Classical album review: Mark-Anthony, Turnage
Speranza etc (LSO Live)

From the Wreckage, Turnage’s 2005 trumpet concerto, was written for the Swedish virtuoso Hakan Hardenberger. Speranza, an LSO commission, is played without the fourth of five movements that Turnage dropped after February’s premiere. The remaining four, the title of each, like that of the work, meaning “hope” – in Arabic, Gaelic, German and Hebrew – are partly inspired by the bleak poetry of Jewish-Romanian poet and Holocaust survivor Paul Celan.

Cheb I Sabbah: Pioneering DJ and producer who explored spirituality with his fusion of dance beats and world music

Album review: Johnny Flynn, Country Mile (Transgressive)

Music review: Roger Waters' The Wall tour - The crowd weeps during 'Comfortably Numb'

Wembley Stadium at night suits The Wall. It feels oppressive and chaotic up in the stands of this aircraft hanger of a venue, and Roger Waters’ most literally monumental achievement has more self-loathing, rage and disgust in its bones than any other rock show that’s filled stadiums worldwide with people wanting to hear it.

Feel the noise: Andy Murray sees off Leonardo Mayer on Friday night

US Open: Racket makes Andy Murray a good shout for success

The hubbub of Flushing Meadows is not to everyone's taste. There is a constant background noise at the US Open, whether it is planes flying into La Guardia airport, music at the changeovers or just the sound of people talking, shouting and moving around. In the city that never sleeps, it is no surprise that there is never true peace and quiet.

Album review: Rizzle Kicks, Roaring 20s (Island)

Album of the Week: Rizzle dazzle with a fast-talking slice of everyday life

Album: Iro Haarla Sextet, Kolibri (Tum)

Pianist/harpist and composer Haarla has been an important voice for decades (she was also the consort of the late, great Finnish bandleader Edward Vesala), and the seven pieces here reflect her absorption in the natural world, with titles such as "Nightjar" and "Spirit Bear".
