Most celebrated for his alternating touching and dynamic orchestral film scoring with Studio Ghibli animation director Hayao Miyazaki, Joe Hisaishi is a prolific Japanese composer of classical works, film scores, and experimental electronic and animation music. Born Mamoru Fujisawa in Nakano, Japan, Hisaishi began studying the violin at age five and went on to major in music composition at the Kunitachi College of Music. He released his first album in 1981. Titled Mkwaju, it was written for percussion ensemble with keyboard and computer programming. That was followed in 1982 by Information, credited to himself and his oft-used pseudonym for collaborators, Wonder City Orchestra. 1983 marked his first film score and first collaboration with Miyazaki, on 1984's Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. With moments of sentimental strings and percussive fanfare, its range marks the dramatic emotional content of his scores to come.

This entry in mail-order firm Collectors' Choice Music's series of reissues of Nat King Cole albums pairs two instrumental collections he recorded in the 1950s. In its original form as a 10," eight-song LP, Penthouse Serenade, recorded on July 18, 1952, found Cole returning to the small-band format of his jazz playing days in an ensemble that featured him on piano, John Collins on guitar, Charles Harris on bass, and Bunny Shawker on drums (with Jack Costanzo joining in on bongos and conga on "Rose Room," "Once in a Blue Moon," and "Down by the Old Mill Stream"). Three years later, on July 14, 1955, Cole re-entered the studio to cut another four songs…

Chopin's two piano concertos have long been admired more as pianistic vehicles than as integrated works for piano and orchestra. But in his revelatory new recording, Krystian Zimerman suggests otherwise: The opening orchestral tuttis have so much more light, shade, orchestral color, and detail, you wonder if they've been rewritten. Every gesture, every instrumental solo is so specifically characterized that by the time the piano makes a dramatic entrance, the pieces have become operas without words.
