Frank Peter Zimmermann Plays Mozart & Bach (DVD)
Frank Peter Zimmermann
German violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann performs Mozart’s Violin Concertos Nos. 3 and 5 A major with the Berliner Philharmoniker under the baton of Bernard Haitink; and he plays Johann Sebastian Bach’s violin sonatas with pianist Enrico Pace. "It is by far the greatest [joy] to play this music, to work with this music, to stride through this music over and over again," Zimmermann said. "It is so ingenious and powerful."

Daisy Jopling
New York-based English violinist Daisy Jopling, whose music education program The String Pulse Experience is revving up kids on the U.S. East coast, presents her first recording of original compositions, grounded in her love for spirituals, pop, reggae, funk, Irish folk, gypsy tunes, classical, Argentine tango and more.

If you have a new recording you would like us to consider for inclusion in our Thursday "For the Record" feature, please e-mail Editor Laurie Niles. Be sure to include the name of your album, a link to it and a short description of what it includes.
