Recommended TitleAntonio Vivaldi & Nicolas Chedeville
Complete Recorder Sonatas from 'Il Pastor Fido' / Stefano Bagliano, recorder
"...a delightful trip to the country we now call Italy as seen through French eyes in the late 1730s..." -ARG
Federigo Fiorillo (1755-1823): Violin Concerto; Sinfonia Concertante / Accademia D'Archi Arrigoni, Domenico Mason, violin
Recommended TitleFederigo Fiorillo (1755-1823): Violin Concerto; Sinfonia Concertante
Accademia D'Archi Arrigoni, Domenico Mason, violin
"[The soloists] are always in tune, pleasant, and full of expressive character... sunny, refreshing music at a bargain price." -ARG
Chopin: Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 2 / Ewa Kupiec, piano; Saarbrucken Radio SO, Skrowaczewski
Recommended TitleChopin: 2 Piano Concertos
Ewa Kupiec, piano; Saarbrucken Radio SO, Skrowaczewski
"The orchestra and conducting are consistently wonderful. [Pianist Ewa Kupiec] just plows thru it - with great accuracy and bright tone." -ARG

Schumann: Violin Sonatas Nos. 1 - 3 / Andrea Cortesi, violin; Marco Venturi, piano
Recommended TitleSchumann: Violin Sonatas Nos. 1 - 3
Andrea Cortesi, violin; Marco Venturi, piano
"This is one of the better recordings that I have heard of these sonatas. Andrea Cortesi and Marco Venturi get all of the tempos just right and know just where and how to stretch things out." -ARG
Alexander Scriabin: Complete Etudes / Dmitri Alexeev, piano
Recommended TitleAlexander Scriabin: Complete Etudes
Dmitri Alexeev, piano
"Alexeev plays simpler pieces - preludes, poems, and a waltz - between each set of etudes... Excellent recording with big, resonant bass, perfect complement to Alexeev's commanding style." -magazine
Flute concertos by Edouard Dupuy (1770-1822) & Ferdinand Büchner: 'Romantic Flute Concertos' / Ginevra Petrucci, flute; Orch. I Pomeriggi Musicali, Ciampi
Recommended Title'Romantic Flute Concertos'
Works by Edouard Dupuy & Ferdinand Büchner / Ginevra Petrucci, flute
"The scandalously colourful Dupuy's work is rooted in classicism... Ginevra Petrucci plays attractively, and she is well supported by the Milan-based orchestra." -The Sunday Times

Baldassare Galuppi (1706-85): Complete Concertos For Strings / Ensemble StilModerno
Recommended TitleBaldassare Galuppi (1706-85): Complete Concertos For Strings

"The music is well crafted, with many moments of interesting texture... The period-style playing is elegant and fluent." -ARG
Johann Christian Bach: Six Sonatas, Op. 16, for Harpsichord & Violin / Lina Uinskyte, violin; Marco Ruggeri, harpsichord
Recommended TitleJ.C. Bach: Six Sonatas, Op. 16, for Harpsichord & Violin
Lina Uinskyte, violin; Marco Ruggeri, harpsichord
"There is some beautiful, evocative playing here. The way Uinskyte executes her trills adds such ebullience to these delightful sonatas." -ARG
Schumann: Piano Quartets / Quartetto Klimt
Recommended TitleSchumann: Piano Quartets
Quartetto Klimt
"Balance between instruments is realistic... This bargain release is a great value for anyone wanting Schumann's early quartet, with a fine E-flat Quartet to boot." -ARG

The Renaissance Keyboard - Andrea Antico & Marco Antonio Cavazzoni: complete keyboard music / Fabio Antonio Falcone
Recommended TitleThe Renaissance Keyboard
Works of Andrea Antico & Marco Antonio Cavazzoni / Fabio Antonio Falcone
"There are two harpsichords and one organ used in the recording, all quite lovely; but a standout is the octagonal virginal, so winning with its silvery charm." -ARG
Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach: 3 Symphonies / Burkhard Glaetzner, Neues Bachisches Collegium Musicum Leipzig
Recommended TitleJohann Christoph Friedrich Bach: 3 Symphonies
Burkhard Glaetzner, Neues Bachisches Collegium Musicum Leipzig
"The program includes three pleasant symphonies... It is pretty music, with plenty of variety in the instrumental color scheme..." -ARG
Haydn: Six Duo Concertantes for two flutes / Ginevra Petrucci & GianLuca Petrucci, flutes
Recommended TitleHaydn: Six Duo Concertantes for two flutes
Ginevra Petrucci & GianLuca Petrucci, flutes
"The Haydn these two play comes from the string quartets of Opp. 9 and 33... Their rich, singing sounds match well and are captured realistically." -ARG

J.S. Bach: The Four Orchestral Suites / Virtuosi Saxoniae, Guttler
Recommended TitleJ.S. Bach: The Four Orchestral Suites
Virtuosi Saxoniae, Güttler
"Amazingly enough, that the complete recording on period instruments by Le Petite Bande from 1982 does not have many of the "HIP" affectations, and Barthold Kuijken (baroque fl) is an elegant soloist in Suite 2." -ARG
Dutch Delight: Organ Music from the Golden Age, by Sweelinck, Noordt et al. / Matthias Havinga, organ
Recommended TitleDutch Delight: Organ Music from the Golden Age
Works by Sweelinck, Noordt et al. / Matthias Havinga, organ
"[The organ's] tone is clear but warm and refined... Matthias Havinga exhibits the instrument's complete palette of tone colors. His playing here is stylish and animated." -ARG
Joachim Van den Hove (1567-1620): 'Florida' - Pavanas, Fantasias & Dances for Lute / Massimo Marchese, lute
Recommended TitleJoachim Van den Hove (1567-1620): 'Florida'
Pavanas, Fantasias & Dances / Massimo Marchese, lute
"I can't imagine anyone not being charmed by Marchese's performances here - tasteful, expressive, and delightful. He conjures a different world, a time of graceful elegance..." -ARG

Michelangelo Rossi (1602-1656): Toccatas and Correntes for Organ and Harpsichord / Riccardo Castagnetti, organ & harpsichord
Recommended TitleMichelangelo Rossi (1602-1656): Toccatas and Correntes
Riccardo Castagnetti, organ & harpsichord
"Cascades of notes are appropriately like a whirlwind... all resources of both instruments are on full display." -ARG
Music for Flute and Organ: Works of Hartmann, Doppler, Hiller, Caplet et al. / Daniele Ruggieri, flute; Andrea Toschi, organ
Recommended TitleMusic for Flute and Organ
Works of Hartmann, Doppler, Hiller, Caplet / Daniele Ruggieri & Andrea Toschi
"Balance and blend between flute and organ or flute with harmonium is superb, and the clarity and accuracy present each selection in the best possible light." -ARG
Erich Wolfgang Korngold (1897-1957): Violin Concerto & Violin Sonata / Kristof Barati, violin; Gabor Farkas, piano; Philharmonie Zuidnederland; Otto Tausk
Recommended TitleKorngold: Violin Concerto & Violin Sonata
