Arthur Rubinstein had performed Saint-Saens Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor, Op. 22 many times throughout his concert career; in fact, this was one of the pieces on the program of his first public concert given in 1900. The style in which he plays it is simply captivating. It's not a serious concerto in the German-school, but rather a light-hearted and somewhat amusing concerto. This is probably the most famous recording of the composition, and it's no wonder why. The Symphonic Variations of Cesar Franck are fantastic, full of energy, vitality and French-Romantic beauty.

Ben Harper's 2006 double album, containing both acoustic and electric discs, became his first American top 10 chart success and remains his most successful release, having been certified gold or platinum in at least five countries. Largely a self-produced solo affair, Harper did invite in a long list of special guests to lend their talents to specific songs, among them blues legend Charlie Musselwhite, guitarist David Lindley, multiple Grammy nominee Greg Kurstin and Marc Ford, former lead guitarist with the Black Crowes.

For his second ECM album, award-winning pianist Aaron Parks assembled a trio featuring bassist Ben Street and drummer Billy Hart. The rhythm pair, which also teams in Hart’s hit quartet for ECM, blends fluidity and strength, what Parks calls "an oceanic" quality, producing waves of energy for the pianist to alternately ride and dive into. Find The Way has the aura of a classic piano trio recording, from the melodic opener Adrift to the closing title track, a cover of a romantic tune Parks grew to love on an LP by Rosemary Clooney and Nelson Riddle. Placing a priority on space and subtlety, Parks also drew inspiration from the likes of Alice Coltrane and Shirley Horn, for whom Hart played.

A new disc from Pierre Hantaï is always an event. This recording based around Johann Sebastian Bach, gives pride of place to the Italian Concerto, and makes us rediscover the masterpieces of the cantor of Leipzig in a unique interpretation from the star French harpsichordist. A must have addition to his discography which includes a number of recordings for Mirare: Bach s Well-Tempered Clavier (Book I), Goldberg Variations, and flute sonatas (with Hugo Reyne); three discs of sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti; a programme of works by François Couperin; and most recently a recording of music for two harpsichords by Rameau (with Skip Sempé).
