Classical Roundup, September 2011

by Nate Cavalieri  |  September 28, 2011


Classical artists don't typically rocket to the stardom in the manner of Aleksandra Kurzak, a Polish soprano whose startling talent made jaws drop when she debuted in London as Rosina in Rossini's Barber of Seville. Her sparkling solo debut leads off our early-fall Classical Roundup, in which she's joined by several other remarkable women, from a retrospective honoring violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter to Lara Downes' modern update on Bach's Goldberg Variations. Early September's other notable releases include a heart-wrenching Steve Reich/Kronos Quartet collaboration inspired by the September 11 tragedy and James Ehnes' expertly performed collection of three Bartok string concertos.
