Harmonia Mundi announces a rich release program for this fall: 21 new recordings and 22 re-issues, some of them having disappeared from the catalogue a long time ago.

The autumn season will inaugurate four artistic partnerships. Ensemble Resonanz is joining Matthias Goerne in an offshoot of his Schubert Edition (a disc devoted to the unjustly neglected Hanns Eisler). HM also welcomes Heinavanker, another ensemble, based in the Baltic lands, which owes its name to Hieronymus Bosch’s famous painting The Haywain. Their recording provides a panorama of early vocal and choral music from Estonia.

Sébastien Daucé and his Ensemble Correspondances offer an innovative vision of the motets composed by Marc-Antoine Charpentier for Mademoiselle de Guise. Spanish conductor Pablo Heras-Casado is leading the prestigious Freiburger Barockorchester for his first HM Recording, with two symphonies by young Schubert.

There will also be new CDs of Javier Perianes and Isabelle Faust, who has gone back to the sources of two major works of the twentieth century, the two violin concertos of Bartók. Jean-Guihen Queyras plays Edward Elgar’s mythical Cello Concerto. Trio Wanderer comes with Tchaikovsky and Arensky. Arcanto Quartett has recorded Mozart’s sublime Clarinet Quintet, in a collaboration with clarinetist Jörg Widmann. Finally, René Jacobs has produced a new recoding of Bach’s St Matthew Passion, which he has experienced as a choirboy in Ghent, as a soloist in the 1980s (alongside Philippe Herreweghe), and now as a conductor.
