Description: The breadth and quality of Dohnányi’s brand of late Romanticism was first revealed by this series of discs which came out over a nine-year period beginning in 1996; other labels have since dipped into this repertoire but nothing really compares to the Chandos sound and Bamert’s (and his soloists’) performances. 5 CDs. James Ehnes (violin), Howard Shelley (piano), Clifford Lantaff (harp), BBC Philharmonic; Matthias Bamert. Original 1996,1998, 1999, 2002 and 2004 Chandos releases.
