Each of these discs which have been highly praised by the critics, receiving no less than two Grammy Award nominations has also included contemporary works, resulting in striking resonances between music from across more than half a millennium.

Ysaÿe's Sonatas for solo violin were sketched out in a fevered twenty-four hours during the summer of 1923, a response to the question of whyin over two hundred yearsno one had attempted to follow the path forged by Johann Sebastian Bach. Each of these six new Sonatas is dedicated to and customized around the playing style of a contemporary violinist, and as such they present formidable challenges. Russian virtuoso Alina Ibragimova , whose earlier recording of the Bach Sonatas was revelatory, turns out performances fully worthy of this distinguished ancestry.

Peter Boyer is one of the most frequently performed American orchestral composers of his generation, widely admired not least for his GRAMMY®-nominated 'Ellis Island: The Dream of America' (Naxos 8.559246). The composer writes, "The five works included on this recording represent a cross-section of my orchestral music. 'Three Olympians' reflects my interest in mythology and history. Often I have received invitations to compose music for celebratory concerts, and three of the works included here – 'Silver Fanfare,' 'Festivities' and 'Celebration Overture' – were created for such occasions."

Hyperion is delighted to present the debut recording of the wonderful young harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani. He was the first harpsichordist to be named a BBC New Generation Artist or to be awarded a fellowship prize by the Borletti- Buitoni Trust. Here Mahan Esfahani has recorded CPE Bach's six 'Württemberg' sonatas, which were written in 17423 and published in 1744, and his thrillingly intense performances make the best possible case for this dramatic, beautifully written, endlessly imaginative but for some reason under-performed music.

The Tapiola Sinfonietta here performs Kalevi Ahos three chamber symphonies: three works that stretch the expressive capabilities of a string orchestra, and are thus highly demanding for the players. The solo alto saxophone part in Chamber Symphony No.3 was written for the soloist John-Edward Kelly who appears here. Aho describes the piece as a hybrid of chamber symphony and saxophone concerto. The Tapiola Sinfonietta has earned high praise from reviewers around the world for its recordings ranging from Arvo Pärt to Saint-Saëns and von Weber. The conductors Jean-Jacques Kantorow and Stefan Asbury are both close collaborators with the orchestra.
