A few of this month’s classical highlights embrace new recordings by veteran performers, but in addition new music. Angela Hewitt (pictured) launched her second quantity of the Mozart piano sonatas, whereas Heinz Holliger put collectively a recital of French, primarily twentieth century music for oboe. New Millennium options twenty first century music composed for the St. John’s School Choir, and consists of the final recordings made with its now former conductor Andrew Nethsingha. That is just some examples of the variety of latest albums.
