NEW RELEASES and NOTABLY FORTHCOMING
Recent Releases

As the flowers of May spring forth, so do the new releases of great music on MSR. First up is virtuoso Stephanie Sant'Ambrogio in her third title on MSR, Soaring Solo, featuring her in a virtual master class on the art of violin and viola playing. Just in is Heaven and Earth: A Duke Ellington Songbook, with vocals by Danielle Talamantes with Henry Dehlinger on piano. Danielle's performances are as stylish as they are ravishing. Also just released is Volume 10 in the Music of Barbara Harbach Series, this being Chamber V, which features music for soprano, violin, piano and chamber ensemble. The St. Louis Chamber Orchestra and Soloists are heard in World Premiere Recordings of Harbach's work. American pianist and educator Carol Leone is heard in Change of Keys: One Piano, Three Keyboards, a fascinating album featuring works by Haydn, Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, Schumann-Liszt and Bartok, performed on a Steinway fitted with specialized David Steinbuhler Standard keyboards. Next up is a program of Chopin Piano Music by David Korevaar. In this follow up to his Schubert, Ravel and Bach recordings on MSR, Korevaar shows yet another side of his expert, inspired pianism. The uniquely gifted composer-pianist Haskell Small follows up his haunting Rothko Room disc from a few years back with Book of Hours. Featuring two large works, one for piano and the other for piano with narrators, this new release is mesmerizing. A mature yet playful musical sense inhabits Volume 2 of the Music of Peter Lieuwen series, this latest release featuring an array of Concertos. Lieuwen's music is absolutely gorgeous, of which the performances are proof positive. More gorgeous performances come from The Vivaldi Project ensemble in their debut recording, Discovering the Classical String Trio. This first volume will have you waiting for the next. In their second release on MSR, the Duke Vespers Ensemble under Brian Schmidt celebrate sacred music in 17th Century Rome in Viva Italia, featuring music by Palestrina,  Carissimi,  Charpentier,  Victoria and Sances.
