What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

Szymanowski/Chausson/Saint-Saens / Nicola Benedetti & the London Symphony Orchestra
Elsewhere on this site I describe my first visit to Singapore, which I thought of as Asia For Dummies for the ease with which an unsophisticated American can get around. It's exotic without being challenging. That's the way I feel about Nicola Beneditti's first album. The performances are lovely, and they may even be challenging to the violinist who performs them. (What do I know? I can't play a videogame.) But there's no challenge here for the listener. This is classical music for people who think they won't like classical music. It's nice and all. But how about something soul-stirring? Something to stretch our taste, to make us go "wow"? Maybe next album. Szymanowski/Chausson/Saint-Saens
