For a single-package introduction to the music of William Walton, it would be hard to do better than this two-disc set from EMI. Not only is the selection impeccable (including the First Symphony, Belshazzar's Feast, the violin and viola concertos, plus the Partita, for orchestra), but the performances, with the composer conducting, are, for all intents and purposes, definitive.

Gyorgy Kosa plays a pivotal role in the history of Hungarian classical music as pianist, composer, and educator. He himself had excellent teachers and so had a bright start to his career. His first was Bela Bartok at the Academy of Music between 1912 and 1916 and for two years he had the pleasure of working under the guidance of Erno Dohnanyi, one of the most charismatic musicians of the twentieth century.

This pair of single-movement viola concertos written for Yuri Bashmet justify his renown. In both, he is able to draw an impressive variety of expressions from his instrument with seeming ease. On the other hand, it's obvious there was a lot of thought and care put into his interpretations. The concertos need thoughtful interpretations by the soloist and the conductor, not because the pieces are necessarily complex in rhythm or harmony, but they are complex in tone and color.

Una scomoda verità che nessuno ammette: la stragrande maggioranza degli uomini in età fertile ha molti meno rapporti sessuali di quelli che vorrebbe o potrebbe avere. Una dura lotta tra uomini e donne che spesso ha queste ultime come vincitrici. Con questo manuale vogliamo ribaltare il risultato. Vi forniremo gli strumenti per difendervi e anche per attaccare. Ci siamo fatti in quattro per voi. Abbiamo ricercato in polverose biblioteche, parlato con donne che la danno e anche con quelle che non la danno.

Is it too early to start my "Recordings of the Year" list? The music and performances on this release are nothing short of a revelation. CPO is always willing to take a chance on a rare composer, and this gamble hits the jackpot. […] This is among the most brilliant, sophisticated music to come out of the Baroque, and Schenck's mastery of the possibilities of the viola da gamba surely rivals Saint-Colombe and Marais. His style shows all the usual French, German, and Italian influences, with a slight emphasis on the French but with a decidedly Germanic attitude toward the dance forms.

Brett Dean (born 1961 in Brisbane, Australia) is beginning to be a much talked about name in the music world. Long established as a fine violist (he was a violist with the Berlin Philharmonic for fifteen years) both as an ensemble member and soloist, Dean is spending more time composing these days than playing.

Going well beyond mere historical interest, this album unveils the charms of a repertoire that delighted Parisian concert halls and salons throughout the 19th century. It demonstrates how the viola finally emerged from the violin’s shadow thanks to virtuoso playing, now resuscitated by the talent of Antoine Tamestit and Cédric Tiberghien in pieces which offer much more than the exquisite languors of bel canto. Italian for 'beautiful singing' or 'beautiful song', the term remains vague and ambiguous but is commonly used to evoke a lost singing tradition; in this case the famed singing tone of Antoine Tamestit's viola, a 1672 Stradivarius, loaned by the Habisreutinger Foundation.
