This album stands out from the common run of Gabrieli releases in several ways. One is simply that the quintessentially British cathedral sound of the Choir of King's College, Cambridge, with its delicate boy sopranos, is not what most listeners will be expecting from music written for the sumptuous and complex sound environment of St. Mark's in Venice, with its big ensembles of multiple choruses and brass groups. Obviously your own reaction to hearing this music transplanted to pure English cathedral ground will be personal, but don't dismiss it out of hand; the choir at St. Mark's early in the 17th century was smaller than it became later on, and it is likely that it involved the participation of boys. The instrumental group, Her Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts, may also be closer to what Gabrieli used than are the common glittery brass ensembles. Second, the album contains a reconstruction of the Christmas motet Quem vidistis pastores?, which has come down to us in a version from the 1615 Symphoniae Sacrae that the performers argue was much simplified. The new version is effective, breaking up the texture of the whole. Third, the SACD engineering work from the choir's own engineering staff is superb. This sounds like no other Gabrieli recording you've ever heard, with precise interactions and delicate boy solos replacing the usual wash of rich sound, and whatever you think of the whole interpretation, you're likely to find it impressive -- and the more impressive the better your equipment. You also get a Blu-ray disc of the performance for the full effect. A real engineering tour de force, this album represents something new for the Choir of King's College, and a new perspective on Gabrieli.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 Years of Freedom

Italian violinist Fabio Biondi – famous especially for his interpretation of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons with his orchestra, Europa Galante – refuses to be compartmentalised. We take a look back at the career of a musician blessed with a supple mind and an extraordinary talent for the Baroque violin.

The Earth’s Song: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.
