Featured Titles: This weekend only, take 20% off these featured releases. Offer good through July 20 only.

Beethoven, L. van: Triple Concerto / Symphony No. 5 (All Beethoven) (Eroica Trio, Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, Solzhenitsyn)
Converse: Mystic Trumpeter (The) / Flivver Ten Million / Endymion's Narrative
CBC: SMCD5207
Bruch: Violin Concertos Nos. 1 and 3


Charles Dutoit's romantic approach to the orchestral score ideally suits James Ehnes' conception, resulting in a very satisfying performance. CBC's recording balances the violin adroitly against the orchestra, though it doesn't match the resplendent sound Decca usually gets from these forces.
Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia: COP058
Beethoven, L. van: Triple Concerto / Symphony No. 5 (All Beethoven) (Eroica Trio, Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, Solzhenitsyn)


The Eroica Trio is ably supported by the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia performing Beethoven's Triple Concerto and his Fifth Symphony. Also included are Beethoven's 'Consecration of the House' overture and Astor Piazzolla's Oblivion.
Naxos / American Classics: 8.559116
Converse: Mystic Trumpeter (The) / Flivver Ten Million / Endymion's Narrative


About The Mystic Trumpeter of 1904, Frederick Converse related that he recast Whitman's Leaves of Grass into five contrasting sections, omitting the fourth stanza. As a tone poem the music follows the new literary scheme in a sequence of five musical events without pause.
