Music News & Info: Classical

The musical haul from this Christmas

 

Let’s see:

  • The complete recordings of Martha Argerich on Deutsche Grammophon and Phillips (published by Decca)
  • A Blue-ray featuring Ms. Argerich and Mischa Maisky in the world premiere of “Romantic Offfering,” a double concerto for Piano, Cello, and Orchestra by Rodion Shchedrin and the Sonata in A Major for Cello and Piano by César Franck, plus the Dvořák Scherzo capriccioso in D-flat Major, and the Shostakovich Symphony No. 9
  • The CD box set “Giulini in America:  Los Angeles Philharmonic” (I know, kinda shocking I didn’t already have it)
  • The Blue-ray of “Foo Fighters Live at Wembley Stadium” — a great concert video overall, and especially notable for capturing the band playing “Rock and Roll”  with Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, with Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins switching their usual places  (click HERE to watch)
  • Not pictured:  The albums “My Room in the Trees” and “We Walked in Song” by The Innocence Mission

Yeah, I’d say I scored.  Thank you, Mrs. CKDH!
