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 July 2018
Number of items in this month's catalogue: 3
NOTE:The Skulte symphonies I offered in May (05T004) are out of print and the Latvians are not going to remanufacture. Turns out I got the last 15 they had...
NOTE 2:Each of the last three months I have not been shipped several titles. This month there are only two (there were seven in June!) and I have noted them this time.
