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

Paganini - Spohr: Violin Concertos / Eije Oue, Hilary Hahn & Sveriges Radiokorkester
Paganini - Spohr: Violin Concertos I'd classify the two concerti (I hope that's the plural of concerto) on this album is accessible; heck, they'd almost have to be to keep my interest. I'm not that much of a classical enthusiast, pretty young virtuosos (virtuosi?) on the cover notwithstanding. So it helps if the music is energetic and fun and varied. Complexity for its own sake doesn't do it for me. Fortunately, the Paganini especially is both a torture test for the violinist and pure pleasure for the audience. And I especially enjoyed the few minutes of interviews with that violinist. It's a little glimpse behind the scenes, helped along by the fact that Ms. Hahn is as articulate as she is skilled. Now that's rare.
