 Presto Chart, The Presto Chart - September 2022

Our 25 best-selling titles across all formats for September, with Hollywood Soundstage from John Wilson and Sinfonia of London (released at the beginning of the month on Chandos) in first place...

 Presto Editor's Choices, Presto Editor's Choices - September 2022

An irresistible Coleridge-Taylor collection from Chineke!, an exciting all-French programme from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra under their dynamic new Music Director, and an almost unbearably poignant Schwanengesang from Ian Bostridge and Lars Vogt.

 Recording of the Week, Krystian Zimerman performs piano music by Szymanowski

The Polish pianist offers a selection of pieces by his compatriot, in performances that are often highly idiosyncratic yet always thoughtful, intelligent, and full of staggering technical and expressive mastery.

 New Release Round-up, New Release Round-Up - 30th September 2022

Samuel Coleridge-Taylor from Chineke!, an all-French programme from the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and their new Chief Conductor Domingo Hindoyan, Schubert from Ian Bostridge and the late Lars Vogt, and a celebration of neglected French composer Charlotte Sohy from new label La Boîte à Pépites.

 Favourites, Valentyn Sylvestrov at 85

As the Ukrainian composer turns 85, David listens to some of the greatest recordings of his music - by turns introverted and reflective, rapturously spiritual, and politically impassioned.
