Featured Titles: This weekend only, take 20% off these featured releases. Offer good through September 22 only.

Purcell, H.: Dido and Aeneas (Graham, Bostridge, Tilling, Haim)
Minkus, L.: Bayadere (La) / Paquita [Ballets] Haydn, M.: Symphonies - Nos. 14, 17, 19, 24, 29, 33, 40, 41 (German Chamber Academy Neuss, Goritzki, Beermann)
Erato - Parlophone: 0724354560552
Purcell, H.: Dido and Aeneas (Graham, Bostridge, Tilling, Haim)


This is a truly special recording of Henry Purcell's Dido and Aeneas. Emanuelle Haïm's daring, yet surefooted musical direction of the period ensemble is as lively and passionate as you could hope for. Susan Graham's Dido is a personal favorite, and Ian Bostridge, Felicity Lott, and David Daniels all give sensational performances. Superb sound completes the package.
Capriccio: C10544
Minkus, L.: Bayadere (La) / Paquita [Ballets]


This album brings together a generous collection of the music of Ludwig Minkus, best remembered as composer of the ballet 'La Bayadere.' Much of his music is lost to history as a result of being composed on-demand for various productions, often reworking old scores to fit newer productions. Play this album and be transported to the great Imperial Bolshoi Ballet of tsarist Russia.
CPO: 777137-2
Haydn, M.: Symphonies - Nos. 14, 17, 19, 24, 29, 33, 40, 41 (German Chamber Academy Neuss, Goritzki, Beermann)


Michael Haydn was a highly regarded composer, very nearly as good as his better-remembered brother Franz Joseph. Both brothers shared a flair for melody, and excellent formal orchestration skills. This double album serves as a perfect introduction to Michael Haydn symphonies and makes for very pleasurable listening indeed.
