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 . Korngold: String Quartets 1, 2 & 3 The Doric String Quartet is now firmly established as one of the outstanding quartets of its generation, regularly performing at major festivals and venues throughout the world . By the time he started work on his First String Quartet, Korngold had already written what many consider to be his magnum opus, the opera Die tote Stadt. The First String Quartet is notable for its adventurous harmony, the Second for its sheer wealth of melodic appeal, while the Third uses material from his film scores . PG 37 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 60 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 76 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 America 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 . Includes Loft Records, ReZound, Gothic Records, Clarion Records, WNC and Quilisma . Warner Classics Warner Classics encompasses specialist labels Teldec, Das Alte Werk, Erato, the Warner Classics imprints, Lontano and Apex . Many acclaimed artists are included in the Warner Classic catalog from José Serebrier and Chanticleer to Daniel Barenboim and Plácido Domingo . PG
