This Week's New Features - Thursday, April 04, 2013

Rachmaninov Symphony No. 3 - Leonard Slatkin, Detroit Symphony Orchestra Rachmaninov's Symphony No. 3 is an exemplar of his later, more spare style, as in the Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini he had composed two years earlier. The Symphonic Dances is his last work and considered among his finest. Each blends intense rhythmic energy with rich romanticism and are the work of a forward looking composer at the height of his powers. more info
Vagn Holmboe - World Premieres From Dacapo comes this new World Premiere Holmboe recording with a first-class Scandanavian orchestra and two brilliant Nordic string soloists, Lars Anders Tomter and Erik Heide. The solo concertos for violin and viola combine the composers' Nordic style with his joyful love of the wild eastern European folk music that has captivated him throughout his life. Also included is his youth work Concerto for Orchestra from 1929 which has never been performed until this recording. more info
Pavel Kolesnikov - Honens Prize winner Ten pianists between the ages of 20 and 30 years were invited to take part in the 7th Honens International Piano Competition. Pavel Kolesnikov was chosen as the Honens Prize Laureate, and this recording features highlights of the winning performances. more info
