Flute Recital: Chase, Claire (Terrestre)

Chase, one of the indefatigable forces behind the International Contemporary Ensemble, has never been one to hide her voracious appetite for new music. Here, she also shows off her magnetic ringleader persona, bringing together a number of performers to accompany her on an odyssey through Saariaho, Carter, Boulez, Fujikura and Franco Donatoni. - WQXR release of the week
Naxos: 8.554055
Mendelssohn: Songs without Words (Selection)

The series of Songs without Words that Mendelssohn wrote and published from 1830 onwards serve as a very personal musical diary in which the composer expressed very precisely musical ideas that had, he alleged, no verbal equivalent. It was left to later publishers to suggest titles for the pieces, a procedure that Mendelssohn himself deplored.
Haenssler Classic: CD98.272
Lauridsen: O Magnum Mysterium / Lux Aeterna / Madrigali / Les Chansons des Roses

Some of Morten Lauridsen's best known and most approachable works, performed by the Chamber Choir of Europe with predictably stunning results. This release provoked one reviewer to remark, "If there's such a thing as perfect music here on earth, this is it."
