Frederick Delius
Recommended Recordings



"Music is an outburst of soul. "

Beecham Conducts Delius
( Royal Philharmonic Orchestra; Sir Thomas Beecham, conductor)
This legendary conductor's dedication to Delius is clearly represented on this recording.

Dvorak: Piano Quartet, Sonatina, etc
(Emanuel Ax and Robert McDonald, pianos; Isaac Stern, violin; Jaime Laredo, viola; Yo-Yo Ma, cello )
Recorded in 1996, this disc captures an all-star quartet performing one of Dvorák's best chamber pieces, the Piano Quartet No. 2. Emanuel Ax and Yo-Yo Ma steal the show on this brooding but beautiful work. On "Sonatina in G Major," Stern gets his time in the spotlight, performing the work in a highly stylized and sophisticated fashion along with pianist Robert McDonald.
