Dear ArkivMusic Customer,

Here are a few of the many terrific titles you will find at 5 for $20:*

Franck: Symphony in D Minor / Plasson
The Symphony receives a rattling good performance, superbly cohesive, with lift, lilt, and zest. In the Symphonic Variations, Jean-Philippe Collard seems to have Franck’s doubt-vs.-faith scenario much at heart, soaring at last on ecstatically lyrical wings.

Favorite Waltzes / Boskovsky, Kempe, Kurtz, Previn
Not just a Viennese affair, this delightful collection includes Tchaikovsky, Gounod, and Khachaturian with its Strauss and Lehár.

French Songs & Arias / Kiri Te Kanawa
The glorious voice of Kiri Te Kanawa in a charming program of music by Duparc, Ravel, Charpentier, Debussy, and Berlioz.

Mendelssohn: Symphony No 2 / Sawallisch, Berlin Philharmonic
Written to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the invention of printing, Mendelssohn's symphonic “Song of Praise” gets an exciting reading by Sawallisch, and his excitement is contagious. Sawallisch and friends keep it appropriately joyful.

Zemlinsky: Lyric Symphony, Preludes / Conlon
An extremely valuable and rewarding disc, with Zemlinsky’s blockbuster Lyric Symphony paired with several of his opera overtures, which blossom here as never before.

Dvorak: Cello Concerto; Brahms: Double Concerto / Tortelier, Menuhin
A memorable recording of the Dvorák Cello Concerto by one of the twentieth century's greatest, if less heralded, cellists.

Beethoven: Piano Sonata No 13, 14 & 23 / André Watts
Everything comes together for Watts in the “Appassionata,” where his cogent musicianship and high craft consistently manifest themselves. EMI’s recording superbly reproduces Watts’s well-regulated Yamaha grand.

Bach: Motets / Eric Ericson Chamber Choir
A fine recording of Bach's six canonical motets.

R. Strauss: Alpensinfonie Op 64; Bruckner: Te Deum / Welser-möst, Eaglen, Remmert, London Po, Et Al

Prokofiev: Romeo And Juliet Suites 1 & 2 / Jansons, Oslo Po
