  1. Yuja Wang: Rachmaninov and Prokofiev Piano Concertos

    Conductor: Gustavo Dudamel
    Orchestra: Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra

    Yuja Wang and Gustavo Dudamel are joined by the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela in two unforgettable performances! The two Russian piano concertos on the album were written just three years apart though they present very different perspectives, with Rachmaninov celebrating the tradition of the 19th Century and Prokofiev facing forward into the 20th.
  2. The Perlman Sound (3 CD set)

    No one could deny that Itzhak Perlman holds a special place in the world of music - and no one could define it more eloquently than his old friend and colleague, the pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim: "It is quite impossible to imagine today's violin heritage without the absolute musical genius of Perlman." The most obvious manifestation of that genius is the famous Perlman Sound - lustrous, warm and generous, its impact compounded by often astounding virtuosity; and yet Perlman makes it all look so easy. In fact, he communicates a positive joy in his playing.

    Released for Mr Perlman's 70th birthday, this 3-CD collection explores his artistry from the finest concerto highlights (Mendelssohn, Brahms, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Korngold, Sibelius, The Four Seasons), to virtuoso solo and chamber repertoire (Paganini Caprice No.24, Bach Partita No.3, the Méditation from Thaïs, Flight of the Bumblebee, Zapateado) and klezmer and jazz selections. The duo partners and conductors are some of the 20th century's biggest classical stars, many of whom count among Perlman's dearest friends and collaborators.
  3. Esa-Pekka Salonen Box Set - The Complete Sony Recordings (61 CDs)

    Few artists are as multifaceted as Esa-Pekka Salonen, Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic from 1992-2009 and currently its Conductor Laureate - not only in the way he combines his conducting success with his composing, but also in the scope of the repertoire that he has championed over the past 30 years and more. This is the largest collection to date of the work of this vital figure in contemporary music-making.
  4. Esa-Pekka Salonen: LA Variations

    Esa-Pekka Salonen composed LA Variations in 1996 on commission from the Los Angeles Philharmonic, with a dedication to Ernest Fleischmann, then Executive Vice President and Managing Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association.

    Salonen and the Philharmonic premiered the piece in January 1997 at subscription concerts at the Music Center and have since performed it in New York (May 1997), at the Hollywood Bowl (August 1998), and on their subsequent European tour that August and September, in London, Brussels, Lucerne, Cologne, and Frankfurt. The work was performed on a special Green Umbrella concert at UCLA’s Royce Hall in January 2000, and in 2003 it was encored at the Hollywood Bowl prior to an Edinburgh Festival concert and the second of three Opening Galas for the new Walt Disney Concert Hall. At each performance, audience reaction has been extremely enthusiastic, beginning with standing ovations at the Los Angeles premiere.

    Press comments have been consistently favorable, e.g., “It is music of immediate appeal and relevance that doesn’t need to overthrow Minimalism to get there. This is an important step in musical culture at the end of the century…” (Los Angeles Times). “Intoxicatingly varied and imaginative…lots of humor.” (USA Today). “Splashy and stylish debut, calculated to impress.” (Newsday). “This Dionysian hymn to the orchestra is a work of pure enjoyment of sonority, elaborated by a mind as free as it is rigorous. The seductiveness and dynamism of this music have an immediate effect, and are clad in a language whose originality is far above scholastic squabbles.” (Le Soir).
  5. Piano Music of Salonen, Stucky and Lutoslawski

    World première recordings of Stucky's Four Album Leaves and Three Little Variations For David, Lutoslawski's Sonata For Piano and Salonen's Three Preludes. Piano by Gloria Cheng.
  6. Esa-Pekka Salonen: Out of Nowhere

    Salonen’s dazzling Violin Concerto is brought stunningly to life in this landmark 2012 recording by Leila Josefowicz. She returns to perform this signature work with the LA Phil on February 11th, with the composer conducting.
