Quote from: traverso on April 28, 2009, 08:13:05 PMIt looks like someone has decided to take over the label. New website: www.arcana.eu
Quote from: Que on April 28, 2009, 10:46:25 PMI need some more ARCANA issues and can't wait for their reappearance.
Quote from: traverso on April 29, 2009, 02:48:51 AMI personally think Bernstein did better work in his previous Astree-Auvidis period. But who doesn't need more new issues and reissues?
Quote from: Que on April 29, 2009, 10:21:00 AMWell, now you mention Astrée-Audivis: they have a notoriously bad track record on reissuing...
Quote from: traverso on April 29, 2009, 07:51:45 PMOf course because Astrée-Audivis is officially dead - their back catalogue was purchased by Naive, who seems rather naive about its reselling value...
Quote from: Brian on April 30, 2009, 08:20:11 AMNaxos have just released their June CD list, and I am somewhat amazed to see two odd transcriptions featured: Beethoven's Second Symphony arranged by the composer for piano trio, and Vivaldi's Four Seasons arranged for solo piano by the pianist (Jeffrey Biegel). I'm pretty sure the former will sound wonderful, but the latter is not a recording I look forward to.Unfortunately an error on their webpage prevents the full list from showing.

Quote from: admiralackbar74 on August 11, 2009, 11:48:56 AMI'm very much looking forward to reading reviews of Pollini's Bach WTC I.
Quote from: Brian on August 06, 2009, 08:44:02 AMIn October (?) pianist Alexandre Tharaud will release his first CD on Virgin, a Chopin recital. I'm also looking forward to the release of Simon Rattle's Brahms symphonies cycle, not because I want to hear it, but because I anticipate David Hurwitz' venomous "1 out of 10" review.Some September releases that could be awesome:
Quote from: Brian on August 14, 2009, 06:12:20 PMNaxos have just released some interesting news. They are in the process of recording a CD of rare and world-premiere piano pieces by the composition students of Frederic Chopin. The music is apparently not just carbon-copies of Mr. C: the composers include a Norwegian and a Romanian who brought their own folk dances to the salon, much as Chopin brought the mazurka. Full information here. Definitely a recording I anticipate quite a bit.
