Get This Before It Disappears!

Make 2022 your best year yet and let this Moon Reading decode your destiny with precise wisdom you can’t find anywhere else!

As usual, the highlights of this month’s classical music span a wide range of genres. There is Baroque opera: Porpora’s Carlo il Calvo; two solo guitar albums, one with Raphaël Feuillâtre (pictured) and one from Zsofia Boros; a second volume of piano encores by Piers Lane; and an impressive reading of Stanford’s Requiem. For those looking for more modern music, there is Thierry Fischer conducting Messiaen’s Des canyons aux êtoiles… and a new recording by the Colin Currie Group of Reich’s Music for 18 Musicians. It’s quite the variety from which to choose.
