This is Adam Laloum’s debut album with Sony Classical. Laloum tackles both of Brahms’s two piano concerti in this recording - a demanding task for even the most seasoned performer, and so, this record-ing stands as a testament to the confidence and abilities of the young French pianist. Laloum is the recipient of a number of prestigious awards including first prize for the Clara Haskil Piano Competition in 2009 and more recently the Victoire de la Musique Classique (Instrumental Soloist of the Year) in 2017.

Raphaël Pichon has invited Stéphane Degout to make his recording debut for harmonia mundi in a multifaceted exploration of the Underworld. The French baritone reincarnates the figure of Henri Larrivée, the famous tragedian of Rameau and Gluck. Around a reconstruction of an imaginary Mass of the Dead, sacred and secular merge, revealing some of the most extraordinary pieces from the operatic repertory of the Enlightenment. Music of death and mourning on an epic scale that inspires Pygmalion to overwhelming heights of pathos.

The Elias Quartet has already recorded a complete cycle of Beethoven quartets at Wigmore Hall that was extremely well received by the critics. Now Sara Bitlloch, Donald Grant, Martin Saving and Marie Bitlloch present on Alpha an album devoted to Schumann:"We have always had a special affection for Robert Schumann’s Third Quartet. It’s one of the first works we played together. Since then we have often come back to it, as if to a splendid and familiar region that we think we know thoroughly, but which yields up new secrets with each visit.

The Nuremberg trio A Tale Of Golden Keys naturally places a dove on the cover of their second LP "Shrimp". This humor probably does not open up to every observer right away. The musical direction is different: the ten pop-songs of the album, which are often driven by the piano, nestle comfortably and move quite a bit into louder guitar performances with cheerfully drumming drums. The band acts best when it crashes properly, as in "Will I Be The Last". You feel transported back to the Emo's wedding - Death Cab For Cutie, The Weakerthans or Jimmy Eat World may have been the godfather.

Nation of Two is the second studio album by Australian singer-songwriter Vance Joy. The album was announced on 3 November 2017, with Vance Joy explaining: "Nation of Two describes a perfectly self-contained couple; their world beginning and ending at the bed they share, the car they ride in, or any other place where they're together… the idea that their love for each other gives them their bearings; a point of reference that makes sense of life."

Every Leroy Hutson album features a sweeping, make-you-feel-good opening tune; this time "Love the Feeling" warms you for a collage of soulful ballads, mid-tempo romps, and steppers. The best of the lot is "I Do, I Do (Want to Make Love to You)," a sensuous booty call reminiscent of Peabo Bryson. Jonesing for a hit, some of the cuts come off cookie-cutter, but Hutson's singing shines throughout. "Blackberry Jam" and "Sofunktiscation" are formulaic but pleasing funkers.

Released on Curtom Records in 1975, Hutson illuminates the fickleness and unpredictable nature of the music business. Leroy Hutson seemed to have it all going for him; he replaced Curtis Mayfield in the Impressions, then branched out solo, was a friend of Donny Hathaway (who also worked for Mayfield at the time), and was given carte blanche to produced hits with the help of others for himself. The biorhythms must have been out of whack, because it never really happened for the talented guy. This is a fine effort with bouncy tunes, stirring ballads, and crack productions yet the masses never heard it. Best bets: All. But special mention to "Lucky Fellow," "All Because of You," and "So Much Love."

Long before Steve Miller discovered the art of writing great short pop songs with infectious guitar licks, he led a dynamite band that featured Boz Scaggs. This incandescent album was their last together and for the vast majority of Miller followers it remains the pinnacle. Sandwiched in between the band's love for the blues and R&B with "Gangster Of Love" and "You're So Fine" are great rock tracks such as "Living In The USA" and "Dime-A-Dance Romance." The desert-island choice, however, is the imaginative instrumental "Song For Our Ancestors." Close your eyes while listening to it and, without needing artificial stimulants, you can actually hear ferry boats entering the harbor, as captured in audio verite for the track.
