If you are only ever going to listen to one disc of the music of Anton Webern, make it this one. It has more of his appealing orchestral music on it than any other disc. There is the Passacaglia, Op. 1 - the finale of Brahms Fourth meets the finale of Mahler's Sixth. There is the Movements (5), Op. 5 - angular, aggressive, and rapturous. There is the Pieces (6), Op. 6 - tender, mysterious, and tragic. There is his pointillistic orchestration of Bach's Ricercar a 6 voci - cool dots of color illuminating a mathematical proof. There is his affectionate orchestration of Schubert's German Dances - lightly lyrical peasant dances done with loving care. There is even his Im Sommerwind - a Romantic tone poem describing his trysts in the Austrian alps.

The first Brahms, the last Brahms, the first Berg: Brahms was twenty when he composed his Third Sonata in 1853, Berg twenty-three at the time of his only Sonata in that year 1910 … If the Sonata in F minor of Brahms represents the fulfillment and summit of the great romantic sonata - the timing of his symphonic gigantism - in the lineage from Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven to Schumann, Berg's Sonata symbolizes both the end of an epoch Closing the romantic sonata and opening up to the future. It is quite another world than that of Intermezzi Op. 117 of 1892, in which the art of chiaroscuro and half-tone is expressed. Brahms reconnects with the piano and his last cycles form a kind of pianistic testament. It is perhaps the most intimate of Brahms, who will also call some of his later plays "the lullabies of my pain" … Berg will obviously remember it in his Sonata.

Though generally performed on the organ, the music of the great Dutch keyboard master Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck deserved to find another, no less intense means of expression on the harpsichord. These songs, dances and polyphonic pieces, played by Sébastien Wonner on a copy of a Ruckers, a Flemish instrument of 1612, allow us a glimpse into domestic life, as in a painting by Vermeer. This disc, Mr. Wonners first solo recital recording, was recorded in the auditorium of the convent of Saint-Ulrich, Sarrebourg, August 2013. A bilingual book French and English is included.

For the Alice Cooper fans who feel his output was spotty before and after the 1989 classic Trash on Epic, Brutal Planet is a cause to rejoice. It is a solid hard rock offering. Cooper is in great voice, and he sounds mean and spirited. The title track would be a blessing on radio today. It has great bottom, sizzling guitars, and wonderful backing vocalists. The most impressive thing about this album is Cooper's lyrics. "Sanctuary" could be Lou Reed meets Deep Purple in their heyday. Back in 1987 Cooper performed with an unruly band all over the map. It was very uncomfortable and a far cry from his heyday of "I'm 18" and "Under My Wheels": guitars too loud, and an artist obviously struggling with his personal demons.

“[These suites] have rarely been recorded or promoted by harpsichordists during the most recent revival of interest in ‘early music.’” I realize that Richard Egarr is entitled to his own opinions—his liner notes on an earlier release, for example, likened the humor in Purcell’s harpsichord music to that of the wonderful old 1950s BBC comedy The Goon Show —but he’s not entitled to his own facts. Christopher Brodersen pointed out in a 2011 review of these works featuring Laurence Cummings ( Fanfare 34:5) that ArkivMusic listed nine complete sets played on the harpsichord, with several others on the piano. I find some of the suites have considerably more recordings than that, in 2014: 26 for the Suite in A Major, 28 for the Suite in D Minor, 25 for the Suite in E Minor, 47 for the Suite in E Major. If such numbers reflect rare recordings, I have to wonder what Egarr would consider a moderate number, let alone a frequent one.

Philip Glass’ Concerto Fantasy for Two Timpanists and Orchestra, composed in 2000 and transcribed for wind ensemble by Mark Lortz in 2004, is a significant addition to the repertoire of large-scale works for timpani. The work is rhythmically galvanizing, sonically alluring, and features virtuoso cadenzas for both soloists. Symphony No 4 ‘In the Shadow of No Towers’ is Mohammed Fairouz’s first major work for wind ensemble, and its inspiration is the provocative comic book by Art Spiegelman, written shortly after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Spiegelman himself has commented: “I’m moved by [this] scary, somber, and seriously silly symphony…I’m honored that the composer found an echo in my work that allowed him to strike a responsive chord and express his own complex responses to post 9/11 America. He emerges from the rubble with a very tony piece of high-brow cartoon music.”
