Zhu Xiao-Mei

May 20, 2017

Xiao-K04a[Mirare-2CD]Zhu Xiao-Mei is an extraordinary musician with an extraordinary story.

I was so moved by this little preview of her film, that I will probably never find, that I bought all her Bach recordings. Exquisitely beautiful.

Saint-Saens: Piano Concertos

May 16, 2017

61MpslRkkFL._SS500Composer:  Camille Saint-Saëns
Works: Piano Concertos, Vol. 2
Performer: Romain Descharmes and Malmo Symphony Orchestra

I have a deep, emotional attachment to these concertos. For 40+ years my favorite recording of them has been the one by Aldo Ciccolini. This new recording rivals and maybe even exceeds its beauty. So far they’ve released the first three concertos in two volumes. I hope the remaining two concertos are coming soon.
