    New Releases: The Sound of The King’s Singers (Nimbus Alliance)

    Critic: Rosaline Pi


    With an unmistakable sound and repertoire that ranges from classical to pop, Renaissance to the Beatles, and from folksongs to pop songs through to the avant-garde, the fantastic vocal sextet the King’s Singers have enjoyed a unique global career. Formed in 1968, this exceptional group of English vocalists will be celebrating its 50th birthday in the coming year. The Sound of The King’s Singers combines three of the group’s most famous albums.


    Whatever music finds its way to the Singers’ six stands, the product is always fresh and sung with a bright and full yet transparent vocal sound. This includes the lively madrigals from Italy, France, England, and Germany that they recorded in 1984 during their Madrigal History Tour, which, due to the collaboration with the instrumental ensemble Consort of Musicke led by Anthony Rooley, is considered a gem of early music. This is in contrast to a further great achievement of the sextet - the King’s Singers’ 1985 interpretations of the cheeky musical and film hits of the Comedian Harmonists, which stand as a tribute to the legendary German vocal sextet from the 1930s. In further contrast, the 1989 album America is a homage to the great US pop songs by Paul Simon, Randy Newman and Jimmy Web, with refined arrangements by David Cullen which were specially written for the King’s Singers and the English Chamber Orchestra under Carl Davis.

    New Releases: Brahms: Transcriptions for Solo Piano by Paul Klenge (Grand Piano)

    Critic: Dennis Wu


    The 19th century witnessed an almost insatiable demand for arrangements and transcriptions to be played on domestic pianos. Brahms himself wrote such works under the names GW Marks and Karl Würth but friends and colleagues also contributed. The violinist, pianist and conductor Paul Klengel, brother of the eminent cellist Julius, made solo piano versions of the Horn Trio and the Clarinet Quintet, transcribing with remarkable fidelity and sensitivity Brahms myriad expressive and technical demands.
