The soloists are: ANNA MARIA BONDI (soprano), CLAUDIA EDER (mezzo), AXEL REICHARDT (tenor) and KÜRT KRATTINGER (bass) with the Chorale Philippe Caillard and L'Orchestre des Solistes de Paris conducted by H C Fantapie.

Bach: The Six Partitas (2CD)
Though published as Bach's Opus 1, the Partitas were composed as Bach was approaching 40 and working in Leipzig. Their varied and changeable movement styles differentiate them considerably from the structure of works such as the French and English Suites, which are otherwise like sets of dance movements.

Antony Hopkins - A Portrait (2CD)
ARTISTS include: Lesley-Jane Rogers (soprano), James Gilchrist (tenor), John Turner (recorder), Paul Barritt (violin), Matthew Jones (viola), Philip Fowke (piano), Michael Hampton (piano), Janet Simpson (piano), Antony Hopkins (speaker/piano); Jeremy Brett, Stephanie Voss, Phillada Sewell, Elizabeth Boyd, Stephen Manton, Eric Shilling

Antony Hopkins is a phenomenon - a fact which escapes much of the public and even press who still confuse him with the actor (Anthony). Composer, pianist, conductor, broadcaster, lecturer, author ... a true man of music. A livewire at the age of 91, (as we write in May 2012), his genius has suffered from fickle fashion, his 'serious' music being lyrical and tuneful though certainly deep and complex; his lighter music now seen as 'period' - and just ripe for redicovery. This double album contains much fine music including eight pieces written by top British composers as tributes to Antony. For all interested in the evolution of 20th century music this album will be invaluable, and it's also made with wit and humour, to suit the character of Hopkins himself.
Tracks (by Antony Hopkins):
Sonata for Viola and Piano
A Humble Song to the Birds (tenor and piano)
Partita in G minor for solo violin
Rondo from Piano Sonata no. 2 in F sharp minor
Piano Sonata no. 3 in C sharp minor
Suite for descant recorder and piano
Pastiche Suite for recorder and piano
Three French Folksongs (soprano and piano)
Tango for piano
Three Seductions, for recorder and piano
First Love, for soprano and piano
I've Lost my Love, for soprano, recorder and piano
A Melancholy Song, for soprano, recorder and piano
Four Dances, for recorder and piano
Three Poems

Eight Tributes:
Andrew Plant: On How to Sing
David Matthews: A Little Pastoral
David Dubery: Evening in April
Anthony Gilbert: Above all That
Gordon Crosse: CantAHta
David Ellis: Head Music
Joseph Phibbs: Pierrot
Elis Pehkonen: Pieds en l'air
BONUS TRACKS:
