­sic, with a new disc fea­tur­ing the late Bri­tish com­poser’s Marimba Con­certo, Third Sym­phony and Sin­foni­etta. Colin Cur­rie is the soloist, join­ing the BBC Scot­tish Sym­phony Orches­tra and con­duc­tor John Wil­son.

The Lon­don Sym­phony Orches­tra and Joann Fal­letta headed to Abbey Road this August for an al­bum show­cas­ing the Amer­i­can com­poser Ken­neth Fuchs. This Naxos record­ing fea­tures three new con­cer­tos: Spir­i­tu­al­ist (with pi­anist Jef­frey Biegel); Rush (with alto sax­o­phon­ist Ti­mothy Mcal­lis­ter); and Glacier (with elec­tric gui­tarist DJ Sparr).

Vi­o­lin­ist Ara­bella Stein­bacher

re­cently headed to the Ger­man cap­i­tal for her lat­est record­ing with the Berlin Ra­dio Sym­phony Orches­tra and Vladimir Jurowski. Her up­com­ing Pen­ta­tone al­bum will pair Brit­ten and Hin­demith Vi­o­lin Con­cer­tos.

Arvo Pärt’s works for vi­o­lin and orches­tra have taken pride of place on Vik­to­ria Mullova’s mu­sic stand re­cently as she has recorded them for Onyx, with the Es­to­nian Na­tional Sym­phony Orches­tra and Paavo Järvi, in the pres­ence of the com­poser.
