Dear ClassicsOnline customer,

Highlighted below are four new releases we believe you will enjoy. Sarah-Jane Bradley's performances of viola pieces inspired by Lionel Tertis are gems of British viola repertoire. Andreas Staier gives another compelling performance, the time of the Diabelli Variations. Multi-faceted composer Carson Cooman gets a showcase for his choral compositions, and for the adventurous palate, free jazz from Don Cherry.

Thanks,
The ClassicsOnline Team

Don Cherry is one of the towering figures in the free-bop movement, first as a member of Ornette Coleman's group, then on his own as on this double album. Don Cherry made this album while living in Sweden in the early 1970's with Swedish musicians from all backgrounds, and the freedom of the times is evident in the music.
