    This 2-CD sets may just be a best value in Debussy piano collections, including all the most popular works at a bargain price in excellent performances and recordings. Other pianists such as Michelangeli and Gieseking are not usurped but Roge, a master of French repertoire, holds his own. Highly recommended.

    Fans of modern music looking for something new should give a listen to the Sonic Art Saxophone Quartet, which sounds like nothing else on the alt-classical landscape. The four members of this tight little outfit conjure an amazing range of tonalities and timbres, far beyond what one might consider possible on the saxophone. The unusual instrumentation proves particularly apt for adventurous composers like Philip Glass and Michael Nyman, who are featured on this disc. The group’s powerful yet supple sound perfectly evokes Nyman’s poignant lyricism and the nervous intensity of Glass’ passive-aggressive sonic structures. Intricate, beautiful and hypnotic, this music will take the listener on unexpected and joyous journeys.

    Sharon Isbin is one of the great classical guitarists on the planet. I've experienced her live in concert - and enjoy listening to her recordings. This is one of the newest ones, and very excellent - the tracing of roots of folk music from "the old country" to the "new world" - how and where those tunes developed and where they migrated to - and the reccognizable songs we are all familiar with. Lovely and haunting - joyful - all that music can and should be. And Overstock.com - always fabulous - you rock!

    Phillip Schroeder’s latest recording is aptly named, as it does have a pronounced dreamlike quality. Most will probably label this music ambient for its minimalist orientation, and while the five compositions are introspective and contemplative, they are also surprisingly complex and expansive. Schroeder, who plays piano and electric bass throughout, makes considerable use of digital delay to stretch notes and build lush, layered sound textures. He also applies the delay process to the supporting instrumentation of clarinet, euphonium, flute, vibraphone and harp. One is never conscious of the digital manipulation, however, as the music always sounds natural and unforced. The overall feeling is autumnal, pitched between haunting and uplifting. This is beautiful, emotionally satisfying music that will likely keep it near the top of your playlist.

    It's just what I was looking for to give my husband. He doesn't own this collection and the quality is superb
