This is actually a very exciting release of major works by two important (but overlooked) American composers from the mid-19th century.  Both of these men held major posts in the American Classical music community and promoted support of American Classical composers and music, and were well-known during their lifetimes.

Any new recording of their works is deserving of notice and support.

Most interesting.

The Fry Niagara symphony was one of the very earliest Naxos American Classics. ClassicsToday review (by Victor Carr Jr.)

I enjoyed that Naxos/Fry release - the coupling of Santa Claus Symphony is fun too.  The Niagara Symphony is only around a quarter hour so I don't know if the coupling is considerably more substantial.  The Naxos release features the RSNO in fine form so Botstein's student orchestra have quite a high bar to beat in playing terms......

  That is worth keeping an eye on.  One of the few conductors George Szell spoke very highly of. I have some of his Haydn, and it's marvelous.
It's all good...

I have some of the Brahms on Philips duo releases. Magnificent.

I also like the look of that ICA DSCH CD as it features my two favourite symphonies (4 and 11) but as I've just ordered the new Kabelac 'Mystery of Time' CD and one of the early Martinu Orchestral music CDs on Toccata I'm resisting temptation for now.

Just looking at the picture suggests jewel cases.

The individual CDs as originally issued in a cardboard sleeve.
Naxos's Villa Lobos symphony cycle is the same way, btw.

True enow. I guess I was hoping against that image.

Knew that about the V-L symphonies (I should get back to those)

Thanks, gents!

Finally!!



Clementi Plays Scarlatti!



I shall repeat the following to myself: I don't need more non-operatic Rossini.



I guess I can sample to see if Caetani can accompany as well as his father.

Caetani's Shostakovich cycle is highly regarded.

I have a copy; the company were good to deal with. The recital is as interesting as his Arbiter Chopin disc I'd say -- I mean, if you enjoyed his Chopin, get this.)
