sm. BEETHOVEN

CD BEETHOVEN'S 9 SYMPHONIES (BOX SET) David Zinman, Ludwig van Beethoven
$23.38 Format: CD Release Date: Apr 27 1999 Label: ARTE NOVA RECORDS
David Zinman's Beethoven is lean, lithe, and muscular. Although his Zurich orchestra plays modern instruments, the interpretive style of these performances owes a debt to the "historically informed" approach of conductor/scholars like John Eliot Gardiner and Roger Norrington. Zinman adheres closely to Beethoven's controversially fast metronome markings. He can drive the music hard, with exciting results, but he is flexible enough to allow the lyrical melodies to breathe and sing. In the great Adagio of the Ninth Symphony, for instance, the tempo flows rather briskly, but the phrases are gracefully shaped to avoid any sense of rushing -- a problem that seriously afflicts Norrington's reading.

CD BEETHOVEN: THE STRING QUARTETS
: $107.08 Format: CD Release Date: Mar 11 1997 Label: POLYGRAM
Few of us have the time to listen to all of Beethoven's music. Exploring his 16 string quartets, however, offers the perfect overview, providing a concise survey of the composer's development and revealing some of his deepest musical thoughts.

CDIMMORTAL BELOVED Beethoven. $14.99
Although I would not recommended the movie to anyone who loves God, but I would recommend the soundtrack. The soundtrack has a good selection of Beethoven's music. I really enjoy this CD. This was the first Beethoven tape I ever had. I found myself listening to it everyday. Beethoven has become one of my favorite composers. This is the CD the Astronuts played while watching the meteor shower in Dec.

sm. CHOPIN

Do you love piano? Then you will love Chopin. You must have one or all of these.

CDCHOPIN: NOCTURNES
$28.78 Performed By Arthur Rubinstein Format: CD Release Date: Oct 25 1990 Label: RCA
I love Chopin's nocturnes. Do they ever complement a starry night!! A nocturne deals with evening or night and is a dreamy pensive composition for the piano. If you like piano at all, you must have this CD. Chopin's Nocturnes are music for the night and lovers of the night.
Night is the time for romance, mystery, and desire, so no wonder Frédéric Chopin's Nocturnes are the quintessence of 19th-century piano music. If you shut your eyes, any of these perfumed fantasies would make the perfect sound track to your own romantic movie -- filmed in black and white, of course -- complete with moonlit assignations and curtains blowing through the french doors of deserted palace ballrooms. Each nocturne has its own distinct character, and it's a tribute to Chopin's genius that he created so many diverse visions of the night. Arthur Rubinstein was closely associated with Chopin's music throughout his life. This recording was made in the pianist's later years as part of a broad survey of Chopin's major works, and it reflects a lifetime of intimacy with the music. Rubinstein -- who knew a thing or two about romance, as his autobiography vividly reveals -- plays magically, evoking the fragrant atmosphere of each nocturne. Andrew Farach-Colton

sm. MOZART

CDMOZART: VIOLIN CONCERTOS 1 Mela Tenenbaum
17.98 Format: CD Release Date: Jun 15 1999 Label: ESSAY
Here's good, old-fashioned music making, full of warmth and character. Mela Tenenbaum, a Russian-born violinist, doesn't pussyfoot around in this delightful trio of masterpieces by the young Mozart. She may not have Itzhak Perlman's smooth, sweet sound or Arthur Grumiaux's effortless elegance, but her daredevil spirit is something special. She's not afraid to dig into phrases, or to vigorously toss off a virtuoso passage. Her singing tone makes the most of the aria-like slow movements, but it's the zest of her interpretations that makes this disc worthwhile. The Czech Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra plays with verve under American conductor Richard Kapp, and the closely miked recording only enhances the invigorating spirit of these joyous performances. Andrew Farach-Colton

GREAT PERFORMERS

CDWILLIAMS KAPELL EDITION (Box Set) (William Kapell)
$111.58 Format: 9 CDs Release Date: Sep 29 1998 Label: RCA
When the plane carrying the 31-year-old William Kapell from a tour of Australia went into the side of a mountain near San Francisco on October 29, 1953, America lost the finest pianist it had ever produced. And if there are any lingering doubts that he remains The Great American Pianist, they will be totally allayed by RCA's nine-CD tribute, THE WILLIAM KAPELL EDITION. The playing here ranges from the merely extraordinary to the frankly unbelievable, whether in the new-mown freshness of the Bach D Major Partita, the rugged power of the Copland Sonata (not surprisingly, the composer's favorite recording), or the surging romance and crackling energy of Rachmaninoff's Cello Sonata (with Edmund Kurtz), Second Piano Concerto, and "Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini" -- the last-named in that unsurpassable collaboration with Fritz Reiner, who inspired the Robin Hood Dell Orchestra to play as if possessed. Unsurpassable, too, are the famous versions of the Prokofiev C Major Concerto and the pianist's early calling card, the Khachaturian Concerto, this in the legendary recording with Serge Koussevitzky that nearly makes this bombastic nonsense sound like music. In more than ten hours of music making, there isn't a single moment that doesn't offer some startling insight, some blinding revelation, some bit of technical legerdemain or interpretive magic that reminds us, again, what a wonder we lost. Given RCA's less than completely admirable treatment of the pianist in the past -- in the 1960s, they released an LP called "The Unforgettable William Kapell," which they then forgot to reissue on CD -- you should snatch up your copy without delay.
