Vadim Repin, BBCSSO, Donald Runnicles
MacMillan: Violin Concerto & Symphony No.4

The world premiere CD release of two major works by Sir James MacMillan. The violin concerto was written for Vadim Repin, and the 4th symphony is dedicated to Donald Runnicles. Released in October


Ehnes Quartet
Schubert & Sibelius
ONYX4163

Schubert's 'Death & the Maiden' Quartet and Sibelius's' Intimate Voices' Quartet are unusual works to find together on a CD, but strangely the musical 'chemistry' works superbly, especially when performed by the Ehnes Quartet. For lovers of the quartet repertoire this album is a real treat! To be released in November.


Kuss Quartet, Mojca Erdmann
Brahms & Schoenberg
ONYX4166

The Kuss Quartet turn to Brahms and Schoenberg for their new ONYX disc. They are joined by soprano Mojca Erdmann in a programme that includes Brahms 3rd string Quartet and three of his Lieder, and the 2nd String Quartet of Schoenberg. The younger composer was heavily influenced by Brahms, and called him 'Brahms the progressive' in an essay from 1933. Comparing and contrasting the music of these great masters is a fascinating experience - just 32 years separates the to string quartets...


Ralph Kirshbaum & Shai Wosner
Beethoven: The Complete works for cello & piano
ONYX4178

Recorded at at London's Wigmore Hall, Kirshbaum and Wosner decide to record the 5 sonatas and the sets of variations after a tour that took them across the US and the UK. Kirshbaum brings a lifetime of insight and profound love for this music and is superbly partnered by Wosner (a former BBC NGA and a BBT artist) who has firmly established himself as a major interpreter of Beethoven as well as Schubert, Mozart and Haydn, not to mention composers such as Ligeti. This is music making of the highest order. To be released in November


Leonard Elschenbroich, Petr Limonov
Schnittke
ONYX4180

One of the most exciting cellists of his generation, Leonard Elschenbroich has long admired the music of Alfred Schnitke and his third album on ONYX is dedicated to this Russian master. Elschenbroich's own musical tribute to Schnittke is coupled with the Sonata No.1, Suite in an Olden Style, Memorium Oleg Kagan and Musica Nostalgia. To released in November.
