VariousSlava – The Art Of Rostropovich (3CD set) ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon, 1950s/1960s/1970s. New Copy 3CD ... $16.99 18.99
A beautiful tribute to the genius of Mstislav Rostropovich – one of the greatest cellists of the 20th Century, and a musician who really helped transform the role of the instrument in classical music! This package brings together music from three decades of recording – some of Rostropovich's key moments, in a 3CD set that features extended presentation of the material – which includes Dvorak's Concerto For Cello & Orchestra In B Minor and Tchaikovsky's Variations On A Rococo Theme For Cello & Orchestra – both recorded in 1968 with Herbert Von Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic. CD2 features a performance of Saint Saens Concerto For Cello & Orchestra No 1 with Grigory Stolyarov conducting the Soviet Symphony Orchestra Of The All-Union Radio, followed by duets with pianist Martha Agerich on Chopin's Sonata For Piano & Cello In G Minor, and duets with Rudolf Serkin on Brahms' Sonata For Piano & Cello No 1 In E Minor. CD 3 features a beautiful performance of Alexander Glazunov's Chant Du Menestral with the Boston Symphony, conducted by Seiji Ozawa, a reading of Tchaikovsky's Andante Cantabile that has Rostropovich conducting the Berlin Philharmonic, and other works by Chopin, Schumann, Rachmaninov, Borodin, Paganini, Popper, and Prokofiev.

✨✧ VariousAlexis Weissenberg – The Complete RCA Album Collection (7CD set) ... CD
RCA/Sony, Late 60s. New Copy 7CD ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic entry in this series of RCA classical reissues – a box set that features all the recordings made by pianist Alexis Weissenberg for the label during the late 60s – plus earlier debut material for Columbia Records! Weissenberg was part of a wave of postwar talent that fled the east for the west – and during the time of these recordings, his talents flowered magnificently – as you'll hear on well-recorded versions of sonatas and preludes by Haydn, Chopin, Prokofiev, Scriabin, and Debussy – as well as concertos by Bartok and Rachmaninov. The box presents all the original albums in LP-styled sleeves that preserve the vintage look of the recordings – and the package also comes with notes on the music and Weissenberg as well! CD

✨✧ Idris MuhammadHouse Of The Rising Sun ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A surprising jazz funk stunner from drummer Idris Muhammad – part of his great second chapter of work for CTI in the 70s! Idris is working here in a style that's very different than his heavy-footed funky work on Prestige and Blue Note – and while it's easy to criticize him for not keeping the same old breakbeat funk style, it's also important to give him a lot of credit for pushing his vision way past the simple stock style of the earlier days! The record's a very nice set of complicated jazzy grooves – some a bit clubby, but many very nice, and with the kind of sophisticated funk arrangements that were on the best Kudu records. No surprise that Dave Matthews is putting together most of the cuts, save for one excellent groove that's arranged by Tom Harrell. Players include Fred Wesley, Ronnie Cuber, Eric Gale, and Wilbur Bascomb – and titles include "Baia", "Sudan", "Hey Pocky A Way", "Theme For New York City", which is based on the same Chopin haunting tune as Serge Gainsbourg's "Jane B"!
