    GREAT COMEDY OVERTURES

    $12.99
    The flourishing genre of the comic opera had its roots in eighteenth-century Italian opera buffa. In France it produced opéra comique and operetta, and in German-speaking countries Spieloper and Viennese operetta. Some of the world’s most popular comic opera overtures are presented here. They include repertoire such as Hérold’s dramatic Zampa, the textual delicacy of Wolf-Ferrari’s Il segreto di Susanna and the vivid colour of Lortzing’s Zar und Zimmermann.

    XENAKIS: IX

    $22.99
    Kuniko's much-anticipated third studio recording features the works of Iannis Xenakis, whose work had a huge impact within the world of music, and percussion repertoire in particular. Full of challenges, from the pioneering mathematical influences, to unusual notation and virtuosic performance requirements, many classify Xenakis’ compositions as unplayable, but KUNIKO’s unrivaled prowess sees her perfectly realize the composer’s vision.

    SAINT-SAENS: SYMPHONIES VOL. 2

    $12.99
    Inspired by Liszt, to whose memory the work is dedicated, Camille Saint-Saëns’ Symphony No. 3 is groundbreaking in its inclusion of organ and piano. By contrast the Symphony in A, his first completed symphony, is a youthful piece, fully revealing his admiration for Mozart, while Le rouet d’Omphale, dating from the 1870s, is an impressively atmospheric tone poem.

    SPES

    $34.99
    Under the direction of its conductor Tove Ramlo-Ystad, and in collaboration with composer and musician Frode Fjellheim, Cantus explores a new and little-known musical world, a world with a wide range of emotions: sorrow, joy and vulnerability. Through these songs, sounds and musical forms–some familiar, others scarcely known–Cantus challenges itself and the audience with a repertoire that while being striking in its variety, is united in its expression of hope.

    BERLIN SONATAS

    $18.99
    Berlin Sonatas presents cellist Elinor Frey and pianist Lorenzo Ghielmi in a recital of 18th c. chamber pieces that reveals the greater possibilities the use of the five-string cello holds for today’s cellists. La voce del violoncello, her debut Passacaille release, was praised for its “careful scholarship and brilliant layering of moods and tempos” (Toronto Star) and for the “honest, reflective beauty of her music making” (Strings).

    POULENC: CHORAL WORKS

    $12.99
    Brought up in the Roman Catholic faith, which he abandoned in 1917 following the death of his father, Poulenc returned to the Church in 1936 after the death of his close friend and fellow composer Pierre-Octave Ferroud. Together these events caused a spiritual crisis in Poulenc’s life leading to a series of important compositions for chorus. The powerful Mass in G major is notable for its daring use of tonality. In the Sept Chansons, set to surrealist texts, and in the two sets of Motets Poulenc generates a huge range of emotion.
