New Classical Tracks
There is a flood of new classical recordings this fall, and to help us sort through them, Julie Amacher joins Fred today (and for the next three Thursdays) with "New Classical Tracks," her CD reviews and recommendations. Today Julie's pick is the new trio recording by three renowned soloists playing together for the first time: violinist Vadim Repin, cellist Mischa Maisky, and pianist Lang Lang.
