Sony Classical, 2003
The Italian Salvatore Licitra and the Argentinian Marcelo Alvarez are, arguably the two most exciting, promising (they're in their 30s), big-voiced, bread-and-butter (or steak-and-potatoes) "Italian" tenors around. Yhey have proved themselves on the stages of the great opera houses of the world and on recordings. This CD is designed to present them to a wider audience--it is clearly meant to appeal to Three Tenors and Andrea Bocelli fans. And, ...

Mahler: Complete Symphonies (Carnegie Hall Presents)
For the May 2009 complete cycle of Mahler symphonies performed at Carnegie Hall, Daniel Barenboim and Pierre Boulez were invited to conduct. But it was Leonard Bernstein who famously first rescued Mahler's majestic symphonies from cult status and lifted them into the classical mainstream. These landmark recordings still stand as the definitive Mahler-symphony cycle; along with the complete Symphonies Nos. 1-9 ; Adagio from Symphony No. 10 , and ...

Chip Davis Presents: Renaissance Holiday
Chip Davis and London Symphony Orchestra
American Gramaphone, 1998
1998 release from Chip Davis (Mannheim Steamroller) who collaborates with members of MS and other artists. Renaissance Holiday is a cool variation on the traditional "Fresh Aire" sound. Mannheim Steamroller tackles olde Renaissance music in their familiar style, and while that occasionally can sound a little strange -- this was not music made to be played by synthesizers -- it is very, very intriguing and a very refreshing spin on their ...

Pipes of Pan at Jajouka
Brian Jones Presents
Brian Jones's trip to Morocco in 1968 included a trip to the mountain village of Jajouka guided by painter Brion Gysin. What he recorded there introduced the world at large to the Master Musicians of Jajouka, initially released in 1971. Their music is based on ritual, but is still playful. The horns, chanting, and drums of this field recording are completely trancelike. It's a shame that phasing and panning has been added to the sound in an ...

Andy Williams' Christmas Present
Of all the Andy Williams Christmas albums available, Christmas Present is by far his most religious collection. The release consists of thirteen tracks and all of them, with the possible exception of the title track, could be considered hymns. Like other male crooners from the 1960s, Williams was portrayed as a bit of a swinger, but here when he sings the "Ave Maria" he sounds as pious and pure as an altar boy. In fact, the sensitive take is one ...
