This solo release from Elizabeth Joy Roe and the London Symphony Orchestra under Emil Tabakov couples two of the 20th century’s greatest piano concertos by Britten and Barber. Roe has been performing both works since a student at Julliard and has extensively studied the intriguing parallels between the two composers. The programme is completed with solo piano nocturnes by each composer: Britten’s Night Piece and Barber’s Nocturne, Homage to John Field, widely considered the father of the nocturne.

Everybody will know by now that Elizabeth Wallfisch has a special interest, affection and regard for the 17th- and 18th-century Italian violin schools. She has already recorded much music by the likes of Tartini, Corelli, Locatelli and others with her group, The Locatelli Trio, and also with The Raglan Baroque Players under Nicholas Kraemer. Here is a varied and fascinating collection of pieces by some of the lesser-known composers from a generation or two earlier than those composers.

The violin concertos here are not the familiar pair in A minor and E. Bach composed a number of concertos for orchestral instruments and later transcribed them as keyboard concertos. Reversing Bach’s procedure, Wilfried Fischer has taken the harpsichord versions and from them has reconstructed the originals. BWV 1056 is a transposed transcription of the Keyboard Concerto in F minor (though New Grove identifies the outer movements as being from a lost oboe concerto). The D minor work is also usually heard in its keyboard adaptation. The concerto in C minor for two harpsichords appears in its original instrumentation for violin and oboe, the soloists here being perfectly balanced for clarity of line. It was Tovey who suggested that the A major concerto may have been intended for the oboe d’amore, an instrument pitched between the oboe proper and the cor anglais.

Londra, anni Sessanta. Sono trascorsi vent'anni da quando Julius è venuto a mancare, ma il suo ultimo gesto eroico ha lasciato un segno indelebile nelle vite di chi gli era vicino. Emma, la figlia minore, ventisette anni, lavora nella casa editrice di famiglia e non mostra alcun interesse verso il matrimonio. Al contrario, Cressida, la maggiore, è troppo occupata a struggersi a causa dei suoi amanti, spesso uomini sposati, per concentrarsi sulla carriera di pianista. Nel frattempo Esme, la vedova di Julius, ancora attraente alla soglia dei sessant'anni, rifugge la solitudine perdendosi nella routine domestica della sua bellissima casa color rosa pesca. E poi c'è Felix, ex amante di Esme e suo unico vero amore, che l'ha lasciata quando il marito è scomparso e torna in scena dopo vent'anni di assenza..

Gustav Mahlers Symphony No.4 portrays another side of the composer, one hitherto unseen by the general public. No major battles are fought in this symphony; rather it is a childlike vision of life and a better world in the Hereafter. On this new Pentatone release, Marc Albrecht, its chief conductor, leads the Netherlands Philharmonic in performance of this work. The soprano Elizabeth Watts, whose voice was described by Intl Record Review as one of the most beautiful Britain has produced in a generation, is the touching last movements featured soloist.
