Featured Titles: This weekend only, take at least 20% off these featured releases. Offer good through June 24 only.

Mozart: Complete Works for Horn and Orchestra
Bizet, G.: Carmen (excerpts) / L'Arlesienne Suites Nos. 1 and 2 (Minkowski) Salieri: Sinfonias and Overtures
Naxos: 8.553592
Mozart: Complete Works for Horn and Orchestra


This highly regarded recording includes the 4 regular Concertos plus reconstructions of two movements of an earlier horn concerto composed just after Mozart moved to Vienna. Very clear, atmospheric sound and a superb performance from both Michael Thompson and the Bournemouth Sinfonietta.
naive: V5130
Bizet, G.: Carmen (excerpts) / L'Arlesienne Suites Nos. 1 and 2 (Minkowski)


It is hard to imagine surpassing this Mark Minkowski recording of these beloved suites from Bizet. The offering includes a third suite from L'Arlésienne between the familiar two and a spectacular Carmen suite. The orchestral playing is exemplary and the sound is reference quality.
Chandos: CHAN9877
Salieri: Sinfonias and Overtures


For those who know Salieri only as a footnote in the story of Mozart, this album nicely showcases the inventive, curious and daring creativity of a major talent at work. Especially intriguing is the 26 Variations on 'La Folia' which continually changes color and mood in unexpected ways.


Our Featured Label of the Week: Concerto  -- Take 20% off the entire label this weekend only. Offer good through June 24.

Concerto

Concerto prides itself on the clean sound of its recordings achieved using cutting-edge technology. The catalogue concentrates primarily on early music (pre-18th century), but also lesser-known repertoire and contemporary music. The label supports talented young Italian artists and has produced many world première recordings.
