Dear ArkivMusic Customer,

Looking for a deal on acclaimed recordings of popular works by Beethoven, Brahms, Dvorák, and Mahler? Interested in exploring less-known composers like Warlock, Schulhoff, Rosetti, and Rott? You've come to the right place!

For two weeks only, ArkivMusic has everything from Sony's Arte Nova label on sale at $5.99 each or 4 for $20.* These recordings are some of the best-kept secrets in classical music, with many best-in-class and one-of-a-kind offerings.

Here are a dozen prime picks from Arte Nova to get you started:


Beethoven: String Quartets No 6 & 12 / Henschel Quartet
I was quite bowled over by these young players. The Henschels’ playing of the first movement is positively radiant, brimming with joyful song.

Prokofiev: String Quartets, Quintet... / Russian SQ
A disc unlike any you've heard or imagined. Every note is made to tell, in a musical canvas so bold that every gesture feels fraught with risk. The supplementary material offers almost as many treasures as the quartets.
$6.49

Beethoven: Triple Concerto, Septet / Shaham, Bronfman, Zinman
A ClassicsToday 10/10! Three virtuoso soloists with rhythmic élan, beautiful tone, and radar-like ensemble sensitivity come up with the best-integrated, most consistently characterized and caringly detailed Beethoven Triple Concerto ever committed to disc.
$6.49

Franck, Faure: Works for Cello & Piano / Klein, Melinte
You may quite well call Franck and Fauré the founders of French chamber music. Lovely pieces, performed by two marvelous artists.
$6.49

Dvorak: Symphonic Poems / Neumann, Weller
Neumann leads with his customary skill in The Water Goblin and The Wood Dove, showing these works in a different and interesting light. Weller’s exciting assault on The Noonday Witch is a swiftly visceral, take-no-prisoners account of this masterful score.
$6.49

Rosetti: Horn Concertos / Radek Baborak
Terrific music that is very much worth hearing. In fact, everything – music, performances, sound – about this disc is compelling. If you like Mozart and Haydn, there’s no doubt you’ll quickly warm to Rosetti.
$6.49

Mendelssohn: Symphonies 1 & 4, Hebrides Overture
Pople captures the youthful zest of Symphony No. 1, and the Symphony No. 4 is sunny and full of life. His conducting finds an appropriate balance between the Classical and the Romantic. In a dozen plays, this album has not worn out its welcome.
$6.49

Schumann: The Violin Sonatas / Alban Beikircher
If you don’t have these works, it’s tough not to suggest this as a first choice, even with the felicities of the other recordings available.
$6.49

Beethoven: Violin Concerto, Romances / Tetzlaff
A ClassicsToday 10/10! Great sonics make this a version that, like Zinman's recording of the Triple Concerto, really will make you listen to the music with fresh ears.
$6.49

Piano Concertos of the 1920s / Rische, Poppen
This disc offers not only spectacular performances of some great and uncommon repertoire, but also gives a clear look at an important and unruly decade in our musical history.
$6.49
