Three new CD releases

There will be three new CDs being released in October under the baton of Kent Nagano. Beethoven’s Symphonies Nos. 2 & 4 “The Poetry of Freedom” will be published by Sony Classical as the last part of a recording of all the Symphonies by Beethoven with the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal under Kent Nagano.

A CD with Japanese Children Songs has been recorded by Analekta with Kent Nagano and the OSM. Kent Nagano was intrigued by those songs when he heard his daughter singing them. He comments: “They were at once both, intensely moving emotionally and disturbing. Their haunting, mysterious beauty has continued to entice all generations since their creation making them actual and vividly relevant to our modern world.”

The label Edel publishes a complete recording of all piano concertos by Beethoven together with the Triple concerto played by Mari Kodama (with Kolja Blacher, violin, and Johannes Moser, cello). Kent Nagano leads the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin
