Birm­ing­ham Royal Con­ser­va­toire has just an­nounced a new part­ner­ship with Naxos that will give six stu­dents the chance to make de­but record­ings at the col­lege’s Brad­shaw Hall. In what prom­ises to be an in­no­va­tive and fas­ci­nat­ing project, they will record works by Liszt, Scar­latti and Schu­mann, plus world pre­miere record­ings of mu­sic by Holst, Brit­ten and York Bowen.

The Horszowski Trio, fresh from its de­but at London’s Wig­more Hall, has recorded an al­bum for Avie Records. The two-disc re­lease sees record­ings of Robert Schu­mann’s com­plete pi­ano trios. Named a er the late Rus­sian pi­anist, the Horszowski Trio is com­prised of pi­anist Reiko Aizawa, Gram­mynom­i­nated vi­olin­ist Jesse Mills and cel­list Ra­man Ramakrishn­an.

Trum­peter and BBC New Gen­er­a­tion

Artist Si­mon Höfele teamed up with the BBC Scot­tish Sym­phony Or­ches­tra re­cently for record­ings of Haydn and Hum­mel Trum­pet Con­cer­tos. Con­ducted by Dun­can Ward, and recorded in the sub­lime acous­tic of Glas­gow’s City Halls, the fruits of their labour will be re­vealed on disc cour­tesy of Ber­lin Clas­sics in the com­ing months.

Linn Records, which re­cently made its en­tire cat­a­logue avail­able on Ap­ple Mu­sic, has a busy record­ing sched­ule as ever. Robin Tic­ciati con­tin­ues his French com­posers’ se­ries with Du­ru­flé’s re­mark­able Re­quiem, while Trevor Pin­nock and the Royal

Academy of Mu­sic’s soloists’ en­sem­ble, are about to record Józef Ko er’s 1938 ar­range­ment of JS Bach’s Gold­berg Vari­a­tions.

Grammy-win­ning vi­olin­ist James Ehnes con­tin­ues his great work with Onyx Records and could be found at Wya­s­tone’s stu­dio sev­eral times in March and April. To­gether with reg­u­lar record­ing part­ner, pi­anist An­drew Armstrong, he has been cap­tur­ing Beethoven’s com­plete vi­o­lin sonatas for the la­bel. The first of three al­bums is sched­uled for re­lease in Oc­to­ber, with two re­leases pen­cilled for 2020.
