2013 marks the 100th birthday of Benjamin Britten and EMI pays tribute to this key figure of 20th century music with the release of a brand new recording of his War Requiem, with a stellar line up of soloists - Anna Netrebko, Ian Bostridge and Thomas Hampson.

Considered to be Britten's crowning choral work, and for some possibly the pinnacle of his entire output, it was commissioned for the festival marking the consecration of the new cathedral at Coventry.

Max Bruch (1838-1920) was born in Cologne and is remembered mostly for his first Violin Concerto with an extremely beautiful slow movement written in 1868 and his Scottish Fantasy, also for Violin and orchestra, dating from 1880 is increasing in popularity. His music, whilst it has echoes of Mendelssohn and Schumann, foreshadows Bruckner and the late German Romantics. It is therefore most useful to have a collection of his three symphonies to help us assess of the development of the Symphony in the later half of the nineteenth century. The first dates from the same year as the famous Violin Concerto and was dedicated to Brahms who was Bruch's elder by five years, the second from four years later. The last had its premiere in 1882 in New York whilst the composer was nearing the end of an unhappy three years as music director of the Liverpool Philharmonic Society. The set is completed by recordings making their first appearance on CD, firstly the Concerto for two pianos which it is believed to date from 1911 (it does not appear in the list of works as part of the article in the New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians published in 1980) and secondly two sets of piano works dating from when Bruch was in his early twenties.

Joshua Bell (violin/director)
Academy of St. Martin in the Fields

Awards
Grammy Awards 61st Awards (2019) Nominee - Classical Instrumental Solo

A new Sony Classical release from Grammy Award-winning violinist Joshua Bell showcases two masterpieces from romantic composer Max Bruch. The album features Bell's first recording of the virtuosic Scottish Fantasy as well as a new recording of the Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor, which he first recorded over thirty years ago with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and Sir Neville Marriner. Now, as Music Director of the Academy, Bell both performs and directs the orchestra and offers a fresh take on the Bruch Concerto in addition to a thrilling performance of the Scottish Fantasy. In recent years, the Scottish Fantasy has become a favourite performance piece for Bell and his affection for the piece runs deep and with good reason: “My father's descendants were from Scotland, and I grew up hearing stories about how my great- grandfather and great-great-grandfather fought in the Black Watch in Scotland. My dad was proud of his Scottish heritage, and this connection makes the melodies in Bruch's Scottish Fantasy even more meaningful to me.” The Fantasy bristles with the snap and lilt of Scottish folk songs and Bell goes on to say “It is one of the most beautiful and touching pieces I know, and so brilliantly orchestrated. It is a unique 'concerto,' not following the traditional three-movement form. Each of its four movements tells a story.”

Bell recalls how Bruch's ever-popular Violin Concerto No.1 was the first major concerto he learned as an 11-year-old. “This piece is connected to so many memories!” Bell mentions that the great nineteenth-century violinist, Joseph Joachim, who figured prominently in Bell's recent Sony Classical release, For the Love of Brahms, placed Bruch's concerto in the same league as those of Beethoven, Brahms, and Mendelssohn and called it “the most seductive of violin concertos.” Bell says, “It is a huge audience favorite because it is so rich and lush. It has excitement, power, passion, and intimacy--it's got everything!” “Now after more than thirty years of performing this concerto and with a variety of conductors, I am still inspired by the work, and I continue to find myself exploring fresh ideas and new possibilities for expression. As Music Director, I now have the opportunity to conduct while playing the solo part and it actually brings a whole new dimension to this piece. The Academy of St Martin in the Fields has become my musical family over the past decade, and I feel we have special chemistry!'

Bryn Terfel (bass-baritone)
The Mormon Tabernacle Choir

Meeting of Titans: America's best-loved choir meets the world's favourite bass-baritone: Bryn Terfel and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir join forces in an inspiring survey of classical, spiritual, Welsh and American folk songs

Bryn Terfel has sold over 2.3 million records worldwide

The lead track, the eponymous Homeward Bound, is a stunning emotional show stopper

Recorded in Salt Lake City in May 2013, this “event” record is set to thrill classical audiences on both sides of the Atlantic - and beyond

Welsh bass-baritone powerhouse Bryn Terfel unites with the historic Mormon Tabernacle Choir (MTC)

Known as “America's Choir”, and currently the best-selling classical act in the US, this extraordinary American musical institution was founded 166 years ago by American Pioneers, migrating at the time from the Midwest to Salt Lake Valley. Many of the original Pioneers included Mormons hailing from Wales - a connection that Bryn will make through music and song on this popular vocal and choral programme

Features spectacular new arrangements from the pen of the award-winning MTC Musical Director Mack Wilberg

Also features special guests Tamara Mumford and Sissel Kyrkjebø

Repertoire drawn from American spirituals, Welsh favourites, sacred arias, popular hymns and the world of musicals

Prepare for the thrilling prospect of the 360-voice Mormon Tabernacle Choir and a full symphony orchestra, united in song with the acclaimed bass-baritone Bryn Terfel - a unique event and a unique album.

This is a 'Sony Classical' re-issue to mark the canonization of Pope John Paul II on April 27. To honour him, Plácido Domingo will perform repertoire from this album at the ceremony in Poznan, Poland. It includes songs inspired by the Poems of John Paul II - Karol Wojtyła. Featuring guest artists Josh Groban, Katherine Jenkins, Andrea Bocelli and Vanessa Williams. 'These songs have enormous significance for me ... They will speak not only to religious people but to anyone who respects that uniquely great man, John Paul II, who chose to dedicate his life to the service of humanity and of God.' Plácido Domingo. One of the most beloved spiritual leaders of the modern era, Pope John Paul II was not only a humanitarian and theologian, but an artist and author. In his pre-Papal life as Karol Wojtyła he wrote plays, essays, and, most notably, poetry. For this CD, Plácido Domingo and his son Plácido Domingo Jr. used a selection of not only religious poetry, but also poems about love and people's daily life.

'Concerto Köln - the silver-toned Rolls-Royce of period ensembles - handles this journey with suave style and flawless control…Valer Sabadus makes for a refined Farinelli, and where his smoky voice lacks in power, it gains in agility. He breezes through the coloratura arias, with their virtuoso roulades and vertiginous leaps…He really shines, though, in the more intimate arias.' BBC Music Magazine
