Klaus Heymann Recommends - ClassicsOnline

Dear ClassicsOnline Fans,

Founder and Chairman Klaus Heymann offers his insights on a selection of March Naxos releases.

MAXWELL DAVIES, P.: Symphony No. 1 / Mavis in Las Vegas (BBC Philharmonic, Maxwell Davies)
8.572348 Maxwell Davies: Symphony No. 1 / Mavis in Las Vegas

This is the first volume of our project to re-release all the symphonies and other orchestral works by this composer, previously available on the now defunct Collins Classics label. Both works are conducted by the composer himself and show two sides of his remarkable musical imagination. A great introduction to one of the most important living composers!

SARASATE, P. de: Violin and Piano Music, Vol. 3 (Tianwa Yang, Hadulla)
8.570893 Sarasate: Music for Violin and Piano, Vol. 3

The complete works for violin and piano and violin and orchestra by Sarasate are one of our most successful projects. There will be another volume each for violin and piano and violin and orchestra. Vol. 3 of the complete works for violin and orchestra is among our 20 best-selling recordings in 2011. The whole series is unprecedented and each volume has received equally unprecedented critical acclaim. Great melodies, dazzling virtuosity there's nothing like it in the market.

VERDI, G.: Ballet Music from the Operas (Complete) (Bournemouth Symphony, Serebrier)
8.572818-19 Verdi: Complete Ballet Music From The Operas

Everybody knows the ballet music from Aida but very few people have ever heard the ballet music from Il Trovatore, Don Carlos and Jerusalem. Here are 2 hours of tuneful, highly enjoyable music. First-class performances conducted by Jose Serebrier captured in brilliant sound by producer/engineer Phil Rowlands. Enjoy!


BACH, J.S.: Orchestral Transcriptions by Respighi and Elgar (Seattle Symphony, Schwarz)
8.572741 Bach: Orchestral Transcriptions by Respighi and Elgar

Naxos is re-releasing the Seattle Symphony/Gerard Schwarz recordings previously available at full price on Delos. This is the first of these recordings and offers highly enjoyable transcriptions of works by Bach by Elgar and Respighi. I have listened to this recording many times and like it more every time I listen. Not to be missed!


My First Ballet Album My First Lullaby Album
My First Album Series

This is one of our most important projects with music for children. Each selection is carefully tailored for younger listeners and includes famous tracks as well as unexpected gems. These recordings will open a door to a wonderful world that children and parents can discover together.


My First Tchaikovsky Album My First Violin Album

We hope you will enjoy these selections and more from Naxos Records and ClassicsOnline.
