Faure, G.: Piano Quartets Nos. 1 and 2 (Trio Wanderer, Tamestit)
Bartok, B.: Concerto for Orchestra / Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta (Baltimore Symphony, Alsop) Dvorak, A.: Cello Concerto, B. 10 / Klid (Silent Woods) / Rondo, B. 181 / Polonaise, B. 94 (Raiskin)
Harmonia Mundi: HMC902032
Faure, G.: Piano Quartets Nos. 1 and 2 (Trio Wanderer, Tamestit)


Beautifully performed and recorded, Trio Wanderer delivers these two Faure Piano Quartets with an idiomatic performance that capturess their unique French character. Faure was a much-admired pianist whose compositions nearly always included that instrument, but seldom in solo form. He preferred accompaniment by chamber ensembles, and these examples are regarded among the best of French chamber music.
Naxos: 8.572486
Bartok, B.: Concerto for Orchestra / Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta (Baltimore Symphony, Alsop)


Marin Alsop leads her Baltimore forces in a performance of Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra that matches or exceeds any on record. This well-engineered recording has just been made available in lossless, CD-quality FLAC.
CPO: 777461-2
Dvorak, A.: Cello Concerto, B. 10 / Klid (Silent Woods) / Rondo, B. 181 / Polonaise, B. 94 (Raiskin)


Dvorak's B Minor Cello Concerto is rightly considered one of the finest in the repertoire. Less known is his first cello concerto, composed when he was only 24 years old, and not widely performed during his lifetime. It is resurrected here, along with all his shorter pieces for cello, given a great performance and captured in a beautiful recording.
