Genre: Classical / Label: Atoll

Morgen is a collection designed to share the pleasures of beautiful and emotional songs and these melodic lines transfer easily to cello. Joyce glories in the soaring vocal phrases with a rich vibrato-laden tone and the absence of words is forgotten by the listener. De Lisle’s pianism is subtle and spacious and the players work together with a flexible intimacy ideally suited to the music.The opening seven songs by Brahms are a highlight. For this music full of passionate grief and poignant yearning Joyce uses a huge range of timbre and dynamics, de Lisle a light and easy flow in accompaniment. The Wiegenlied, famous as “Brahms’ Lullaby”, ends the group, the cello in the foreground as singer and both musicians playing with loving gentleness.

Genre: Classical / Label: BIS

The extant music for violin by Franz Schubert fits comfortably on two volumes, and Ariadne Daskalakis released the first volume of her survey in 2019, to critical acclaim. The Vol. 1 included works for violin and piano as well as three pieces with orchestral accompaniment, in performances described in "The Strad" as having ‘a litheness and shimmering delight that capture the music’s innate charm and dance-like vivacity with a beguiling sureness of touch’.The second installment focuses on the chamber music with piano, and once again Daskalakis is joined by Paolo Giacometti, playing a fortepiano by Salvatore Lagrassa. The instrument, of the Viennese school, was built around 1815 and is thus almost exactly contemporary with the sonatas recorded here, the ones in D major and A minor dating from 1816 and the Sonata in A major from the following year. Schubert, who was around twenty years old at the time, had learned the violin from an early age, but the sonatas were probably intended for his older brother Ferdinand, who led the family string quartet in which Franz played the viola.

Genre: Classical / Label: BIS

When deciding on the repertoire for his début recital, James Newby’s first choice fell on An die ferne Geliebte, songs that he had been performing ever since the beginning of his career. But Beethoven’s song cycle – and perhaps even more so the quasi-operatic Adelaide – also sets a tone for the entire programme, that of longing and of wanting to be elsewhere, near the distant beloved. These are emotions that Schubert, perhaps more than any other composer, has plumbed in depth, and Newby went on to select five of his songs that in various ways depict the restlessness and loneliness of the eternal wanderer.Mahler is another composer who knew something about longing – for instance that it can be deadly, which he demonstrated with his Zu Straßburg auf der Schanz, in which a soldier awaits execution after trying to desert to his homeland while the piano imitates the muffled rolling of drums.

The 101 Strings Orchestra established a reputation as one of the finest ensembles in the easy listening genre. Yet the group actually never existed as a performing orchestra: it was a recording-only ensemble made up of musicians whose personnel often changed from one recording to the next. Moreover, many early albums released under the name 101 Strings were actually reissues of recordings made by such groups as the Rio Carnival Orchestra, New World Orchestra, and others. Under its now-familiar name, more than 100 recordings were issued by two labels – both of which owned the name, hired the players in the ensemble, and, most importantly, provided for the music arrangements that have been crucial to maintaining the orchestra's familiar sound – a dreamy, silken sound not dissimilar to that of Mantovani.
