Our classical editors' November explorations stretched from the keyboard genre, which included a new Angela Hewitt recording of Bach's partitas and Pierre Hantaï playing Scarlatti, to regional studies like Christopher Croisé's album of Russian cello music or Semyon Bychkov's box set of Tchaikovsky symphonies and concertos. From the Baroque era, the Theatre of the Ayre gives us a 17th Century Playlist, while La Nuova Musica gives us Gluck's opera Orfeo ed Euridice. Contemporary selections include orchestral works by Peter Eötvös and new music for violin and electronics with Jennifer Koh (pictured).
