NEW RELEASES, GREAT NEWS and NOTABLY FORTHCOMING
PRE-ORDER TODAY | The incomparable Houston Chamber Choir in their third release on MSR has provided a Free Stream from their forthcoming CD soft blink of amber light. Featuring a program of utterly gorgeous music commissioned by the group, this disc is bound to become a new favorite. Please take a moment to listen to "To Be Sung on the Water" from David Ashley White's The Blue Estuaries, and pre-order your disc today!
To counteract the fading "daze" of Summer, MSR has a host of brilliant new recordings of great music. Just in the door is Flourishes, Tales and Symphonies, a glorious program of music for brass and organ - the Chicago Gargoyle Brass and Organ Ensemble, in a demonstration-class recording, will be knocking socks off. Volume 1 in the CME Presents series is also just in, featuring a spirited Piano Celebration for piano and piano four hands. Under the guidance of Founder and Director Min Kwon, the five musicians of The Center for Musical Excellence give an impressive debut! Volume 2 of the Daniel Carr Works series is right behind it, featuring intelligent, tuneful music for flute and piano performed beautifully by Francois Minaux and Mayumi Tayake. Another Volume 2 is just in, this of the In Recital series by UK pianist James Brawn. In this rather astounding 2CD set, the full measure of his range and inspiration is on display. In Shades of Sound, flutist Lisa Garner Santa shines just as brightly in her second release on MSR. In a glorious program of J.S. Bach Organ Music, Barbara Harbach brings her arsenal of musical gifts to these great works. In a very different vein, tuneful chamber music for clarinet, piano, and piano duo by Michael Eckert is featured on Brazilian Dreams. Also new this month is David Korevaar in performance of two Schubert Piano Sonatas. Korevaar is also heard partnering with Takacs Quartet violist Geraldine Walther in Hindemith Viola Sonatas.
MSR recording artist James Brawn is now a Steinway Artist, joining the ranks of great pianists like Vladimir Ashkenazy, Emanuel Ax and Stephen Kovacevich. We congratulate James wholeheartedly on this notable achievement.
Stay tuned, and remember to Turn It Up.
