Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra

WRTI's Mark Pinto, host of the Classical New Releases show, fills you in on the latest and the greatest classical music CDs every Saturday at 5 pm. Here are five newly released recordings he recommends:

Sokolov: The Salzburg Recital. Though celebrated for the breadth of his repertoire, epic interpretations, and boundless imagination, Russian-born pianist Grigory Sokolov has become something of a living legend and a well-kept secret in America. 

JoAnn Falletta, conductor

May 10, 2008

Listen to Jill's interview with conductor JoAnn Falletta, and the radio broadcast premiere of Ernst von Dohnanyi's Violin Concerto No. 2 in C minor with Michael Ludwig, violin soloist, and Maestra Falletta conducting the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. Falletta, conductor of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, will discuss this unique concerto for violin and orchestra - which does not use a violin section at all. Instead, it highlights the viola section and the rest of the full orchestra.
