Russian Disc was one of the few Russian CD labels to continue producing quality recordings after the downfall of the Soviet Union, until legal difficulties forced its shutdown. But Delos retained exclusive rights to re-release their excellent recordings in our ongoing DRD series, featuring often seldom-heard Russian classical gems in idiomatically true and widely acclaimed performances by many of the nation’s top artists. And now, through August 1st, the online Delos Store is offering all of our nine DRD releases (thus far) for the special low price of $9.99 per disc, and on iTunes for $7.99!
Perhaps the heart of our DRD offerings thus far is the 5-CD series (sold individually) devoted to Dmitri Shostakovich’s vital and imaginative film music: recordings that were warmly welcomed by Shostakovich collectors and film music fans. Further Orchestral CDs include Kara Karayev’s delightful ballet scores, Anton Rubinstein’s mighty “Ocean” Symphony, and soon we have a pair of new releases: Rubinstein’s epic “Dramatic” Symphony and appealing orchestral suites by Dmitry Kabalevsky. Then there’s a winning survey of Russian Romances from legendary soprano Arax Davtian and a stunning collection of modern Russian piano classics delivered by Vladimir Yurigin-Klevke.
Here’s your chance to add these classic recordings to your collection at a deep discount – but don’t delay: sale ends on August 1st!
