Naxos new releases March 2015

We are very pleased to share with you the March 2015 issue of New on Naxos, presenting a broad selection of exciting new releases that includes world première recordings from around the globe! Our monthly spotlight release is the first recording of the complete original uncut version of Rossini’s opera “Guillaume Tell.”

Other highlights include the second volume of John Knowles Paine’s orchestral works, with the Ulster Orchestra, directed by JoAnn Falletta; a wide-ranging programme of English music for strings, performed by the English Chamber Orchestra and featuring Julian Lloyd Webber as soloist and conductor, including world première recording of Howard Goodall’s “And the Bridge is Love” and William Lloyd Webber’s “The Moon”. This is Julian Lloyd Webber’s first recording as a conductor after his retirement as a cellist last year due to injury. We also have the seldom-performed orchestral works by Georges Bizet, including “Roma”, “Marche funèbre” and “Overture in A”; the world première recording of Russian poet Mikhail Alexeevich Kuzmin’s musical compositions; and a collection of Carl Czerny’s brilliant, but largely unknown concert works, performed by pianist Rosemary Tuck, accompanied by the English Chamber Orchestra conducted by Richard Bonynge.
