Top 12 Classical Albums, May 2012

by Nate Cavalieri  |  May 3, 2012

The best classical recordings of spring 2012 are appropriately refreshing, including a collection of choral works from young Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo, a century-spanning collection of French song from American soprano Renée Fleming, and bright new performances from a roster of rising soloists, including pianists Li Yundi and Benjamin Grosvenor, and trumpeter Alison Balsom. The two most important recordings here include a first compilation of short sacred choral works by Alan Hovhaness, and Yuja Wang's immaculate collection of encores.
