NEW RELEASES and NOTABLY FORTHCOMING
Recent Releases

Now that Summer 2017 is in full swing, let's celebrate with new CDs! that feature great music performed by great artists. There's a lot coming in the door these days... Just released is Remix// Bach Transcriptions, which features an array of string music by the composer in transcription for piano. Piano soloist Tanya Gabrielian gives deeply inspired, truly unforgettable performances. Equally as unforgettable is soprano Olga Senderskaya in her debut recital, Melody For Love. In this assortment of arias and songs, she reveals a voice of the utmost beauty, clarity and warmth. She's an artist to watch... Just released is Resonant Streams - Choral Music from Sun to Sea, a program of beautiful and widely varied music performed by the accomplished University of Washington Chorale under the direction of Giselle Wyers. From an entirely different direction are performances by the Lomazov-Rackers Piano Duo of arrangements for piano four hands of Three Movements from Petrushka and The Rite of Spring. These original versions are nothing if not fascinating, with Lomazov and Rackers giving their all. Also recently released are two solo recitals, both featuring wind instruments from the bass clef region of music: first, the rich sounds of the trombone are heard on Breaking Ground - A Celebration of Women Composers. As performed by Natalie Mannix, these works are compelling and accessible. Up a row and to the right is veteran Canadian bassoonist Michel Bettez in Sonatas and Nocturnes, a program of World Premiere Recordings of 19th century gems. Along with accompanying pianist Jeanne Amièle, Bettez has created a special album of worthy discoveries. Next up is is a truly fascinating album from Finnish composer-pianist Antti Samuli Hernesniemi. In his Bridge | Silta, Hernesniemi's huge range of musical styles is on display. No less fascinating is his use of a clavinova for several works - the listening experience leaves one slack-jawed. A little closer to center is En Voyage, which features the Altino Duo in performances of Desenne, Kodaly and Ravel. These young musicians have a promising future ahead of them!
