Monsigny - Le Roi et le fermier - World Premiere Recording, Opera Lafayette Le Roi et le fermier (The King and the Farmer) is set in an evocative and stormy Sherwood Forest and tells the tale of a King's encounter with a humble farmer, gently satirizing political issues of the day.

Ave Maria - Chant from Seraphic Fire With Ave Maria Seraphic Fire presents calming, restorative Gregorian chants alongside their eventual polyphonic adaptations. These soothing, crystalline hymns form the foundation of Western musical tradition, presented here as they evolved through time.

Last Chance: Szymanowski - London Symphony Orchestra, Valery Gergiev
Szymanowski - London Symphony Orchestra - Valery Gergiev Many regard Karol Szymanowski as one of the pre-eminent composers of the 20th Century, and these early symphonies attest to a very clear musical vision for such a young composer. Hear the fascination with mysticism and high-Romanticism of Symphony No. 1 as well as the passionate, soaring violin lines of the 2nd Symphony, and you'll agree that this music deserves to be widely known. Valery Gergiev conducts the London Symphony Orchestra.

Last chance to take 20% off select Gergiev/LSO releases featured inside.
