One of Vasily Petrenko’s most successful Elgar releases; there’s an edge to the Crouch End Festival Chorus’ performance of Britten’s Saint Nicolas ; Quartetto di Cremona’s new album is nothing if not overflowing with Mediterranean personality

Classical CD Reviews: Petrenko conducts Elgar, Gardner conducts Mendelssohn, and Alain Lefévre’s My Paris Years
Vasily Petrenko’s Elgar disappoints, Edward Gardner’s Mendelssohn excites, and Alain Lefévre’s Paris is delights.
Classical CD Review: Andrew Manze and Vaughan Williams, Andris Nelsons and Anton Bruckner
Andrew Manze and the RLPO have turned in one of the year’s great albums: potent, lyrical, haunting, and timely.
CD Reviews: Petrenko’s Elgar and Orozco-Estrada’s Dvořák
Vasily Petrenko and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra serve up some curious and, from time to time, rather languorous Elgar.
