The Tchaikovsky and Mendelssohn concertos both have played a significant role in Ray Chen's career. His superb performance of the works led to his triumph at two major violin competitions: the 2008 Yehudi Menuhin Competition and first prize in the prestigious Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels a year later. Chen brings a fresh interpretation to the cornerstones of violin repertoire and finds a kindred spirit in conductor Daniel Harding and the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra

Anna Vinnitskaya has now joined Alpha Classics. Her first recording for the label is devoted to one of her repertories of choice: the concertos of Shostakovich.'When I performed the Second Piano Concerto for the first time at the age of eleven, his music seemed very optimistic to me. Only later did I understand everything else that is concealed behind the "façade" of Shostakovich's music.'[The Russian pianist reveals two facets of the composer's music on this disc by juxtaposing the First Piano Concerto in C minor op. 35, an 'insolent' composition with a kaleidoscope of atmospheres and stylistic registers (Russian Romanticism, American jazz, neoclassicism) that constantly surprise the listener, and the more traditional Concerto in F major, which radiates youthful high spirits.] A pupil of Sergey Ossipenko at the Serge Rachmaninoff Conservatory, then of the great Evgeni Koroliov at the Musikhochschule in Hamburg, Anna Vinnitskaya won the Leonard Bernstein Prize, but it was her First Prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels in 2007 that launched her career. For this recording, Anna Vinnitskaya is surrounded by partners of the front rank: the famous Kremerata Baltica, regarded as one of the most creative ensembles on today's musical scene, and the prestigious wind players of the Staatskapelle Dresden

Pelléas et Mélisande by Claude Debussy( Recording )

25 editions published between 1981 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Levine brilliantly leads Debussy's colorful score, illuminating the mysterious world in which the title characters are trapped. Jeannette Pilou is the elusive young Mélisande, discovered deep in a forest by Golaud (José van Dam in an incandescent performance), who marries her. But it is Golaud's younger half-brother, Pelléas (Dale Duesing), with whom she falls in love. The increasingly jealous Golaud warns Pelléas to keep away from his wife. When the lovers meet one last time before Pelléas's departure on a journey, Golaud kills him. Mélisande gives birth to a daughter and dies, leaving Golaud to wonder if she ever loved him. Jerome Hines co-stars as the old King Arkel, Golaud and Pelléas's grandfather.This performance is taken from the James Levine 40th anniversary CD box set
