Angelic Trumpets - Alison Balsom & Tine Thing Helseth Two new releases from EMI present exciting young women trumpeters at the height of their musical powers. Seraph, from Great Britain's Alison Balsom, features the World Premiere of James MacMillan's trumpet concerto, written for and dedicated to Ms. Balsom. Norwegian Tine Thing Helseth's Storyteller is an album of songs from her recital repertoire.
   
Terrible Beauty - Phonenix Chorale, Charles Bruffy: Northern Lights For the newly released album, Ola Gjeilo, the Norwegian composer-in-residence for the Phoenix Chorale, has composed works that evoke the shifting shapes and colors of the mysterious Northern Lights. Charles Bruffy and the Grammy-nominated Phoenix Chorale give a brilliant interpretation of the 'terrible beauty’ of this natural phenomenon visible in the Norwegian night sky.


One More Week:
George Gershwin - Orchestral Works

George Gershwin Orchestral Works - JoAnn Faletta, Buffalo Philharmonic After the success of Rhapsody in Blue, George Gershwin's Concerto in F was a response to demands for a 'proper concerto' that avoided programmatic content while providing a feast of tunes both uplifting and nostalgic. Rhapsody No. 2 was originally intended as music for a film, the music describing the bustling Manhattan skyline under construction. I Got Rhythm Variations was Gershwin's last full score and was sourced from his hit musical Girl Crazy.
