This week we have two new releases from eastern Europe and two from the eastern U.S. The Moscow Quartet plays one of Beethoven's most popular chamber works, the string quartet #10 called the "Harp" quartet. Then, Bulgarian pianist Hristo Kazakov plays selections from Claude Debussy's Images. The rarely heard Robert Schumann Violin Concerto comes to you in a new live performance by Elmar Olivera and Boca Raton's Atlantic Classical Orchestra, and the renowned Eastman Wind Ensemble celebrates 60 years with a new Stravinsky disc.
