Shostakovich: Complete Symphonies

Shostakovich: Complete Symphonies Lowest new price: $26.45
Lowest used price: $28.12
Brand: Sante

The Complete Symphonies - Shostakovich's music is the music of 20th century Russia, from the turbulent Revolution, through the horrors of war to the communistic repression. It is the cry of a soul in torment, expressing grief, despair in a highly personal way, through irony or bitter truth. The symphonies span Shostakovich's whole life, and form a milestone in the symphonic repertoire. They are frequently played, and have gained nearly the same popularity as Mahler's symphonies. A stupendous recording by Russian conductor Rudolf Barshai, an authority in this repertoire, as he has worked closely together with the composer for a long time, and premiered the 14th symphony.

A to Z of Classical Music (3rd Extended Edition) Lowest new price: $16.29
Lowest used price: $16.29
Brand: Naxos
Model: 8555319-20

Keith Anderson's comp is a model of efficiency, packing 2 CDs and a 930-page book into a box and providing a code and password to stream and download more than 15 hours of additional music! As thick as the book is, it's small enough to take with you, offering a brief overview of the lives and works of hundreds of composers. On the CDs: selections from Brahms' Symphony No. 3 , Dvorak's Symphony No. 8 ; Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique ; Wagner's Tristan and Isolde ; Stravinsky's Petrushka , plus Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Liszt, Schubert, Schumann, Verdi, Vivaldi and more!

Is it a two-CD set with a particularly thick booklet, or a 562-page book with a compilation album attached? Either way, the unpretentious text by Keith Anderson offers an introduction to the lives and works of dozens of composers, together with recommended recordings from the Naxos and Marco Polo catalogs. Anderson includes a useful 59-page glossary of musical terms and an extensive listing of classical pieces used in films. The odd thing about the 36 extracts and complete pieces on the CDs is that they do not form an A-to-Z at all. Rather, they are arranged chronologically, from 1,000-year-old Gregorian chant to the opening movement of contemporary composer Philip Glass's Violin Concerto. Between these two points is the early music of Palestrina and Byrd; the Baroque glories of Vivaldi and Bach; the 19th-century Romantic masters, from Beethoven to Tchaikovsky; and such 20th-century greats as Rachmaninov and Stravinsky. Opera, song, and chamber music are barely represented, but only so much can fit into 151 minutes. Essentially a deluxe sampler of the vast Naxos catalogue, the discs offer a good introduction to some of the most famous and melodic music ever composed, while the book will be very useful to newcomers to the potentially confusing world of classical music. --Gary S. Dalkin

Britten: War Requiem; Sinfonia da Requiem; Ballad of Heroes Lowest new price: $27.98
Lowest used price: $3.98
Brand: Chandos

CD

While not quite the equal of Britten's own performance, Richard Hickox's version is so good that it's pointless to quibble about this or that detail. It also has two big advantages over the composer's own recording: stunning digital sound and two spectacularly performed couplings that are related in subject and mood to the main work. In fact, if you have room for only one Britten disc in you collection, this should be it. You get a comprehensive overview of the issues that concerned this most compassionate of composers: the horror of war, the corruption of innocence, and the firm belief in the power of hope. --David Hurwitz

The Ligeti Project I: Melodien / Chamber Concerto / Piano Concerto / Mysteries of the Macabre - Schönberg Ensemble / ASKO Ensemble / Reinbert de Leeuw

The Ligeti Project I: Melodien / Chamber Concerto / Piano Concerto / Mysteries of the Macabre - Schönberg Ensemble / ASKO Ensemble / Reinbert de Leeuw Lowest new price: $28.47
Lowest used price: $3.98

This first of a projected five-disc series of Ligeti's music is a perfect introduction to the sound-world of the man who is arguably our greatest living composer. It opens with Melodien, a one-movement, 13-minute piece that begins with swirling, high-pitched winds whose sinuous lines turn into a flowing stream of iridescent instrumental colors. The Chamber Concerto, completed a year earlier, is for 13 instrumentalists treated as virtuosic soloists. Each of its four movements has a distinct profile, from the polyphonic first movement, where the instruments play at different speed, to the chorale-like second, hammering third, and the final presto that builds from a menacing ostinato to the siren squeal of the clarinet at the close. Aimard is the superb soloist in the Piano Concerto. He just about owns this piece, having recorded it with Boulez and Eotvos a decade ago. It's in five movements of endless inventiveness, particularly the second, which moves from desolate quietude to energetic outbursts and peters out with a quiet wind phrase. Mysteries of the Macabre is a reworking for solo trumpet and chamber orchestra of arias from Ligeti's opera, Le Grand Macabre. An essential disc of indispensable music, brilliantly performed and recorded. --Dan Davis

Concert a Quatre; Les Offrandes Oublies; Un Sourire Lowest new price: $19.98
Lowest used price: $4.45

The Concerto á Quatre was Messiaen's last work, left unfinished on his desk at his death. His widow undoubtedly followed his wishes and style in completing the orchestration. But we can still wonder whether the diffuse impression this score makes is inherent in its conception--that was sometimes a flaw of Messiaen's music--or if it needed revisions he didn't live to make. Don't use this disc as your introduction to Messiaen's orchestral works; try the collection on Chandos (CHAN 9301) instead. For the Messiaen collector, though, this disc is indispensable, not only for his last thoughts but also for the rarely-heard works that fill the remainder. Messiaen never heard this disc, but he loved Chung's conducting of his music. --Leslie Gerber

Late in his career, Leonard Bernstein returned to the greatest orchestral work by his lifelong friend, Aaron Copland, with a performance that eclipsed all others, including Bernstein's own previous recording of the Symphony no. 3 on Sony. Though Copland's stock still hadn't climbed back to its present height, Bernstein gave the music a grandeur that made you forget how much of a cliché the Fanfare for the Common Man--which was worked into the finale of the Third--can be. In fact, many of the world-stopping qualities Bernstein brought to his second Mahler cycle for Deutsche Grammophon seem much in evidence here, with the New York Philharmonic playing as though its collective life depended on it. --David Patrick Stearns
