Classical New Releases

Well, we don't have a classical new releases thread, so I created this to mention the new Shostakovich 4 from the LSO with Gianandrea Noseda. I was there for one of the concerts recorded here. The recording is vivid and visceral, and recalls the stunning concert. The earlier LSO Live recordings were a bit soft-grained to say the least, so I am mentioning this recording to alert anyone who tends to overlook this series that THINGS HAVE CHANGED.

Preorder at HMV Japan with a release date of April 20; available right now on Tidal. The Beethoven Quartet played from the 30's to the 70's, these recordings are from the late 60's and early 70's, and somehow they sound like a single musician playing all the instruments at the same time. For me this is the greatest Beethoven quartet cycle ever recorded, very happy it's finally available!

And the award for bad design goes to ...

BTW, where does one learn of new classical releases? IMO presto and arkiv don't do a very good job of presenting that info.

This thread in the Talk Classical forum stays on top of these things pretty well.

For anyone interested in downloads, 7digital offer this set in 24bit (that's a good thing right?) for about 15 bucks!! I normally prefer physical product but for that price have been enjoying it since it was released in early January.

Another very inexpensive download was the Noseda Shostakovich 4 (thanks David, for mentioning it above).

Speaking of download sites I've found out about many new releases there (even if I purchase a cd elsewhere). For example, Chandos offer product from other labels and are seemingly up to date with new releases. Not quite an all-in-one shop, but they do have the labels that I'm particularly interested in such as Alpha, Albany, Glossa, Naxos and so on. No harmonia mundi unfortunately and no majors such as DG (fortunately :P).

I also suscribe/visit the specific label/s that I'm interested in - harmonia mundi, Bridge Records, Eloquence Australia (archival releases only), etc. 

Problem with all these new releases is finding the time to listen!!

A couple that I've enjoyed recently are the Mozart Vol.2 (Faust/Melkinov) on harmonia and Miklos Spanyi - Vol.39 of the C.P.E. Bach solo keyboard music (BIS)
