Harmonia Mundi

Described by the New York Times as “one of Europe’s finest independent record companies”, harmonia mundi’s origins date back half a century when, in 1958, a French journalist with connections to the book trade, Bernard Coutaz, decided to found his own publishing house for music. A year later the label had released its first recording, Chants From The Slavonic Liturgy.

 Recording of the Week, Les Siècles perform Mahler's symphonic poem, Titan

François-Xavier Roth and his period-instrument orchestra perform Mahler's "tone poem in the form of a symphony in two parts and five movements", an early version of his First Symphony.

 Recording of the Week, Schumann from Matthias Goerne and Leif Ove Andsnes

The German bass-baritone brings near-Wagnerian intensity to Schumann's two great cycles of 1840, yet he and Andsnes are at their most spellbinding in the introspective songs.
