Canteloube: Chants d'Auvergne [Special Edition / Bonus DVD] B&N Link
Special CD + DVD Edition.
This package includes a generously-filled 76-minute CD of Series 1, 2, 3 (1 song), 4 & 5 of the ever-popular CHANTS D'AUVERGNE, plus a 53 minute DVD with a selection of the songs. The 53 minute film was shot on location in the beautiful countryside of the Auvergne, in central France. Kiri Te Kanawa's recording of the CHANTS D'AUVERGNE is one of her most popular and best-selling recordings, and the DVD offers a stunning visual complement to the CD.



Hero-Tan Gun's Score - B&N link
Philadelphia Inquirer:
Hero requires high-caliber music that captures the film's ancient Chinese milieu and shrewdly fulfills the singular needs of a film that's out to blur genres. In other words, this is an assignment for Tan Dun.... The score turns the film into a pageantlike series of hot, MTV-like variations on a heroic theme. -David Patrick Stearns



SONGS of Ernesto Lecuona by Carole Farley - Amazon link
Reviews in GRAMOPHONE and INTERNATIONAL RECORD REVIEW, praised this recording above all other vocal albums of Lecuona's songs. John Constable is English, and a specialist in contemporary music and Barroque, but he plays Lecuona like a native Cuban. Carole Farley is an American opera singer, famous for her difficult roles at the Metropolitan Opera and other houses.



Mendelssohn: Trio No. 1; Dvorák: Dumky Trio - B&N link
Long recognized as the leading piano trio in a competitive field, the Beaux Arts Trio is known for precise, straightforward performances and recordings of everything in the standard Central European trio literature. In concert, the group makes frequent forays into contemporary and non-mainstream music, but this is hardly evident in its conservative discography.



American Angels / Anonymous 4 - Amazon link
This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players. Anonymous 4 is recognized and acclaimed for its explorations and superlative performances of many forms of early music. The group's usual choices for source material are centuries-old codices, ancient texts, or long forgotten manuscripts. AMERICAN ANGELS instead finds the foursome delving into collections such as 'The Southern Harmony' and 'The Sacred Harp'
