Just Opened, Feb. 8, 2013


"A Little More Violin, Please" is the title of Just Opened today, where we explore a variety of new releases, with a little more violin.

VIOLIN FOR ONE
Stanislav Pronin, violin
DORIAN SOLO LUMINOUS 92139

An adventuresome combination of baroque, classic and modern works for solo violin from this young "violin stallion."
LISZT "VISIONS"
Martin Berkofsky, piano
ARTS 47757-8
ISBN# 6 00554 77578 4
Mature virtuoso Berkofsky reflects his introspective spiritual interests in some of Franz Liszt's more overtly "religious" works.
Look under "Classical Chat" for my interview with Martin Berkovsky.

SEVENTH HEAVEN
music of Andrew Phillips &
Andrew Skeet
VOICEPRINT 555
ISBN# 0 805772 055520

Modern film music of these accomplished British composers.   These most brief works create small musical pictures, the majority of them very much along the meditative pace and feel of new age music, beautifully orchestrated.

FRENCH FANTASY
Maria Bachmann, violin
Adam Neiman, piano
BRIDGE 9394
ISBN# 0 90404 93942 6
Timeless, important chamber works for violin and piano, performed with lyricism and excellence.  May I have 2 delights this week?  This is my 2nd delight of the week!  Luscious familiar works.


GIOVANNI PAOLO COLONNA
Psalms & Vespers (1637-1695)
Houston Chamber Choir & Orchestra
Robert Simpson, conductor
MSR 1437
ISBN# 6 81585 14372 8
Exquistie early vocal works.
Rarity and performance beauty make this My Delight of the week!


Thank you for listening!  Kara Dahl Russell
