This Week's New Features - Thursday, March 6, 2014

Richard Danielpour - Season of Peace Richard Danielpour's Toward a Season of Peace is an oratorio which explores violence and war in the name of religion, using the season of spring as a metaphor for change, and looking to songs of peace as an agent of change and forgiveness. The texts are beautifully translated Persian poetry and the rich harmonies of the music make it symbolic of hope for a Season of Peace in that region and throughout the world. more info
 
Belcea Quartet - Beethoven Beethoven's string quartet cycle is an interpretive challenge for serious ensembles, but one that provides rich rewards. The Belcea Quartet have risen to this challenge with striking, dramatic results. Critical praise has been widespread for initial volumes, some having gone as far as to hail this the new reference series. Now the complete series is available in an attractively-priced box set. more info

Brahms: Symphonies 3 & 4 - London Philharmonic Orchestra With the featured release, Vladimir Jurowski and the London Philharmonic Orchestra complete their survey of Brahms's four symphonies. Symphonies Nos. 3 & 4 were recorded live in concert at Royal Festival Hall in 2010 and 2011 respectively. Brahms's Third Symphony is one of the composer's most personal works. The Fourth Symphony's extraordinary passacaglia finale, based on a Bach cantata, sums up the composer's symphonic mastery. more info
