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

The piano quartets, opp. 25, 26 & 60 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Sound Recording )
5 editions published between 1991 and 2000 in No Linguistic Content and English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
This is a wonderful recording of two indispensable masterpieces. By adding the viola, which he loved to play, to the popular piano trio, Mozart became "the father of the piano quartet" with these very different works, the first somber and dramatic, though it ends with a sprightly finale, the second lyrical and serene. Mozart treats all the instruments as equals, but primarily alternates piano and strings, bringing them together in climactic moments. This means that the musicians must inwardly participate in the music-making during long rests to create continuity and seamless give-and-take, a subtle problem these performers solve admirably. These four superb soloists have a rapport so strong that thoughts and feelings seem to flow between them in an unbroken current. Their playing is technically impeccable; their phrasing and style are unanimous, elegant, and flexible; their tone, though each player has a different one, is beautiful and expressive; the piano sings ravishingly; Ax adds discreet, improvisatory embellishments, especially in repeats. They bring out all of Mozart's mercurial moods, the light and shadow, repose and passion, joy and sorrow. --Edith Eisler

5 editions published between 1989 and 1998 in No Linguistic Content and held by 5 libraries worldwide
The much-anticipated album from the brilliant young American cellist. Alisa Weilerstein is the first cellist for many years to play the Elgar Concerto with Daniel Barenboim, and his decision to record it with her is a major statement

Stabat Mater by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi( Sound Recording )
3 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in Latin and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Opening the disc is Vivaldi's brief Sonata al Santo Sepolcro, an instrumental work probably intended for inclusion in an Easter church service. This is followed by a Stabat Mater proper, also by Vivaldi. Vivaldi used just the first ten verses of the text, creating one of the most sombre of all settings, here performed by the Canadian ensemble Theatre of Early Music and its director, counter-tenor Daniel Taylor, who in Bach is joined by Emma Kirkby, taking on the soprano part

Un jour, Pierre part explorer la forêt. Mais son grand-père le lui a interdit ... Car dans la forêt vit le loup! Avec ses amis le chat et l'oiseau, arrivera-t-il à l'attraper? 'Pierre et le loup' est un conte musical qui connaît un immense succès depuis sa création en 1936. Les instruments à cordes jouent un très beau thème qui représente Pierre, tandis que la flûte représente l'oiseau, le hautbois le canard, le basson grognon le grand-père, la souple clarinette le chat et enfin les cors le loup. Tout est bien qui finit bien dans une marche triomphale scandée par les timbales
