The New Faces Of Classical Music
From the poetic playing of pianist Ingrid Fliter to the high notes (and high drama) of soprano Anna Netrebko, this group of talented musicians represents the next generation of emerging classical artists, most of whom are still in their 20s and 30s. These 2008 releases offer fresh takes on classic favorites, whether it's cellist Matt Haimovitz's string-trio rendition of Bach's Goldberg Variations or off-the-beaten-path discoveries, such as Rachel Barton Pine's performance of the Violin Concerto by Beethoven's contemporary, Franz Clement.
