September's new Studio Master releases

01 September 2013

Two lovely piano albums are released this week: Canadian pianist Janina Fialkowska continues to set the bar high with and impressive album of Schubert sonatas played with remarkable fluency and charm, whilst Mitsuko Uchida brings her characteristically deep insight to some of Schumann's lesser known piano works.

'Crisis' is one of Mike Oldfield's most commercially successful albums date and (along with 'Five Miles Out') has recently been given the make-over treatment. Featuringthe hit 'Moonlight Shadow' and guest vocals from Jon Anderson, there is plenty to savour in this 1980s classic.

Liquid Spirit marks Gregory Porter's Blue Note Records debut, which arrives on the heels of two critically acclaimed indie label albums that quickly propelled Porter to the upper echelon of contemporary male jazz singers and earned him two GRAMMY nominations.
