Dear ArkivMusic Customer,
| If you are a long-time reader of our newsletters, you know that I am enthralled by the art of the piano. Few things capture the elegant beauty of classical music for me like the intricacies of Bach or the propulsive emotion of Beethoven emanating from a Steinway grand.
This week at ArkivMusic, I want to turn the spotlight once again toward this marvelous instrument and some equally marvelous displays of the pianist's art, starting with a brand-new box celebrating one of the greatest musicians the world has known.
Featuring seven previously unreleased recitals and the first-ever
DVD release of the famous TV concert Horowitz on Television, not seen since it last aired in 1968, this is a truly spectacular set honoring one of the giants of classical music.
Here are a few more CDs and boxed sets, both recent and classic recordings, that deserve a place in any piano collection:
Gary Graffman - The Complete RCA & Columbia Album Collection
The first-ever release of his complete recordings, American pianist Gary Graffman's Complete Album Collection is newly remastered from the original tapes and includes many performances available for the first time on CD. $59.99 (24 CDs)
As always, I thank you for your support and love of classical music.|
