  1. Salonen: Cello Concerto (CD)

    “It has been a very great pleasure and honour to write a concerto for one of the most unique life- givers and communicators of our time, Yo-Yo Ma. It has been inspiring to know that his technique knows no limits. Perhaps more important: nor does his imagination.”

    - Esa-Pekka Salonen

    Re-live the excitement as LA Phil Conductor Laureate Esa-Pekka Salonen leads the Los Angeles Philharmonic and world-renowned cello virtuoso Yo-Yo Ma in this world-premiere of Salonen’s epic composition - a piece the Los Angeles Times noted, “gets its impetus from cosmology and our attempts to find our individuality amid a landscape of incomprehensible forces.”

    Featured Artists:
    Los Angeles Philharmonic
    Esa-Pekka Salonen, conductor
    Yo-Yo Ma, cello
  2. LA Master Chorale: Muhly CD

    "A Good Understanding," which will come out on the Decca Classics label, will feature six works by American composer Nico Muhly. "Nico's music is a fantastic fit with the Master Chorale," music director of the Los Angeles Master Chorale Grant Gershon says, "and Decca not only has wonderful resources and an international reputation, but shares many similar interests with us."

    Accompanying the Master Chorale are organist Kimo Smith, the Los Angeles Children's Chorus, a string quartet, a brass octet and a trio of percussionists. Gershon had long hoped to record at Disney Hall, the Chorale's home since 2003. He says the (recording) session "allowed us to capture the experience our audience has of hearing our sound, a natural acoustic sound, in a space known for acoustic brilliance."

  4. Beatles: Live at the Bowl (VINYL)

    The Beatles: Live At The Hollywood Bowl is a vinyl LP album that captures the joyous exuberance of the band's three sold-out concerts at Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl in 1964 and 1965. While The Beatles: Live At The Hollywood Bowl references the long out of print 1977 album, it is an entirely new release, directly sourced from the original three track tapes of the concerts.
  5. The Walt Disney Concert Hall Organ DVD and CD Set

    Immerse yourself in this narrated history of the extraordinary Walt Disney Concert Hall pipe organ, which features interviews with architect Frank Gehry, tonal designer Manuel Rosales, and organ builder Caspar von Glatter-Götz. Accompanying CD includes 13 organ works played by 6 organists from the Los Angeles area.
  6. Zubin Mehta Conducts Brahms (CD Box Set)

    When Sony Classicals new complete Brahms cycle with Zubin Mehta conducting the Israel Philharmonic was first released, the Baltimore Sun reviewer referred to a marriage of passion performances fine enough to recommend to any listener who wants his Brahms in a single collection. The Symphony No. 1 receives a heroic, turbulent performance in which Mehta and the fine orchestra of which he was long ago appointed music-director-for-life keep raising the thermostat until in the final movement they all but blow the roof off. The Symphony No. 2, which receives a similarly passionate performance, may be even better. Nos. 3 and 4, the reviewer goes on to say, are also beautiful. This major new reissue also contains the Haydn Variations and Tragic Overture.
  7. Esa-Pekka Salonen: Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique

    Recorded live at the Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, London
  8. Esa-Pekka Salonen: Le Sacre du Printemps (SACD)

    LA PHIL RECOMMENDED: Salonen’s live recording at Walt Disney Concert Hall on this hybrid SACD simply could not sound any better. Stunning.

    This is Esa-Pekka Salonen’s debut live recording from the Walt Disney Concert Hall and his first recording as the principal conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic on this label. The central piece, Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du Printemps was conducted by Salonen on the inaugural night of the Hall in 2003, a masterpiece that becomes something of a miracle within the outstanding acoustics of the Walt Disney Hall.

    This recording captures the energy, beauty and musical power of this extraordinary collaboration.
  9. Jazz At The Hollywood Bowl 1956 (CD)

    Jazz At The Hollywood Bowl was the first recorded jazz concert at the prestigious Los Angeles outdoor venue. It was a prime example of jazz elevated to the concert stage, a concept developed by Norman Granz - record producer, label owner, artist manager and the foremost jazz promoter in the world. It was recorded August 15, 1956, the year Granz established Verve Records, and featured some of Verve's greatest talent: Ella Fitzgerald, Art Tatum, the Oscar Peterson Trio, et al.

    Jazz At The Hollywood Bowl was issued as a 2-LP set back then but, incredibly, had never been released on CD until now, 55 years after its original release. Available on 2 CDs, this Verve Select edition of Jazz At The Hollywood Bowl now includes 11 previously unreleased Louis Armstrong recordings: Armstrong had been heard on the original 2-LP set in two duets with Ella but the trumpeter's full set could not be included on the original LP. The album now has all of the songs performed that night and the show has been restored to its original running order - on the original LP Granz had to alter the sequencing in order to stay within time constraints for vinyl albums.

    Other highlights from the set, besides Armstrong and his All Star Orchestra are: an outstanding jam session featuring Flip Phillips, Illinois Jacquet, Harry "Sweets" Edison and Roy Eldridge backed by Buddy Rich and the Oscar Peterson Trio with Herb Ellis and Ray Brown; Art Tatum, utterly captivating with just his hands on the piano keys; Peterson's Trio's brief but musically telepathic set; Ella, just entering the full flower of her remarkable career; and the swinging finale with the entire ensemble.

    Jazz At The Hollywood Bowl is in a digi-pak with a faithful reproduction of the original artwork, more artists photos, detailed annotations and a new essay by jazz producer and historian Bob Porter.
