Album: Alison Balsom, Italian Concertos (EMI Classics)

To follow up her acclaimed album Haydn Hummel Trumpet Concertos, the phenomenally gifted Alison Balsom turns her attention to Italian composers, with a selection of concertos originally composed for violin or oboe by Vivaldi, Albinoni, Tartini, Cimarosa and Marcello.

Album: John Lennon, Every Step's a Yes (EMI)

EMI, as part of their reissue programme of John Lennon's notoriously patchy solo oeuvre, have created this 4CD slipcase compilation that divides Lennon's material by the categories Roots (rock'n'roll influences), Woman (love songs), Working Class Hero (political songs) and Borrowed Time (something about "his eventual understanding of the fragility of all our lives").

Album: David Bowie Station to Station (Super Deluxe, Limited Edition) (EMI)

Business Diary: No room for satire at EMI

They're such a bunch of killjoys over at EMI. For weeks now YouTube has featured a video spoofing the Jay-Z and Alicia Keys track. Newport State of Mind sees the original lyrics replaced with a tribute to all things Welsh. It's been a huge hit online, but search for it today and all you'll find is this message: "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by EMI Music Publishing Ltd". EMI is no doubt in the right, but where's its sense of fun?

Album: Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse, Dark Night of the Soul (EMI)

Before his recent death, alt-country icon Mark Linkous (aka Sparklehorse) and producer Danger Mouse began work on the collaborative project that would become Dark Night of the Soul, featuring an astonishing array of guest vocalists, among them Wayne Coyne, Iggy Pop and David Lynch.

Album: Karl Jenkins Gloria/Te Deum (EMI Classical)

As with his earlier Adiemus and last year's Christmas album Stella Natalis, Karl Jenkins' new piece Gloria, while ostensibly a Christian work, embodies the kind of multi-cultural holism we're unlikely to encounter in either politics or pulpit, with readings from Hindu, Buddhist, Taoist and Islamic sources interspersed among the five movements like inscrutable musical sorbets.

Men at Work to pay out royalties

A judge has ordered the Australian band Men at Work to hand over 5 per cent of the recent royalties from their 1980s hit "Down Under", after a ruling in February that its distinctive flute riff was copied from a children's campfire song.
