Among America's most admired, awarded and frequently performed composers, Ellen Taafe Zwilich (now in her 70s) remains young at heart . Performed here by virtuoso pianist Jeffrey Biegel, Millennium Fantasy is based on a folk song that Zwilich's grandmother sang to her as a child . Images drew its inspiration from a number of paintings held at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D .C ., including the Alice Bailly self-portrait reproduced on the cover of this disc . Zwilich, herself featured in Schulz's famous Peanuts ® comic strip, returned the favor with a delightful series of musical portraits of Schroeder, Linus, Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Lucy, Peppermint Patty and Marcie . Complete beethoven piano Sonatas (peter takacs) Reflecting on this immense labor of love, Takacs writes, "I have tried to relate to the written text in as thorough a way as possible . This process of deduction has involved consulting primary materials such as autograph sources, sketchbooks, first editions, and the most recent scholarship I could find, and has re-confirmed my growing awareness that the text is a door to investigation rather than an immutable 'fact on the ground'... This has been an enriching experience ." Verdi: messa da requiem A musical force around the world, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra is consistently hailed as one of the finest international orchestras . The CSO inaugurates Riccardo Muti's tenure as music director with one of the most anticipated releases of the year-Verdi's Requiem Mass, featuring the Chicago Symphony Chorus and four outstanding soloists . This stunning performance captures both the pathos and passion of Verdi's masterpiece . André previn: A bridge between two Worlds Previn, a cosmopolitan pianist, conductor and composer, has four Academy awards for film adaptations and was one of the most influential jazz musicians of the `50s and `60s . A Bridge Between Two Worlds is a portrait of Previn's fascinating musicianship and also a candid look at his private life, including his relationships with his ex-wives, Mia Farrow and Anne-Sophie Mutter .

Astor Piazzolla's name has become synonymous with tango, the signature dance of his native country, Argentina . In the Sinfonía Buenos Aires, Piazzolla's development of symphonic tango is notable for brilliant, original and often complex orchestration . His Bandoneón Concerto provides the soloist with ample opportunities for drama, pathos and virtuosity . Las Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas, a series of single tango movements with several references to Vivaldi's famous work, is a vivid sequence in which the changing moods of the seasons are expressed by means of an almost limitless emotional range and depth . black Coffee Jazz vocalist Louise Rogers has a growing fan base, thanks to her beautiful burnished tone, clear diction, flawless intonation, and impeccable musicianship . Her natural, unforced delivery hearkens back to Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald, and Doris Day . And while she may possess considerable technique, Rogers takes a more relaxed and restrained approach on Black Coffee, her first recording for Chesky . This less-is-more approach pays huge dividends on this wonderfully rewarding collection . PG

Victoire - Cathedral City Victoire's first full-length album follows on the heels of the group's debut EP, A Door into the Dark, released March 2009 . Sonically, Cathedral City continues in the direction of its predecessor, with rich, dark textures, solipsistic harmonies, and sampling and electronics used to eerie effect . Cathedral City showcases a group that is mastering its sound, revealing the full extent of composer / keyboardist Missy Mazzoli's sweeping artistic vision . PG 57 richard Wagner: rienzi This early Wagner opera is stylistically closer to Meyerbeer and bel canto than to the composer's later masterworks . Yet even this early work is "so fantastically beautiful that it takes one's breath away" (Berliner PG Zeitung) . In this modernized staging by Philipp Stölzl, who condensed the 73 five-act opera into a little over two hours, "Rienzi" becomes a startlingly powerful and timeless parable of power and abuse . The orchestra is led by young Sebastian Lang-Lessing . NeW to the Naxos of Canada Family of Distributed Labels: Compass records Called "one of the greatest independent labels of the last decade" by Billboard Magazine, Compass has provided a thriving haven of creativity for artists and a reliable beacon of quality for music fans . The acquisition of Green Linnet and Mulligan Records has made Compass a leader in Celtic and roots music . Composers Concordance Composers Concordance is a New York-based, nonprofit, composer-oriented music presenting organization devoted to a wide spectrum of contemporary music . Gothic Catalog The mission of the Gothic Catalog family of labels is to generate literacy and enthusiasm in classical music, particularly music for choirs and organ .
