Image RECORDING OF THE YEAR + ORCHESTRAL AWARD
Mahler Symphony No. 3

Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra/
Bernard Haitink

Bernard Haitink’s first recording of Mahler's Third Symphony was half a century ago in Amsterdam. The view hasn’t changed too much – a measured survey of the immense opening movement through to a mesmerising account of the great final Adagio – but the playing of the Bavarian Radio Symphony is outstanding, and beautifully captured in concert.

Ein Feste Burg Ist Unser Gott
Luther and the Music of the Reformation: works by Scheidt, Gesius, M Praetorius, Sieffert, Schein et al

Vox Luminis/Lionel Meunier; Bart Jacobs (organ)

Music played an important part in Lutheran worship. Marking the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Vox Luminis and director Lionel Meunier offer an illuminating exploration of Luther’s hymns and Gospel translations in settings by many of JS Bach’s predecessors. All is warmly performed, and wonderfully presented in a generously illustrated book format.

Fagerlund & Aho
Fagerlund Bassoon Concerto, ‘Mana’; Woodlands
Aho Bassoon Concerto; Solo V

Bram Van Sambeek (bassoon); Lahti Symphony Orchestra/Dima Slobodeniouk and Okko Kamu

All Who Wander
Mahler: Rückert Lieder and other songs
Sibelius: Selected songs
Dvorák: Gypsy songs

Jamie Barton (mezzo-soprano), Brian Zeger (piano)

The long wait for Jamie Barton’s debut recital disc was worth every minute. Barton, double winner of 2013’s BBC Cardiff Singer of the World, is wonderfully idiomatic in Dvorák and Sibelius, and she and her pianist give a performance of Mahler’s Rückert Lieder that is up there with the greatest.

Julien Brocal
Chopin 24 Preludes, Op. 28; Piano Sonata No. 2, Op. 35 (Marche funèbre)

Julien Brocal (piano)

'This double debut – Julien Brocal's first CD and the launch of a new label devoted mainly to young artists – proves that even in a very crowded field there are new things to say,' writes our reviewer John Allison.

'Even more to the point is the fact that this young French pianist says them with complete naturalness, for there is nothing contrived or attention-seeking about his approach to such well-known repertoire.'

Elliott Carter
Carter Interventions; Dialogues; Dialogues II; Soundings; Two Controversies and a Conversation; Instances; Epigrams

Pierre-Laurent Aimard (piano); Colin Currie (percussion), Isabelle Faust (violin), Jean-Guihen Queyras (cello); Birmingham Contemporary Music Group; BBC Symphony Orchestra/Oliver Knussen

There couldn't be a better tribute to Elliott Carter than this recording, featuring five premieres and an all-star line-up of performers. It's a dazzling showcase of the American composer's late music.

It would be hard to ask for better performances. Pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard is fiery yet delicate, well matched by percussionist Colin Currie. There's virtuosity aplenty from the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Birmingham Contemporary Music Group under Oliver Knussen, and with the piano trio, Epigrams, Aimard, violinist Isabelle Faust and cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras sign off in impeccable style.

Maximum Reger
Works plus documentary – Max Reger: The Last Giant

Frauke May (mezzo-soprano), Julius Berger (cello), Markus Becker, Rudolf Meister (piano), Graham Barber, Bernard Haas (organ) et al; Aris Quartett; WDR Funkhausorchester/Wayne Marshall

Max Reger is one of the most unjustly neglected composers in music history. That's the contention of producer Will Fraser, of Fugue State Films, whose mighty six-DVD set devoted to the German more than meets his ambition to correct that wrong.

In an era when fewer and fewer classical music documentaries are being made, Maximum Reger pulls out all the stops. Everything about the project is impressive, its scale and scope a suitable match for this gargantuan late-Romantic composer.
