The New Releases Show: August 11

David reviews the latest releases and re-releases and awards the coveted title of Album of the Week to Insomnia: A Nocturnal Voyage in Song from the baritone William Berger.

His Choice for the Curious, meanwhile, is a collection of recordings from the British violinist Daniel Hope. David will also play new releases of music by Handel and Beethoven, along with music by Frank Bridge, and there’s a great new collection of piano music performed by the French soloist Pierre-Laurent Aimard.
