"Wonderful Mystery", the story of Christ: to some, a real historical figure, to others, the son of God, and to others, an invention by the first Christians – for centuries Europeans have been cordially killing each other over these distinctions. Music, well-known for softening people's attitudes, has been played to celebrate the birth of Christ for centuries; and since the invention of musical notation there have existed many works celebrating the Nativity. The Huelgas Ensemble – wonderful for sure, but there's no mystery about their seriously hard musical and musicological work – are offering us here a range of Christmas pieces, starting with the late Middle Ages, around 1350, up to the start of the Renaissance: either anonymous or signed by Jean Mouton. There follows a broad selection of pieces from the Renaissance itself, be it Flemish, French or Spanish: Sweelinck, Lésbio, Manchicourt, de Weert. Almost as an aside, the Huelgas Ensemble offer us a few neo-Medieval forays, with British organist and church musician Bertram Luard-Selby and, more uniquely, Peter Cornelius, the author of the comic opera Der Barbier von Bagdad, incredible quantities of Lieder, but also a collection of Christmas songs, from which is drawn Three Kings, also written in a neo-historical style. © SM/Qobuz

Richard Wigmore explores the vocal form that was employed so gloriously by JS Bach

Jorge Bolet, the Epitome of Franz Liszt

Franz Liszt’s music re-emerged in the early 1980’s and for once it was played in a way that was both poetic and lyrical, rather than simply getting the notes out. Jorge Bolet recorded a ground-breaking anthology of the Hungarian composer for DECCA, as well as other recordings for the Spanish label ENSAYO, for RCA in the 1970’s, for EVEREST in 1960, and studio and radio recordings in the 1950’s.

Ed Banger, 15 years of freedom

The iconic label of the French electro scene, Ed Banger − masterfully led by Pedro Winter − celebrated its 15-year anniversary in 2018 by having their most iconic titles revisited by a classical orchestra. This is the perfect opportunity to look back on the discography of a label that, whilst having been very popular for a long period of time, has undoubtedly mastered the art of going against the current.
