This recording, originally a live, unedited, direct-to-disc concert performance, is a dramatically beautiful piano recording, engineered by the late Doug Sax (1936-2015). Sax was known for his minimalist, classical approach to recording, with the emphasis on critical microphone placement in a fine acoustical environment.

Parnas Double  SL10082 Parnas Double
Madalyn Parnas, violin
Cicely Parnas, cello
This debut recording for the Parnas Duo, Madalyn Parnas, violin and Cicely Parnas, cello, features well-known and well-loved staples of the 20th Century and a few delightful discoveries. Duos by Kodaly and Ravel, the giants of this sparse repertoire, are obviously included. But you may consider adding the Tcherepnin Duo written in 1932 to this short list after hearing this enchanting and often beautifully lyrical piece with its driving folk dance rhythms and energy. The romantic Handel-Halvorsen Passacaglia and a truly charismatic string duet by Jonah Thomas composed before and after the 20th century respectively, complete the listening adventure.

Newman and Oltman Guitar Duo
A fresh and brilliant recording of a cornerstone of romantic piano literature, the Twenty-four Preludes of Frederic Chopin. These compositions explore the full range of the composer's musical and emotional palette, inspiring Franz Liszt to call them "poetic preludes, like those of a great contemporary poet." The preludes are supplemented by Brahms' last opus for piano and three pieces by Prokofiev: a waltz from his opera "War and Peace" and the contradance and waltz from the motion picture, "Lermontov."
