Sergey Rachmaninov’s songs rival his piano works in terms of popularity, and are the culmination of a uniquely Russian lyrical tradition. Piano transcription became a fashionable art form in its own right after Liszt’s work in the genre, and Rachmaninov’s elaborate piano parts make his romances ideal for solo performance in works that express effortless sensuality as well as darkness and loss. Unearthed in 2002, Rachmaninov’s own transcription of his remarkable Suite in D minor explores both tragic depths and light-hearted bravura.

The athletic Italian- (and Latin-) language arias of the young Handel, almost unknown to general audiences a few decades ago, have become almost a rite of passage for young sopranos, so it's no surprise to see the highly praised soprano Julia Lezhneva come along with a collection of them for her second solo album. It's an attractive set showing that Lezhneva knows how to play to her strengths. There are just enough of the big showpieces to prove that she can acquit herself fine in them (and indeed she has done the likes of Vivaldi very well in the past), but the majority of the program is devoted to displaying her rather uncanny silvery sound.

Russian soprano Julia Lezhneva was only 20 when she made this recording of scenes and arias from Rossini operas, but she was already a veteran, having recorded Bach's Mass in B minor for Naïve when she was 18. Lezhneva has the solid lower register and timbral fullness that ideally equips her for the Rossini roles that can be taken by either mezzo-soprano or soprano. She is entirely at ease as Cenerentola, a role designated as contralto.

Regardless of her age, this stunning disc confirms her as one of the world's leading musicians… Here it feels as if she is off the leash a bit, allowing herself to broaden out and savour the moment. She channels great feeling (at times the violin fairly weeps) without sounding lachrymose. Muller-Schott matches her for lyricism and virtuosity in the Double Concerto, which he, Fischer and Kreizberg invest with beauty and, increasingly, a sense of urgency. In all, a fabulous disc, which repays playing again and again. Actually, you probably won't be able to help yourself.

Julia Fischer and Martin Helmchen adopt a rather quick tempo and a light touch, hardly too heavily pedaled in the piano part, in the opening of the first movement of Schubert's First Sonata in D Major, a work that could lend itself, slight as it may be, to overblown Romantic rhetoric (although not in leaner and more spirited readings like that of Joseph Szigeti, who recorded the Sonata with Andor F”ldes in 1942, a performance re-released in Sony's "Masterworks Portrait" series 52538 in 1992).

Only months after Deutsche Grammophon released Anne-Sophie Mutter's recording of Bach's violin concertos, Decca released Julia Fischer's recording of the same pieces. The similarities between the two discs run deeper than merely their shared repertoire. Both labels are branches of Universal Music Group and both violinists are individualistic German women, though Mutter is currently at the peak of her career while Fischer is just a bit past starting out. The differences, however, are likewise remarkable. The Deutsche Grammophon disc includes the world premiere of a new work by Sofia Gubaidulina dedicated to the violinist, while the Decca disc includes the more conventional coupling of Bach's Concerto for violin and oboe in C minor, BWV 1060.
