User's Review: Sumptuous Feast  This is a rare album for enthusiasts of glorious Sixteenth-century choral music. No need for personal belief to find ecstasy in these works based on Christian religious texts: motets and a mass on the theme of the Eucharist. Palestrina is one of those rare composers who offers an aesthetic experience without using "expressive" devices. The vocal lines move smoothly up, then down, without shocking contrasts - and the result is just bafflingly gorgeous... Read more

User's Review (by Ted Wilks): Lutoslawski orchestral works 2  Together with Grazyna Bacewicz, Andrzej Panufnik, Krzysztof Penderecki, and Mieczyslaw Weinberg, Witold Lutoslawski (1913-1994) was one of Poland's most important twentieth-century composers. Since it was founded in 1930, BBC Symphony Orchestra, one of England's leading orchestras, has been passionately committed to performing twentieth-century and contemporary music. On this new Chandos CD, the BBC Symphony Orchestra performs four of Lutoslawski's important orchestral works... Read more

Evencio Castellanos belonged to the generation of Venezuelan composers who established a new nationalistic style in the first half of the 20th century. One of his best known works, Santa Cruz de Pacairigua pays homage to the construction of a church in Guatire, near Caracas, quoting popular dance rhythms and melodies, as well as a Venezuelan medieval carol. El Río de las Siete Estrellas (The River of the Seven Stars), inspired by a poem about the Orinoco River, describes events of pre-colonial Venezuelan history leading up to the country’s independence in 1821...

User's Review: Clear, precise and full of swing  Cowed by Beethoven, ridiculed by Wagner, and vilified by Liszt, Brahms became one of the cornerstones of the classical tradition nonetheless, refuting some of the claims by the New Germans and firmly establishing the techniques pioneered by Schubert and Wagner in the repertoire...

User's Review (by Oscar O. Veterano): Lute Music from a Master Rosario Conte, Renaissance and Baroque music scholar and period instrument virtuoso, breathes new life into another centuries old text from the dawn of music publishing, this time the lute works of Alessandro Piccinini. As with his previous recording, “Une Larme”, solo music for baroque guitar by Francesco Corbetta, Mr. Conte combines his deep academic understanding with his considerable musical talents to create a unique listening experience...

Published Review (by V. Vasan, Allmusic.com): This exciting album showcasing the works of Francisco Mignone is performed with great feeling and expressivity by the unique and inspiring Cuarteto LatinoAmericano…they bring their love of interesting and rather unknown repertoire to this CD. All the works are so attractive that it’s practically impossible to choose a favorite without unfairly slighting the others.

One of Roussel’s most performed orchestral works, The Spider’s Banquet was composed during his earlier impressionistic period, and depicts the beauty and violence of insect life in a garden. Roussel’s experiences as a lieutenant in the French Navy first introduced him to Eastern influences, and the ‘opera-ballet’ Padmâvatî was inspired by his later visit to the ancient city of Chittor in Rajasthan state of western India. It uses aspects of Indian music to evoke this city’s legendary siege by the Mongols... Read more
