Other Featured New Releases:


Rossini, G.: L'Occasione fa il ladro (Martirosyan, Antonelou, Ruggeri, Utzeri, Cortes, Wurttemberg Philharmonic, Fogliani) Rossini, G.: L'occasione fa il ladro (Martirosyan, Antonelou, Ruggeri, Utzeri, Cortes, Wurttemberg Philharmonic, Fogliani)
Naxos: 8.660314-15

Composed quickly by a youthful Gioachino Rossini, L'occasione fa il ladro is a comedy of errors involving switched suitcases, stolen identities and hearts.
   
Handel, G.F.: Acis and Galatea (Les Arts Florissants, Christie) Handel, G.F.: Acis and Galatea (Les Arts Florissants, Christie)
Erato: 639842550567

The innovative Baroque style that served to establish Les Arts Florissants' impeccable reputation is portrayed again in this release of Handel's Acis and Galatea. Conducted by founder William Christie, Gramophone observes that this new version is "a polished and strongly characterized performance, finely recorded."
   
Cartellieri, A.C.: Complete Symphonies (Evergreen Symphony, Schmalfuss) Cartellieri, A.C.: Complete Symphonies (Evergreen Symphony, Schmalfuss)
CPO: 777667-2

Antonio Cartellieri was a student of Salieri and a contemporary of Beethoven. His work bears the audible mark of Beethoven's influence, but also an early romantic voice all its own. The conductor of this recording has been the major force behind the rediscovery of this little-known composer.
