As with their first collection of label highlights, Hyperion's new two-disc collection provides a broad sampling of their exceptional catalogue and performers. Particularly rewarding are the selections from Beethoven (Scherzo from String Trio in C minor, op 9 no 3, performed by the Leopold Trio) and Thomas Tallis (Salvator mundi I, performed by the Winchester Cathedral Choir), but experienced and novice listeners alike will find much to enjoy on these discs. It's also a good value--more than 2 1/2 hours of music for less than $10.
Composers ranging from the seventeenth century Nicola Matteis( Concerto for two trumpets)to Dmitri Shostakovich( Prelude and fugue in A op.87,no.7 )are represented here.Some I had never heard before:the 14th century Martin Coday and the 15th century Charles the Bold,Duke of Burgundy,Juan Gutierrez de Padilla and Louis-James-Alfred Lefebure-Wely.One must remember that this is a sampler so that 28 pieces by different composers are crammed into just under 80 minutes.An appetite whetter.
