This month's new releases

A fusion—on the very grandest scale—of epic symphony, cantata and tone-poem: July's magnificent Record of the Month offers a thrilling ride across the wide open spaces of Sibelius's Kullervo. Thomas Dausgaard conducts the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Benjamin Appl and Helena Juntunen take on the roles of the doomed siblings, and the Lund Male Chorus narrates the action in an idiomatic, galvanic account of this unique work. Janáček The diary of one who disappeared & other works is also characteristic of its composer's absolutely inimitable voice. Nicky Spence ardently retells the tale of the village boy who abandons home and family for illicit love, with Julius Drake presiding over a fascinating all-Janáček programme. The selection of pungent, anarchic 'nursery rhymes' and 'folk poetry songs', channelling the thwarted inner child in us all, should not be missed.

Hyperion's Classical Piano Concerto series reaches volume six this month, Howard Shelley and the London Mozart Players presenting Cramer Piano Concertos Nos 4 & 5. This is music from a London-based friend and contemporary of Beethoven and will appeal strongly to anyone who responds to the Viennese classicism of the period. And with Parry Piano Trio No 2 & Piano Quartet the Leonore Piano Trio releases a successor to their much-praised earlier volume. If that had listeners 'purring with satisfaction'—in the words of Gramophone's reviewer—this one is sure to elicit even more agreeable responses.

Handel's Queens is a new double album from Signum Classics and London Early Opera. Under the direction of Bridget Cunningham, sopranos Lucy Crowe and Mary Bevan revel in the exquisite repertory which was the showground for Italian divas Faustina and Cuzzoni, the stars of Handel's Royal Academy and the talk of London society.
