DCD 018 - A Classical Potpourri

This program we begin a special feature. For the next several podcasts, we'll be presenting music from the New York Latvian Concert Choir label. In my opinion, the NYLCC label is one of the most under appreciated that we carry. We're hoping our series will help change that.

In addition to the first installment of the NYLCC series, we also present a selection from Troubadisc's latest offering -- a Schumann recital disc with pianist Wolfram Lorenzen.

You'll also hear the final movement to a chamber symphony by American composer Henri Lazarof, and a baroque suite for lute duet recorded in a very unusual manner by John Schneiderman on VGo recordings.
