New Classical Reviews, August 2018

As many places start a new school year in September and many performance groups begin new seasons, why not educate yourself with some music? Here are some suggested study aids recently reviewed by AllMusic’s classical editors. For history, try John Adams’ opera,
Doctor Atomic, which recounts the first American atomic bomb test. For literature, try Liszt’s Faust Symphony, and for philosophy, the writings of Boethius set to music constructed in a contemporaneous manner.

New Classical Reviews

Fans of early vocal music have several new releases to try out, ranging from the music of Guillaume de Machaut to Josquin des Prez to Jacques Arcadelt. For those who appreciate early keyboard music, Christophe Rousset was able to use a delicate harpsichord built in 1652 to record music of François Couperin. If you are looking for music that is thematically related rather than of a particular style or period, there is a double-disc set of Debussy’s mélodies, which frequently refer to evening and night time, and albums of piano nocturnes by David Quigley, Alice Sara Ott, and Dénes Várjon.
