The Seattle Symphony and conductor Gerard Schwarz are persuasive advocates of Schuman's powerful music . dacapo Holmboe Box set Vagn Holmboe counts as one of the greatest 20th-century composers of string quartets . "So good are the Kontra Quartet's interpretations that one actually becomes unaware of them, and dwells on the music itself, which is unremittingly glorious . Very strongly recommended ." (Gramophone) "The Kontra Quartet conveys a stunning sense of familiarity in these terrae incognitae that make each quartet well worth exploring ." (Classics Today) John Baldessari: This not That John Baldessari is one of the pioneers of conceptual art, which revolutionized contemporary art in the 1960s, and is still a profound influence on young artists today .

Albert Roussel: The Complete symphonies "With this marvelous bundle of French masterworks by the quietly celebrated Albert Roussel, Naxos again shows us that there is a great deal of outstanding repertoire patiently awaiting our attention . Stéphane Denève's gold-plated performances and the splendid sonics of these recordings make this new set a reference edition of these important works; treasures of the lingering late romanticism from the early 20th century ." -Jon Feidner, ArkivMusic .com PG

des Jeunes Gens Modernes Surfing on the punk wave, and apart from music styles like disco, funk, ska or reggae, a chaotic musical scene started in the late 70s and early 80s, melding rock energies, punk nihilism and electronic experiments . This 2-CD set melts bands of the French New Wave scene with darker ensembles . This compilation presents a selection of original tracks and several covers from bands who claim this musical heritage . La superbe: Benjamin Biolay "La Superbe" offers a perfect fusion of chansons and pop-songs . From the sharp arrangements of XTC, to the inspired tunes of the early Smiths, through the refined Label Factory raw sounds from the 80s or political hip hop of The Streets, Benjamin reveals for the first time his own personal fondness for the British scene .
