Bruckner, A.: Symphony No. 9 (Halle Orchestra, Mandeal)


"This is as fine a Bruckner Ninth as any we have had on record from an English orchestra. The Hallé's realisation of the reading is finely moulded, powerful where necessary, and distinguished above all by the sustained intensity of the playing in the music's quietest passages. This is not 'Hallé live' but a properly made studio recording. And it shows."
- Gramophone
Analekta: AN29883
Simon, P.: Dangling Conversation (The) / The Sound of Silence / Bridge Over Troubled Water / Scarborough Fair (Old Friends) (arr. A. Bareil) (Bareil)


Two young Canadian musicians interpret Simon & Garfunkel songs in arrangements for violin and harp. Even if you are skeptical of crossover albums, the arrangements are thoughtful, the performance and recording are sublime and the music is beautiful. Recommended.
Cedille: CDR7003
Vivaldi, A.: Oboe Concertos (Klein, New Brandenburg Collegium, Newman)


These oboe concertos by Vivaldi each contain a singularly difficult passage, as though he were composing them for a particularly talented student. Alex Klein was principal oboist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and possesses a rare purity of tone and complete command of the instrument.


Our Featured Label of the Week: New Amsterdam Records -- Take 20% off the entire label this weekend only. Offer good through November 18.

New Amsterdam Records was formed as a haven for the young New York composers and performers whose music slips through the cracks between genres.
