Just Opened, Feb 1, 2013

We did not play Just Opened last week because of the tower work taking us off air, so 
this Friday was "give-away" day... we had multiple copies of several CDs today.
    

THE ART OF FUGUE
Andrew Rangell, piano
Steinway & Sons
ISBN# 0 34062 30012 9
Many have recorded the entire Goldberg Aria variations... far fewer have approached Bach's fugues with the same attention and committment.  Here's a secret for listening to fugues and not getting lost:  listen to the bass line.


BEETHOVEN
Triple Concerto & Trio
Claremont Trio
BRIDGE 9395
ISBN# 0 90404 93952 5
The renowned Claremont trio turns their attention to works of Beethoven in these two major works.  My delight of the week!
NICO MUHLY
Seeing is Believing
LONDON DECCA 478 2731
ISBN# 0 28947 82731 3
Modern composer Muhly was mentored by beloved composer John Rutter (who was our featured composer in December).  His music here moves back and forth from his own modern works to interpretations of works by Gibbons and Byrd... if you've been looking for the link between early music and modern music... this may be it!

LA DIRINDINA &
Pur nel Sonno Almen Tal'ora &
other works by D. Scarlatti
Ars Lyrica Houston
Dorian Solo Luminous 92159
ISBN# 0 53479 21592 5
2 short opera works by Domenico Scarlatti intersperced with 2 of his beloved keyboard sonatas (he never returned to the opera genre once he began writing his keyboard sonatas).

Join us next week for more new releases, Just Opened.
