I’m not sure this has been mentioned yet:

Kapustin - complete cello chamber works - on Brilliant.


https://www.prestoclassical.co.uk/classical/products/8363768--kapustin-complete-music-for-cello-and-piano

Interesting, I think - those works that can be heard on you-tube are quite lyrical and beautiful.

Something unexpected and irresistible.

Also, two new LvB Concerto cycles are on the way, one from Jean Francois Heisser and one from Oliver Schynder, the latter's apparently part of a Beethoven project that hopefully ends up like FFG's Beethoven project.

And Gianluca Cascioli has a new LvB sonata disc coming out with Op 106 on it.  I'm pretty sure I am required to buy that one.

His website is awful.  A quick search revealed one LvB (106)/Berg CD from the turn of the century, and one live recording of Opp 106 and 109.  I don't know if the recording of 106 is the same for both discs, or if one of the recordings (assuming they are different) will be in this new cycle, which I had not see until this post.  I know my next optical disc cycle.

What a dreadful pose/setup by the photographer.

Awesome! I've sampled a couple of Kapustin's cello/piano works on YouTube - really enjoyable stuff. I also love his Cello Concerto no. 2, which proves that the cello can be jazzy 8)

This looks like it should be a great release - the Leighton and Jacob VCs have not been recorded before, to my knowledge.

Elvis das Schaf is apparently a German kid's music character. There's a companion CD.

My guess is these are introductions to opera produced for kids.

Ah, so. Thanks, Jeffrey!

I was imagining the Queen of the Night's aria sung in a King of Rock'n'Roll voice ... :o :D

I can attest that the Queen of the Night's second aria is very popular with kids. Both of my daughters tried to warble it when they were young. The elder one, now 32 still erupts in bouts of coloratura from time to time.

Yes, checking out possible other recordings, I found out about that work, but haven´t heard it yet. It´s for cello and strings.

The latest production from the Palazzetto Bru-Zane foundation.  Benjamin Godard Dante



I am surprised that they did not start with Jocelyn which had more success in its time and is still given here in France (rarely).
This is the famous berceuse from this opera sung by Nicolai Gedda

Still a disc that makes me curious!

The new Dessay/Legrand, too - quite enjoyed their first collaboration, I'm a sucker for Legrand (and even more so Legrand/Demy).
