"Richter Rediscovered" Franz Joseph Haydn Our price: $29.42 | You save: $1.55
...available here.
It has been said before, but Russian pianist Sviatoslav Richter was a true enigma. His playing--full of turbulent intensity, gorgeous poetry, and sublime introspection--is legendary; and on "Richter Rediscovered," a newly issued document of his entire 1960 Carnegie Hall recital, we get to hear him in all of his glory.

"The Ligeti Project 1: Melodien, Chamber Concerto, Piano Concerto, Mysteries of the Macabre" Gyorgy Ligeti Our price: $15.49 | You save: $1.48
...available here.
Teldec's first volume of their "Ligeti Project" picks up where Sony's "Ligeti Edition" left off, giving us even more wonderful, thought-provoking works from living legend Gyorgy Ligeti. The composer's piano concerto, featuring Pierre-Laurent Aimard, is a highlight, but each of these works feature detailed, virtuosic playing and Ligeti's unpredictable swirling, crazed textures. A New Music classic.

"Hadyn: Complete String Quartets [BOX SET]" Franz Joseph Haydn Our price: $127.77 | You save: $14.20
...available here.
Here's a massive set that's sure to please chamber music fans: the Angeles Quartet deliver Haydn's Complete String Quartets, 67 masterpieces on 21 discs. The performances are some of the best, the price is right, and the sonics are warm and detailed.

"Vivaldi: The Late Violin Concertos" Antonio Vivaldi Our price: $16.49 | You save: $1.48
...available here.
Andrea Marcon and the Venice Baroque Orchestra seemingly have Vivaldi in their blood. On this disc featuring the world premieres of the composer's Late Violin Concertos, they deliver an exciting period-instrument performance full of breathtaking virtuosity and musical surprises.

"Pletnev Live at Carnegie Hall" Johann Sebastian Bach Our price: $16.49 | You save: $1.48
...available here.
For whatever reason, 2001 was a good year for recordings featuring Russian pianists live at Carnegie Hall. Mikhail Pletnev delivered a riveting recital full of eclectic works, from a Bach-Busoni violin chaconne to Mily Balakirev's devilishly difficult "Islamey."
