Daniel Wohl's "Corps Exquis" (French for "Exquisite Body") is our Album of the Week. Just released on New Amsterdam records, the album features performances by TRANSIT, So Percussion, Aaron Roche and Julia Holter intricately layered with electronic processing and samples. Stream it here!
Three lush concertos are performed beautifully by the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra on their recent release, "Vagn Holmboe—Concertos." Holmboe's Concerto for Violin no. 2, featuring violinist Erik Heide, Concerto for Viola with violist Lars Anders and the Concerto for Orchestra all receive their world premiere recordings on this disc.
The Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra under conductor Antoni Wit performs two concertos by Krzysztof Penderecki on a new disc from Naxos. The kaleidoscopic Concerto for Flute and Chamber Orchestra receives an excellent performance from flutist Lukasz Dlugosz, and a revised version of Penderecki’s Piano Concerto "Resurrection" features soloist Barry Douglas.
