Here are this week's special deals from DG & Decca:

Tchaikovsky: Symphony No 6; Schoenberg / Barenboim, West-Eastern Divan
A dazzling performance of Schoenberg's Variations, triggering excitement, wistfulness, and romantic yearning. In Tchaikovsky's Sixth, Barenboim inspires the orchestra to play magnificently, movingly, and with palpable Tchaikovskian feeling throughout.

Pride of the Nation / Coldstream Guards Band
A staunchly patriotic release, from Britain's oldest serving military band, of traditional hymns, stirring anthems, and themes that unashamedly celebrate what it's like to be British. This consistently uplifting and cleverly arranged collection of British classical favorites should appeal to any fan of patriotic military music.

Beethoven: Violin Concerto / Mutter, Karajan, Berlin Po
An elegant reading of a magnificent piece of music.

Debussy: Favorite Piano Works / Tamás Vásáry
Vásáry’s playful brand of nervous energy in the Suite Bergamasque and the Tarantelle styrene, his wonderfully rakish Arabesques, a Pour le Piano highlighted by effervescent outer movements, and soft, murmuring repeated notes in Masques are among the delights here.

The Segovia Collection Vol 3 - Albéniz, Granados, Sanz, Sor
Music from Spain and Italy performed by the 20th century's supreme master of the classical guitar.

Summer Night Concert Schoenbrunn 2011 / Gergiev, Vienna Philharmonic
This CD affords the listener a chance to hear one of the world’s leading conductors paired with one of its leading orchestras in a varied program of (mostly) perennial favorites, all performed to these ears with utmost musical sensitivity and style.

Care-Charming Sleep / Potter, Dowland Project
A ClassicsToday 10/10! These re-imaginings of ancient original works, derived from the natural progression of musical ideas and customs that evolved in the centuries since they were composed, include songs gorgeously sung by John Potter and instrumental pieces. A fascinating program in demonstration-quality sound.

Maria / Cecilia Bartoli
A Gramophone Editor's Choice! Bartoli is back, in a brilliant summation of her art. Commitment, adventure, thrilling voice: that's Maria Malibran, and glorious Bartoli, too.
