Bartok, B.: Violin Concertos Nos. 1 and 2 (Steinbacher, Swiss Romande Orchestra, M. Janowski)


Arabella Steinbacher's reputation as a leading violinist has grown swiftly in the last five years, and this performance is one of the reasons. Bartók's First Violin Concerto was written for a young violinist with whom the composer was deeply smitten. Steinbacher's eloquent and furiously emotional style perfectly captures the longing and tumult of such a loving (and quite unrequited) statement. Sound and performance are first rate.
Naxos: 8.572778
Rota, N.: Clarinet Sonata / Clarinet Trio / Improvviso / Toccata / Fantasia (Gojevic, Kenedi, Lynn Kuo, W. Zelenka, Sweeney)


Although mainly known for his film scores, this disc highlights the many varied moods Nino Rota created with his classical compositions. Of special interest is his Fantasia only rediscovered in recent years, and full of pathos and painterly images.
Oehms Classics: OC253
Mozart, W.A.: Piano Sonatas (Complete) (Endres)


German pianist Michael Endres performs the complete Mozart piano sonatas with elegance and attention to detail. Already attractively priced, this weekend's discount makes it an all-time great bargain. Enjoy!
