Classical Album of the Week

March 19, 2018. As if Yannick Nézet-Séguin weren’t busy enough with The Philadelphia Orchestra, the Met Opera, his Orchestre Métropolitain, and the Rotterdam Philharmonic! He’s also been recording regularly with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. Yannick’s latest venture with that group is Visions of Prokofiev, featuring superstar violinist Lisa Batiashvili.

March 12, 2018. Fugue State highlights music from two centuries of keyboard composers from the High Baroque period.  Pianist Alan Feinberg interprets a musical range beginning with Danish-German composer Dieterich Buxtehude and concluding with Bach and Handel. 

Week of March 5, 2018. The album Romance is a luscious collection of works by composers ranging from J. S. Bach to cinema composer Hans Zimmer. It’s a repackaging of some of pianist Lang Lang’s recordings from the last seven or eight years, put together on one disc, with romance in mind.

Week of February 26, 2018. Pianist Lara Downes has put together a fascinating tribute to Leonard Bernstein, celebrating the 100th birthday of the conductor/composer/pianist.
