Deutsche Grammophon, 2017. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Beautiful solo piano work from Joep Beving – material that's maybe rooted in a tradition that goes back to French composers who include Satie and Debussy, but which also has some of the more contemporary warmth of some of his Deutsche Grammophon contemporaries, like Max Richter! Yet unlike ... LP, Vinyl record album
SESCSP (Brazil), 2017. New Copy
A set that features two fantastic pieces by composer Camargo Guarnieri – both full of color and light, both with a soaring piano performance by Cristina Ortiz, a player who really opens up the promise of the music! The CD also features an early composition (1902) by Alberto Nepomuceno, of ... CD

For Seasons
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 2017. New Copy

Archiv Produktion/Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 1960. New Copy 3LP (reissue)
A classic reading of Bach's cello suites – and a package that's not just important in the rediscovery of these works at midcentury, but also to the growing role of cello soloists in recorded classic music! Pierre Fournier was easily one of the greatest European musicians on the instrument at ... LP, Vinyl record album
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 1997. New Copy
Gil Shaham is superb on his reading of Arvo Part's "Fratres" – a piece dedicated to Gideon Kremer, and played here with as much deftness and edge as we find in Kremer's own best work of the time. The larger orchestra fills in amidst the strings with growing force as the piece moves ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia (Japan), 1998. New Copy
A transcendental performance of the 12 Etudes by Liszt – performed by Yukio Yokoyama on piano, and recorded with a beautifully rich sound! There's a great sense of "room" in the production – as the notes move into space, and grow with their own resonance – a quality ... CD
Henryk Szeryng In Recital – With Charles Reiner
RCA (Japan), 1959. New Copy
An incredible performance from this legendary violinist – one that has all the complex dynamics of his work from earlier years – but presented with a lot more subtlety in this intimate set of duets with pianist Charles Reiner! The well-recorded set is a standout from the Living Stereo ... CD
