Musical styles blended in several of this month's new releases. There were new recordings of the jazzy music of Russian composer Nikolai Kapustin by pianists Yeol Eum Son and Frank Dupree. Marin Alsop conducted highlights from Gershwin's opera Porgy and Bess, and more Gershwin was found on The Sound of Black and White by Raffi Besalyan. There was also violinist Karen Gomyo performing Piazzolla. If you prefer more traditional classical, there were plenty of other albums from which to choose, including orchestral songs by Wagner and Mahler sung by Anja Harteros, Bach's Orchestral Suites by Concerto Copenhagen, and Haydn's Seven Last words of Christ by Quatuor Debussy (pictured above).
