Including Dario Marianelli commissioned Pride and Prejudice - Suite to build on 97m streams for Dawn, Thibaudet's own transcriptions of Disney's When You Wish Upon a Star and Barber's Adagio for Strings. © Decca Classics

The world-leading choral ensemble blazes a trail with brand new repertoire for voices with their transportive and meditative new album. It transcends genres and embraces renowned composers of alternative, film and contemporary classical music. Mesmerising instrumental and electronic tracks are presented in new choral arrangements, including five brand new works with spine-tingling choral sounds with otherworldly strings and bowed vibraphones. © Decca Records

Born in 2007 in Melbourne, Christian Li is said to be the youngest person ever to record Vivaldi's Four Seasons violin concertos. Li's performance is a bit of a mixed bag, but it has the virtue of being entirely his own; there is nothing of the mechanical prodigy here. It's essentially a reading in the old symphony orchestra style, with few concessions to the historical performance movement. Li offers big, dramatized realizations of Vivaldi's seasonal effects and some rather garish sforzandos, but he leads the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra himself (his control of the group is excellent in what must have been highly unfamiliar terrain), and he has a Baroque-style continuo that is allowed improvisatory room; there seems to be both a harpsichord and a lute. Li is brilliant in Vivaldi's storm passages, but where he really shines is in the four encores. These include a folk-flavored piece by composer Li Zili, the whiz-bang La Ronde des Lutins of Antonio Bazzini, a suitably singing arrangement of the Méditation from Massenet's Thaïs, and, best of all, the Tambourin Chinois, Op. 3, of Fritz Kreisler, which sounds for all the world as though it was written expressly for Li. The virtuoso passages on the album have real flair, but perhaps the most promising thing here is the evidence of a strong creative spirit. Li is definitely a youngster to watch. © TiVo
