    Glass: Symphony No.1 'Low' (CD)

    Philip Glass's Symphony No.1 Low is based on the music of David Bowie & Brian Eno. Composed in 1992, Glass took his departure from Bowie & Eno's beautiful melodies in crafting a three-movement 46-minute symphony. This new recording conducted by Glass champion Dennis Russell Davies is a shimmering rendition of the work. Only the second recording of the Symphony, it's been 20 years since the last one, the previous recording was recorded in the studio sectionally whereas this new OMM recording was made live in Basel Switzerland and captures the vitality and evidence of the work as never heard before.

  3. Angelique Kidjo: Sings (CD)

    On her second, highly anticipated 429 Records recording Angelique Kidjo Sings with the Orchestre Philharmonique Du Luxembourg, the visionary songwriter and vocalist teams with the ensemble s renowned conductor and composer Gast Waltzing to create an historic work that beautifully blends the classical music traditions of Europe and the powerful rhythmic excitement of the sounds of her native land. Backed by the sweeping grandeur of the 110 musician ensemble, the singer - drawing fresh, emotional power from her trademark guttural voice - re-imagines nine classic pieces from her 24 year discography and two new tunes ( Otishe, Mamae ) from the sessions of her 2014 Grammy- Winning (Best World Music Album) masterwork Eve.

    Produced by Kidjo and her husband and longtime production partner Jean Hebrail, and conducted and featuring arrangements by Waltzing, the collection is a truly multi-national affair, with the orchestra recorded first in Luxembourg (with Angelique present in the studio) and Angelique laying down her vocals, along with native percussion players from Benin, in a later session at the Digital Factory in the Normandy region of France. Additional recording and mixing was done in NYC.

  5. Arvo Pärt: The Symphonies (CD)

    All four of Arvo Parts symphonies, newly recorded with the NFM Wroclaw Philharmonic under the direction of one of Parts most trusted colleagues, Tonu Kaljuste. Each of the symphonies, as the great Estonian composer has noted, is a world unto itself. Heard in chronological order they also tell us much about Parts musical and spiritual journey, and the very different ways in which he has exercised his craft. Forty-five years separate his Symphony No. 1 (Polyphonic) written in 1963 while he was still a student of Heino Eller, from his Symphony No. 4 (Los Angeles) written in 2008, by which time he was the worlds most widely-performed contemporary composer.

  6. Adams: Nixon in China (CD)

    This is a reissue of the Grammy Award Winning recording of Nixon in China. The 1988 Grammy Award Winner, John Adams, describes this landmark as "part epic, part satire, part parody of political posturing, and part serious examination of historical, philosophical, and even gender issues." The Boston Globe called the Grammy-winning 1987 work "a milestone in American operatic history." This first recording, featuring the original cast, says Los Angeles Times music critic Mark Swed, "has an eloquence not since matched, with terrific packaging and Michael Steinberg's program notes, which really are a revelation."
