Classical CDs Round-Up 11

Rewired Debussy, Bach on the accordion, and a whole lot of horns

Horn of Plenty: A new CD showcasing Brahms, Mozart and Duvernoy leads this month's pick of the best new classical releases
This month’s new releases include a skilled orchestral re-imagining of Debussy piano music, some unfairly neglected late romanticism and a box of late Haydn symphonies. There’s a sublime Brahms chamber work, and three contrasting interpretations of Bach. A little-known Swiss contemporary composer gets an airing, a young cellist plays a nice set of transcriptions and a young Spanish group tackle three Hungarian string quartets. There’s also a timely reissue of a classic 20th-century opera.
