Recent Classical Highlights for March 2023






Each month here we try to point you to new releases that cover new music — such as orchestral works by Missy Mazzoli — or rarely heard or re-discovered music — like the guitar works of Justin Holland, but there are always the warhorses of classical repertoire that deserve a little love also. Revered conductor Riccardo Chailly (pictured) chose some well-known choruses from Verdi’s operas. Beethoven’s complex late string quartets were recently recorded by the Calidore String Quartet. Enrico Dindo played Dvorák’s lyrical solos in an album of music for cello and orchestra. The old standbys still have life in them.
