BJÖRLING Cavalleria Rusticana & Pagliacci

This week we bring you two classic 'verismo' operas starring the legendary Swedish tenor, Jussi Björling. Recorded in New York in 1953 with a host of other Met Opera stars - including Zinka Milanov, Victoria de los Angeles, Robert Merrill and Leonard Warren - these are truly classic recordings.

The baton of Renato Cellini never fails to deliver in Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana and Leoncavallo's Pagliacci, and these new Ambient Stereo XR remasters have breathed new life into these fabulous studio performances.

We also celebrate the life of Sir Edward Elgar, who died 90 years ago this week, with a full 20% off all our recordings of his music - including those he conducted himself all those years ago.

GOOSSENS in Cincinnati, Volume 3

This week we complete our series of Goossens conducting the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra with a whirlwind tour of Europe. The disc begins in Norway with the first Peer Gynt Suite by Grieg. We then travel to France for Chabrier's Joyeuse Marche before heading east to Germany for a suite based on Richard Strauss's Der Rosenkavalier as arranged by the Hungarian composer and conductor Antal Doráti.

We complete our musical tour in Italy, on Valentine's Day 1946, with recordings made that day of Respighi's Fountains of Rome and Pines of Rome. As always Mark Obert-Thorn's transfer work is superlative. The first two volumes of this series were ecstatically reviewed - this final disc will surely receive similar acclaim.

We also celebrate the 128th birthday of conductor Dimitri Mitropoulos with a special 10% discount on all his recordings at Pristine all week.

FOU TS'ONG plays Chopin

This week at Pristine we bring you a set of brilliant, previously-unreleased performances of Chopin by Fou Ts'ong, recorded live in London and Dublin in the 1990s.

The disc begins with seven Mazurkas, the Berceuse, a tour-de-force in the 4th Ballade, and concludes with a superb set of the 24 Preludes. Once again superb source recordings have been digitally XR remastered by Andrew Rose for this highly anticipated release.

We also mark the 141st anniversary of the death of Wagner with a special 10% discount on all of his music at Pristine - a selection of over 100 releases.

What the reviewers say

FURTWÄNGLER Wagner Ring Cycle: 4. Götterdämmerung (1950, La Scala) - PACO093

Flagstad pours it on—the quality of her voice and her stamina are remarkable

Fanfare magazine

KLEMPERER in Philadelphia, Vol. 1: Bach, Beethoven, Brahms (1962) - PASC465

This “Eroica” is one of Klemperer’s great statements of the work

Fanfare magazine

LEINSDORF Wagner: Die Walküre (1940, Met) - PACO125

Probably the most significant recording to come along since the recent Wagner bicentennial

The Washington Post

TOSCANINI All-Verdi Concert (1943) - PACO106

Never have I heard the entire broadcast in such excellent sound ... one of the greatest of all Toscanini concerts
