Welcome to Records International
For 28 years Records International has specialized in bringing unusual repertoire to collectors of classical music. We assume that you already have enough versions of the "standards" and know them well enough to be curious about what else was going on at the same time as such giants as Bach, Beethoven, Brahms and Tchaikovsky were creating their masterpieces.
What was going on then? Who else was composing in their shadows?
How about Heinichen, Myslivicek, Vorisek, Raff and Rubinstein?
Or Kuhnau, Kraus, Spohr, Fuchs and Gretchaninov?
Which composers of our century are worthy to stand alongside the masters of the classical world?
Each month we offer dozens of new titles, many world premiere recordings, others the only available CD versions, but all of them fascinating repertoire, demanding rediscovery.
Here's a website that we strongly suspect will be of interest to a lot of you -
Classical Lost and Found (CLOFO.com) and its CROCKS Newsletter tell you about new classical recordings of forgotten music by great composers and great music by forgotten composers. Exceptional sounding discs for the audiophile are also noted.
Notes for January 2017
Number of items in this month's catalogue: 0A very poor catalogue in quantity but not too bad in quality. Again, the lack of normal amounts of new release titles at the end of the year has hamstrung me this month. But February will be back to normal (as an example - 9 CPO releases to make up for none this month and last) so don't despair! I'll do all the despairing this month....
