Congratulations to the Quartetto di Venezia on their new Decca 3 disc set of the complete Cherubini string quartets. These neglected works deserve much attention and study. Beethoven and Brahms were both correct in their esteem for this composer. And these performances are superb. It’s Decca 476 3604 – a long awaited contribution to the string quartet discography.

And congratulations to Charles Cacioppo for his second release this season. The CD is “Dialogues” on LP Recordings #2010 featuring the Italy-based duo Andrea Ceccomori flute, and Elitza Harbova, piano. Along with Chuck’s 2 pieces inspired by Sandor Woeres poems are works by Casella, Copland, Berio, Dorff, Gach, Gentile, Zaimov, Anzaghi, and Goleminov. For more information, visit
