BORODIN SYMPHONY NO. 2
Malta Philharmonic Orchestra
Enjoy the sonorous roar of the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra as they tell tales of triumph through music on BORODIN SYMPHONY NO. 2. While all three pieces wield their own compositional characteristics, an underlying theme of pride and victory in the face of adversity is present throughout.
SCHUBERT LATE WORKS VOLUME 1
Lauded by critics for his masterful touch and dynamic style, Masi capitalizes on the unrivaled emotive power of solo piano throughout SCHUBERT LATE WORKS, drawing out a voice from the instrument that is profoundly human in a well-balanced blend of virtuosic artistry and a razor-sharp precision.
DIMENSIONS VOL 4
Liova Bueno, Keith Lay, Octavian Nemescu, Ashlee T Busch, James Lentini, Christopher Jessup
DIMENSIONS VOL. 4 gathers together a diverse collection of works for large ensemble by six lauded contemporary composers. These powerful yet intimate creations expand the boundaries of traditional chamber music while preserving the unique timbre of each individual instrument.
PAS DE DEUX
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Talented violinist and arranger Sarah Coyl presents Tchaikovsky’s well-loved melodies in a new light on PAS DE DEUX, re-setting the Russian composer’s works for unprecedented setups – in this case, the violin-guitar duo and the violin-guitar-piano trio. The result is an album that is still very reverently Tchaikovsky – but seen from a fresher, more youthful angle.
Hilary Tann’s profoundly lyrical sacred works shine in LUMINARIA MAGNA, a striking and inspiring collection of songs featuring the voices of Cappella Clausura and the exceptional organ performance of Heinrich Christiansen. Tann’s Welsh heritage and homeland is palpable in these sincere musical devotions, transporting listeners to the foggy moorlands of South Wales.
TRIOS AND SONATINAS
Richard E Brown
Composer Richard E Brown’s music is at once neoclassical and aesthetic, and his selection of TRIOS & SONATINAS makes for a perfect introduction. Brown naturally unites polar opposites in this release: the Western classical piano trio with Korean folk themes, the simple sonatina form with musical complexity, and the frail violin and resounding horn.
LEGENDS AND LIGHT VOL. 3
Ben Marino, Fergus Johnston, Joungmin Lee, Raffaele Marcellino, Josef Suk
LEGENDS AND LIGHT VOL. 3 is an ambitious collection of new works performed by the Janáček Philharmonic Ostrava. Inspired by art, mystical experiences, and the wonders of our universe, this album casts a spotlight on the compositional innovation and orchestral ferocity of today’s composers and performers.
