Bach: The Art Of Fugue

Label Steinway & Sons strikes again!

Enjoy the classical single Bach: The Art Of Fugue, featuring leading Bach interpreter Andrew Rangell. The CD is groundbreaking as it is a completely new recording of the song.

The song was written around 1745-1750 in Leipzig, Germany. The recording was finished in December 2011. The release date of The Art Of Fogue was September 25 of this year.

Tchaikovsky: Symphonies 1-3

The album focuses on the earlier works of Tchaikovsky, written in Russia. Symphony no 3 in D major, Op. 29 "Polish" was first written in 1875. The musical package spans over two discs. The collection released under the Lso Live label on October 9 of this year.
