Idris MuhammadHouse Of The Rising Sun ... CD
Kudu/King (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
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"!

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.

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.

✨✧ VariousEugene Istomin – The Concert & Solo Recordings (12CD set) ... CD
Columbia/Sony, 1950s/1960s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Way more than just a collection of key recordings from pianist Eugene Istomin – as many of these titles make their CD debut in the set, and the package also features a full disc's worth of unreleased material – with 10 never-heard tracks curated by Maria Casals Istomin! The core albums are key titles in the Columbia Records classical catalog of the 50s and 60s – both solo and concerto recordings, of work by Chopin, Bach, Brahms, Beethoven, Schmann, Rachmaninoff, and Schubert. The Brahms material is especially great – and Issac Stern joins Istomin on one recording. Some of the orchestral performances feature Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra – and the Bach material is a great entry in Columbia's Casals/Prades Festival series. All albums come in cool LP-styled sleeves, with original record cover art – and the package also features a booklet of notes and a box too! CD

✨✧ VariousMaurizi Pollini – Complete Recordings On Deutsche Grammophon (55CD/3DVD) ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 1970s/1980s/1990s/2000s/Early 2010s. New Copy 55CD & 3DVD ... Out Of Stock
A lifetime's worth of recordings from legendary pianist Maurizio Pollini – whose complete Deutsche Grammophon work is presented here – in a limited package that offers up each album in a tiny LP-styled sleeve, complete with original artwork! Pollini on DG is an especially strong solo artist – as you'll here on works by Schumann, Chopin, Beethoven, Schubert, Debussy, Stravinsky, Boulez, Schoenberg, and others – a mix of classical, romantic, and modern compositions that are handled by Pollini with a strong sense of technique, but also just the right element of personality to make these recordings extremely noteworthy – especially given the decades over which they were recorded. The box also features a bonus CD – the first release of Prokofiev's Third Piano Concerto with the NHK Symphony under Maxim Shostakovich – recorded in 1974. The set also includes 3DVDs – concert work with Karl Bohm and Claudio Abbado – plus the documentary De Main De Maitre. Also includes a 180 page hardcover book – with copious notes, rare photos, new liner notes, and an essay by producer Christopher Alder. CD

✨✧ 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

✨✧ VariousDavid Oistrakh Edition - Complete Recordings On Deutsche Grammophon (22CD set) ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), New Copy 22 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of work by one of the greatest violinists of the 20th Century – a player who could master difficult pieces with ease, and bring his own edge to more familiar works in the repertoire! This box set features David Oistrakh in both modes – on under-reissued albums for the Deutsch Grammophon, Decca, Philips, and Westminster labels – all presented here with their original artwork, in tiny LP-style sleeves that take us back to the years when Oistrakh was first making waves in the US when these titles were issued on vinyl. Oistrakh plays mostly violin, but also a bit of viola too – and even acts as conductor in a few spots – on material that's dominated by violin concertos, but also features a few piano trios and sonatas too. Composers include Paganini, Wieniawski, Kreisler, Dvorak, Chopin, Hindemith, Bruch, Janacek, Bach, Vivaldi, Beethoven, Goldberg, Prokfiev, and Debussy – and other musicians include Igor Oistrakh on violin, Hans Pischner on harpsichord, Frida Bauer on piano, and Sviatoslav Knushevitsky on cello. 22 CDs in all – and a nice booklet of notes!
