Bartok, B.: Violin Concerto No. 2 / Eotvos, P.: Seven / Ligeti, G.: Violin Concerto (Kopatchinskaja, Eotvos)


Patricia Kopatchinskaja dedicated this album to Transylvania, both because it is Dracula's homeland, but perhaps more because it is one of the places where Bartok collected so many folk melodies. This album won Recording of the Year in 2012 from Gramophone Magazine, which says, "this disc forged ahead to take our Award of Awards because it has a story to tell—and exactly the right people are telling it." -- Gramophone
Naxos / Early Music Collection: 8.553132
On the Way to Bethlehem: Music of the Medieval Pilgrim (Ensemble Unicorn)


Both Ensemble Unicorn and Oni Wytars Ensemble are comprised of ancient music scholars and musicians. Both specialize in music ranging from the middle ages up to early baroque, played on authentic period instruments. This program is organized around the theme of pilgrimage to the holy land, including music from England, France, Germany, Eastern Europe, as far East as Syria.
Phono Suecia: PS-CD12
Pettersson, A.: Symphony No. 14 (Stockholm Philharmonic, Comissiona)


Gustav Allan Petterson worked most of his life in obscurity, following a childhood dominated by his stern, alcoholic father, with support provided by his religious, musical mother. Perhaps it is no accident that most of his symphonies are intense, one–movement pieces – clashing, tumultuous, with respite in lyrical passages coming just when needed. Distinctive and unmistakable, Petterson's works deserve their still–growing audience.
