The London Symphony Orchestra, with Vladimir Horowitz, was the first to record Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No. 3. It was released 70 years ago in 1930.

Rodolphe Kreutzer's final three violin concertos are among his greatest achievements as a composer.

While handling a Beethovenian orchestra with a craftsman's sure touch, it is the purity and depth of tone, energetic fire and complete technical mastery required of the soloist that set these works among the most perfect examples of the French violin concerto.

Axel Strauss, Professor of Violin at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and heard on concert stages worldwide, has been acclaimed “an excellent violinist who plays these with wit and verve” (Limelight).

Naxos plans to record all of Kreutzer's violin concertos.

Jonas Kaufmann returns to the Italian verismo tradition to sing arias that define opera's most passionate and vulnerable leading men.

Kaufmann's international reputation is soaring as, going from strength to strength, he delivers consistently thrilling performances.

The onyx-dark beauty of his tone and the refinement and unexpected insights of his delivery mark Jonas Kaufmann a poet of tenors.

Timed for release when he makes his anticipated role debut as Maurizio in Adriana Lecouvreur at Covent Garden opposite Angela Gheorghiu, this disc includes excerpts from the Cilea work that helped put Caruso on the map.

This album also entices with rarities from Zandonai's dramatic Giulietta e Romeo and Puccini's Le Villi.

Supporting Jonas Kaufmann is Italy's leading symphonic orchestra, the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, under its dynamic music director Antonio Pappano. Both maestro and orchestra are utterly at home in this repertoire.

Aged only 17, Schubert conducted his first complete Mass setting, in F major, D. 105, in September 1814, gaining the approval of his former teacher Antonio Salieri.

An amazingly accomplished work for so young a composer, it follows Classical precedents, while already giving glimpses of Schubert's special lyrical gifts. It also makes effective use, particularly in the forward-looking Sanctus, of the vocal soloists, choir and an orchestra rich in wind and brass including three trombones.

The Mass in B flat major, D. 324, composed the following year and like its predecessor scaled for liturgical performance, similarly combines beauty with splendour.

Schubert's Masses Nos. 2, 4 and 6 are available on 8570864 and 8570381.

Thuille worked as a composer and teacher of the Münchner Schule, one of the leading musical centres of Europe at the turn of the 20th century. He was a friend of Richard Strauss and their friendship is well documented in Strauss' letters. These two string quartets were written when Thuille was a student. This CD casts a new light on a forgotten composer.

Whatever the case, it was extremely popular during the 18th and early 19th centuries, and was performed by Simon Mayr who copied the score around 1802.

Mayr's own festive Te Deum is believed to have been written for Napoleon's coronation as King of Italy in Milan Cathedral on 26th May, 1805.

Mayr's biographer Girolamo Calvi praised this effective work in the highest terms, declaring it a masterpiece.

“They come from the mean streets of south London but sing like little angels” (The Evening Standard)
Familiar to audiences across the world, the boys have a stunningly original sound, which is at once both ancient and modern. Their distinctive flowing white robes symbolise the traditional origins of their style - yet their music reaches across the generations to a new mainstream audience. LIBERA's success in album charts around the world bears witness to the extraordinary appeal of this unique 'boy band'. Enchanting audiences wherever they go, they have attracted an enthusiastic fan base in many countries, particularly the United States, Great Britain, Japan, Korea and this year also in the Philippines.

Peace follows the success of Libera's best-selling albums Angel Voices, Free, Visions and New Dawn. Each CD has been characterised by the ensemble's distinctive celestial, shimmering sound with mystical chords and ecstatic harmonies. The programme comprises songs drawn from plainsong and traditional hymns, based on themes by Mozart, Saint-Saëns, César Franck and Chopin and by Robert Prizeman and John Rutter.

Libera's founder, the composer/arranger/conductor Robert Prizeman, said, 'It is a great privilege to work regularly with the young singers of Libera, an honour to play a part in their musical development, to be fired up and challenged by their talent, bubbling enthusiasm and freshness. Each new Libera album offers me unique opportunities to write and arrange music to suit the particular sounds and talents of the current group of boys. The writing and arranging responds to the singers and vice versa - there is a mutual inspiration.'

The name Libera comes from the band's signature song based on the Libera Me portion of the Requiem Mass. The boys who make up Libera are between the ages of seven and fourteen, come from a variety of backgrounds and attend local schools. 'Normal” boys who still love to play football, skateboard, listen to R'n'B and punk music, through their involvement in Libera they have travelled the world, recorded movie soundtracks and CDs and served as backing singers to Elton John, Björk and Pavarotti. But, as one of the boys said, “The travelling and filming is fun but even if we didn't go anywhere I'd still want to do it because I just love singing.” That joy of singing comes across clearly in their performances and on their recordings.

Libera's original sound is both ancient and modern. Their flowing white robes symbolise the traditional origins of their style but their music reaches out across generations to a mainstream audience.

'Never Far Away' features four orchestral pieces by Chinese composer Bright Sheng, Shanghai Overture, the short ballet The Nightingale and the Rose, and Tibetan Love Song and Swing. The title piece, Never Far Away is a wonderful harp concerto that stretches the instrument's capabilities to the limit. It was commissioned and is performed by the pre-eminent soloist Yolanda Kondonassis.

Hailed by The New York Times for her “powerful playing and musicianly energy,” Yolanda Kondonassis is considered one of the world's foremost harpists. She made her solo debut at age 18 with The New York Philharmonic and has since appeared as guest artist with countless orchestras around the world. This disc marks her fifteenth on the Telarc label.

Bright Sheng has been a trendsetter in the world of composition. In 2001, he was selected to receive the MacArthur Foundation's prestigious “Genius Award.” The award called Sheng “an innovative composer who merges diverse musical customs in works that transcend conventional aesthetic boundaries. He bridges East and West, lyrical and dissonant styles, and historical and contemporary themes to create elegant compositions with a distinctive signature.
