Violin concertos by Johann Sebastian Bach( )

86 editions published between 1934 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Piano concertos by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

67 editions published between 1979 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

The German conductor Hermann Scherchen (1891-1966) recorded Handel's Messiah twice: his first recording, which is presented (by the way, it was the first uncut release of the work), was made with an English case in September 1953, a second version in stereo was recorded in Vienna during April 1959 with an international cast including Pierrette Alarie, Nan Merriman, Leopold Simoneau and again Richard Standen. The earlier recording is generally regarded as the finer one. Scherchen's unpretentious and transparent sound together with an often unusual choice of tempos was a sensation at the time the recording was released and still convincing today
