This "Capitol Sings" CD surveys works of Irving Berlin, one of the the greatest American songwriters. Standout performances include Kay Starr's "You're Just In Love," Betty Hutton's up-tempo "Blue Skies," and Peggy Lee's "Cheek To Cheek." There are also some lovely Nat King Cole numbers, and a seldom-heard Bobby Darrin swinger "All By Myself".

Ensemble Metamorphosen Berlin follow up on the success of their debut album with works by arguably the most well-known composer to come out of Russia; Tchaikovsky. Their debut album “Inspiration” earned 5* reviews from Cencerto Music Magazine as well as Berlin Broadcaster rbb Kulurradio. This new album includes Tchaikovsky’s “Souvenir de Florence” and his “Serenade in C Major”. Op. 48. A particular highlight of this new release are NEW ARRANGEMENTS by cellist/ director Wolfgang Emanuel Schmidt of “Valse Sentimentale” – recorded for the FIRST TIME for cello and string orchestra.

Out of the 13 selections included on this double CD, six were originally released just in Europe, two ("Out of Nowhere" and "Mexican Jumping Bean") were never out before and only five songs were on the American LP. Considering how inspired the Dave Brubeck Quartet sounds, it is surprising that the music has been so obscure for so long. Baritonist Gerry Mulligan is particularly heated on the opening two numbers (the unreleased tracks), pianist Dave Brubeck really stretches himself (check him out on "Things Ain't What They Used to Be" where he progresses from stride to free), and bassist Jack Six and drummer Alan Dawson, in addition to their solo space, are quite alert and constantly pushing the lead voices. Not only are the musicians in top form but the audience is very enthusiastic, demanding three encores. The extensive liner notes by Geoffrey Smith are also a major plus. Highly recommended.

After rubbing your eyes and maybe even hitting your forehead with the palm of your hand a few times to convince yourself that, yes indeed, in fact a young pianist has chosen to make his concerto recording debut with the Tchaikovsky and Grieg concertos, go ahead and have a listen. Denis Kozhukhin, who took first prize at the 2010 Queen Elisabeth, here partners with the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra under Vassily Sinaisky. Out of repertory that has been celebrated, picked over and just about played to death over the course of almost a century and a half, they create magic.
Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Sir Simon Rattle - Haydn: Symphonies 88-92, Sinfonia Concertante (2007/2014) [24/44]

This live recording of a group of Haydn's late masterworks lies at the intersection of several tales of trouble – that of Simon Rattle's conductorship of the venerable Berlin Philharmonic, that of the EMI label's flagging fortunes and those of the classical recording industry in general, and that of the attempts of the massive symphony orchestras rooted in the nineteenth century to remain relevant in music written by composers who for the most part had no inkling of their existence. The results are, well, troubled. Rattle tries to borrow a page from the authentic-performance book, using a small group of strings with little vibrato and striving for transparent textures that reveal Haydn's wind and horn parts.

Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker take on a myth with their complete performance of the last three symphonies by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The full diversity of Mozart’s symphonic style was on display when the Berliner Philharmoniker and Sir Simon Rattle presented the last three of these works at the 2013 season opening concert. It was also a perfect example of the orchestra’s Mozart style which during the Rattle era has seen an increased exploration of historical performance practice. The performances reveal a blend of transparency, orchestral warmth – and the inspiration of the conductor, about whom one critic wrote, “Simon Rattle deeply taps the potential of Mozart’s symphonies. […] He is not just a great musician, but a sentient artist through and through.”
