Shostakovich: 24 Preludes and Fugues Op. 87 Lowest used price: $14.99

Shostakovich composed his 24 Preludes and Fugues for the brilliant Russian pianist Tatiana Nikolayeva (whose own distinguished version is also on disc), but it's American Keith Jarrett who really nails these amazing, revelatory works which together form one of the masterpieces of 20th-century piano music. This recording is a must for all lovers of piano music and of Bach, whose own works inspired them. --David Vernier

Art of Fugue

Art of Fugue Lowest used price: $24.76

Don't expect jazzed-up Bach here. Although the New Century Saxophone Quartet swings in its own way, it's a thoroughly classical ensemble. The group's rationale for playing Bach is eloquently described in the microtype program notes, but you'll hear it for yourself on the CD. Bach never heard a saxophone, but the clarity, virtuosity, and restrained expressivity of this performance would probably have pleased him greatly. (Bach never specified his preference for instrumentation of this work.) Saxophones certainly aren't the only, or even the best, way to hear this music. But since it would benefit any music lover to hear "The Art of Fugue" as often as possible, this would be one excellent choice among several versions worth owning--and if you love the sound of saxophones, that's an added incentive, even though two pieces had to be omitted due to time limitions. This hybrid-SACD disc sounds just fine on a standard player, vividly recreating the group's live performance sound. --Leslie Gerber

Musical hybrids are always a dicey venture, running the risk of the whole's being less than the sum of the parts. Discussing the incorporation of jazz in classical music (or vice versa) can involve a quagmire of definitions. Instead, it is best to judge the works individually on their musical merits. All those represented here succeed to a greater or lesser degree. This disc opens with Gershwin's Manhattan anthem, Rhapsody in Blue, among the first to mix the two genres and yet to be bettered for seamlessness. Conductor Bernstein's love and understanding of the jazz idiom imbues works by Milhaud (La Création du monde) and Copland ("Burlesque" from Music for the Theatre [sic]) with the requisite swing to make their jazz influences ring true. But it is composer Bernstein (Prelude, Fugue, and Riffs for Solo Clarinet and Jazz Ensemble, West Side Story) who blends the two genres into a brew that is less noble experiment and more ecstatic experience. Recommended. --Michael Ross
