What future releases tickle your fancy?

I'll start.  :)

Some releases coming out in April and May, plus one due out this month:

Stephen Hough plays the Mendelssohn "Serious Variations", Beethoven's op. 111, and a selection of waltzes: Weber's "Invitation to the Dance," two Chopin waltzes, Liszt's Mephisto No 1, and the "Waltzing Matilda."

Steven Osborne tackles the complete preludes.

Naxos inaugurates a series of Bax music for piano and orchestra with the Symphonic Variations, featuring pianist Ashley Wass, conductor James Judd, and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.

Also possibly anticipating the Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra / Gustavo Dudamel recording of Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony and the Francesca da Rimini.

The new erato:
A few things still marked as preorder only at mdt which will be ordered on release:

And of course some EMI Icon boxes available March 23rd, prime of which is the Hans Hotter set.

Great idea for a thread, Brian!

In these recordings, the earliest of which were made after he had won joint first prize at the All- Union Piano Competition in Moscow, Richter’s dazzling technique, fluency of execution and seamless legato are already to the fore. His 1948 recording of the Fantasiestücke, Op. 12, is here reissued for the first time since the original 78rpm issue.

Naxos Historical 8111352

I've had the Dodgson vol. 2 on my "buy" list for a few months now.  Think I'll finally get to it; vol. 1 is getting lonely.


Volume II of Carpe Dieme Quartet's recording of the string quartets on Naxos.

I'm emailing them today!  :)
