Best of the rest: the classical CDs we missed in 2022

We are able to review only a tiny fraction of the albums released each month. From Brahms to Berg, and Pejačević to Sohy, here are 10 recent releases worth going back to

Despite more than a decade now of dire predictions of the terminal decline of the classical recording industry there’s still no sign of its imminent demise. Companies may come and go, and the emphasis of the repertory may shift from year to year, but the quantity of discs and downloads issued by both familiar and unfamiliar labels seems undiminished. There are so many new discs to sample each month that if you ask any two classical enthusiasts to name their standout releases of the year, it’s unlikely that there will be much overlap. What we do review sometimes seems barely to scratch the surface of what’s available and what deserves attention.
