In October 2016, to bring his acclaimed Mendelssohn symphonies cycle to a rousing conclusion, Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the London Symphony Orchestra – accompanied by Lucy Crowe, Jurgita Adamonytė, Michael Spyres and the Monteverdi Choir – gave two performances of the composer’s symphony-cantata, ‘Lobgesang’. Also known as ‘Hymn of Praise’, it sits slightly uneasily with Mendelssohn’s four other symphonies, with its extended last movement involving soloists and chorus. However, the idea was not without precedent – the work has its roots in both Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony (‘Choral’), and Berlioz’s Roméo et Juliette.

The all star ensemble consists of pianist Steven Feifke, bassist Marco Panascia, and drummer Jake Goldbas, vocalist Ioana Vintu, and trumpeter Scott Wendholt. First Things First is an exhibition of equal parts musical depth and stylistic versatility, featuring an exciting array of original music written to showcase the band doing what they do best - letting loose.

"Beginning of Things" is the second album from American country music singer Charlie Worsham. It follows 2013's "Rubberband", which received widespread acclaim. American Songwriter calls Worsham, "the sort of triple threat artist that seems in short supply on Music Row these days. He writes well, sings well, and is a skilled and tasteful guitarist to boot", while Rolling Stone asserts, "A fleet-fingered guitarist and empathetic vocalist, his talent is reminiscent of a young Keith Urban in all the best ways".
