This Week's New Features - Thursday, July 11, 2013

Anton Rubinstein - Symphony No. 5 Anton Rubinstein was one of the towering figures of nineteenth-century music, a great piano virtuoso, conductor and influential teacher. The fifth of his six symphonies is thoroughly Russian in its melodies, and is often compared to his student Tchaikovsky's First Symphony. The overture to Rubinstein's first opera Dmitry Donsky is based on a similarly national Russian theme, while Faust is the sole surviving movement of an abandoned Faust symphony. more info
Rare Opera Recordings from Capriccio This month brings us a bounty of new, rarely recorded opera from Capriccio. more info
The Seasons - Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet The wind quintet has origins in the early 19th century, but it was during the 20th that it came of age. The sound and color made possible by the combination of flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn were exploited to full effect...Once established, it became common practice to add instruments to vary the timbres in other ways by composers such as Charles Koechlin and Heitor Villa-Lobos (alto saxophone)...The newly released box set in this feature provides a generous compendium of such works, all ably performed by the Berlin Philharmonic Wind Quintet. more info
