In June, Alia Vox débuts two new releases that further demonstrate the label's remarkable depth and diversity. Jordi Savall invites listeners to discover seminal music from the time of Heinrich Isaac and Euskal Barrokensemble offer their new and decidedly different take on Manuel De Falla's masterpiece El Amor Brujo. On Channel Classics, The Dragon Quartet, led by celebrated Chinese violinist Ning Feng, present their début recording featuring works by Schubert and Dvorák. Two of harmonia mundi's top artists offer new titles this month. Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin perform a selection of Telemann concertos and Raphaël Pichon and Ensemble Pygmalion explore music from the birth of opera. Hyperion's key releases for June include pianist Steven Osborne performing Falla and Ravel, violinist Andrew Marwood's reading of Walton's powerful Violin Concerto and choral music by Stanford with Stephen Layton and the Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge. Onyx Classics has a reputation for developing new talents. Their latest discovery is Russian pianist Rustem Hayroudinoff, who makes his début on the label playing Rachmaninov sonatas. Also on Onyx, Simon Trpceski performs Prokofiev Piano Concertos and cellist Leonard Elschenbroich offers a collection of music by French composers. The raucous mood and merry music of an English 17th Century tavern is vividly recreated by Bjarte Eike and Barokksolistene on their new Rubicon release aptly titled The Alehouse Sessions. Wigmore Hall Live is the latest label to join the [PIAS] family. The partnership gets off to a great start with a new release from renowned period ensemble The English Concert led by Harry Bicket. Jazz Village releases for June focus on new talents. Shahin Novrasli, a protégé of Ahmad Jamal, blends flavors of east and west, while Jowee Omicil's jazz has hints of Creole, gospel, soul and hip-hop. To celebrate the album's 15th anniversary, Real World has reissued Redemption’s Son, Joseph Arthur’s acclaimed third album, on CD and vinyl. The latest release from Craig Leon's enterprising Atlas Réalisations label is Frozen Refrains, a new album by enigmatic French electronic artist Bérangère Maximin.
