Paul HINDEMITH (1895-1963) Complete Works for Violin & Piano - Roman Mints (violin) Alexander Kobrin (piano) rec. 2017 QUARTZ QTZ2132 [77:13] [SSi] A wonderful disc for anyone looking for a disc of Hindemith’s four sonatas for violin and piano.

Joseph MARX (1882-1964) Eine Herbstsymphonie - Graz PO/Johannes Wildner rec. 2018 CPO 555 262-2 [67:00] [JW] A triumph.

Giacomo PUCCINI (1858-1924) Manon Lescaut - Licia Albanese (soprano) Jussi Bj鰎ling (tenor) Metropolitan Opera O & Ch/Dimitri Mitropoulos rec. 1956 PRISTINE AUDIO PACO158 [78:51 + 48:08] [RMo] A sparkling performance, capturing the best of Bj鰎ling’s appearances as Des Grieux in excellent, refurbished sound.

Anton RUBINSTEIN (1829-1894) Piano Concertos Nos 3 & 5 - Anna Shelest (Piano) Estonian Ntl SO/Neeme J鋜vi rec. 2018 SOREL CLASSICS SCCD014 [72:08] [RC] You will not be let down by these impressive performances.

Mieczysław WEINBERG (1919-1996) Symphonies Nos 2 & 21 - Gidon Kremer (violin) City of Birmingham SO, Kremerata Baltica/Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla (soprano) rec. 2018 DEUTSCHE GRAMMOPHON 483 6566 [34:21 + 54:38] [JQ] A handsome tribute to Mieczysław Weinberg in his centenary year.

Michael Fabiano (tenor) Opera arias by Verdi & Donizetti - London Voices, London PO/Enrique Mazzola rec. 2018 PENTATONE PTC5186750 SACD [57.03] [MC] Fabiano provides some impressively dramatic performances of these arias.

Amanda Mole (organ) Laureate recital rec. 2017 NAXOS 8.573912 [59:52] [MR] A prize-winner’s recital which possibly does not show us her full potential.

Transformations Works by Dove, Jongen & Liszt - Alexander Ffinch (organ) rec. 2018 DIVINE ART DDA25193 [62:05] [JF] An enormously satisfying CD.
