Deluxe edition includes two bonus tracks. 2016 album from the acclaimed jazz artist. Esperanza Spalding presents Emily's D+Evolution, a rekindling of her childhood interest in theater, poetry and movement, which delves into a broader concept of performance. Taking a new approach to her on-stage persona, the remarkable Spalding taps into new creative energy, delivering musical vignettes inspired during a "sleepless night of full moon inspiration." As she puts it, "Emily is my middle name, and I'm using this fresh persona as my inner navigator. This project is about going back and reclaiming un-cultivated curiosity, and using it as a compass to move forward and expand. My hope for this group is to create a world around each song, there are a lot of juicy themes and stories in the music. We will be staging the songs as much as we play them, using characters, video, and the movement of our bodies".

GRAMOPHONE Magazine Editor's Choice - February 2016. Critical acclaim for Jonathan Plowright's two previous discs in his series of Brahms’s works for solo piano includes distinctions such as ‘10/10’ on the website Classics Today and top marks in Diapason as well as ‘Instrumental Choice of the Month’ in BBC Music Magazine. On his third disc Plowright presents the listener with two seemingly contradictory aspects of Johannes Brahms: the deeply serious, emotionally charged, but also meticulously constructed late Piano Pieces of Op. 118 and their precursor Op. 76 appear side by side with the unapologetic extroversion and scintillating verve of most (if not all) of the 16 Waltzes Op. 39, and the flamboyant Variations on a Hungarian Melody. Brahms’s fascination with Hungarian gypsy music stemmed from his friendship with the violinist Eduard Reményi, and found an outlet in several works, among which the Hungarian Dances are probably the most famous.

Jimmy Somerville performed a unique one-off special acoustic set in the summer of 2015 at the famous Stella Polaris festival in Denmark with many of his well-known songs re-imagined. This souvenir release marks the very first time that a solo Jimmy Somerville live release has been made commercially available. The power of Jimmy's voice is evident in these inventive, all new acoustic arrangements of songs drawn from the full breadth of Jimmy's 30 year plus career including his breakthrough singles 'Smalltown Boy' and 'Why?' with Bronski Beat, his UK number one single 'Don't Leave Me This Way' with the Communards and two undisputed highlights, 'Some Wonder' and 'Back To Me' from his recent album 'Homage' - his authentic celebration of the sound of the disco era. Jimmy's vocal range and dexterity is breathtaking and his backing band and singers blend incredibly into a soulful re-working of hits and favourite tracks from his extensive songbook. All in all, Jimmy is a performer and an artist at the pinnacle of his talents and demonstrably determined to have, and to give, a good time to his legions of loyal fans.

Prokofiev started work on his Sixth Symphony in 1945 and, unlike the victorious mood of the Fifth (Naxos 8.573029) it reveals a darker response to war and its consequences. The work was condemned by the ‘Zhdanov decree’ but composer and critics regarded the symphony highly, the noble yet anguished threnody of its central Largo balanced by the painful violence of the outer movements. The work’s ending has been described as “one of the most shattering in the repertoire”. With themes both capricious and sensuous, the Waltz Suite recycles material from earlier scores to create a remarkably effective quasi-symphonic entity.
