NEW RELEASES FOR SUMMER
Recent Releases

In celebration of arrival of Summer, a fine array of new releases is here. Newest of the new is a disc by violinist Zina Schiff with pianist Cameron Grant in performance of violin sonatas by Aaron Copland and Eric Zeisl, the latter being a World Premiere Recording. Harpist Katrina Szederkényi is heard in Fantasias & Fugues, an exquisite solo recital that shows a stunning technical ability held in check by a deep musicality. Also just in, Lazy Afternoon features an album of tuneful, charming salon music by Byron Bellows - performed by saxophonist Javier Oviedo with the St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble. Also on the lighter side is a smoky 2-CD set on MSR Jazz featuring vocalist Pam Purvis and sax-man Bob Ackerman in Two for the Road. Just released is the ninth installment in the Music of Barbara Harbach series, featuring Volume II of her ravishing orchestral music, and the 2-CD Tapestries collection featuring the sophisticated and accessible choral music of Dan Locklair. Digitally remastered, the recordings glow as never before. Maria Wildhaber is heard in a wonderful and entirely accessible program of contemporary bassoon music from Eastern Europe, Eastern Discoveries.

NOTABLY FORTHCOMING - Expect to see a 14-CD box set featuring the complete harpsichord sonatas of Antonio Soler, performed by Barbara Harbach. Also on its way is cellist Kim Cook performing Saint-Saens and Lalo, two spectacular trumpet programs from Eric Berlin and Amy Schendel and a Spanish song recital from soprano Danielle Talamantes. Equally as notably forthcoming are releases from pianists David Korevaar (Hindemith), Ann Schein (French music), Christopher Atzinger (American Lyricism) and Tien Hsieh (Bach & Beethoven), organist Felix Hell (Heroic Proportions), flutist Francesca Arnone (French music), and the Fire Pink Trio (Poetry in Motion). Also be prepared for a new recording from viol consort Parthenia!
