New Classical Reviews

Among January's unexpected — and enjoyable — classical finds were things like reconstructions of ancient Greek music, two of the symphonies of 20th century American composer Florence B. Price, and some rarely-heard orchestral works of Saint-Saëns. We also caught up with the last of the releases commemorating the 100th anniversary of Debussy's death, just as we began receiving the ones commemorating the 150th anniversary of the passing of Hector Berlioz.
