CD of the Week

Víkingur Ólafsson
Harrison Parrott

After completing his studies, Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson became a “student” of Bach and immersed himself in his music. “He was just the teacher I needed: the kind that teaches you to be your own teacher.” His stunning new recording of original and transcribed works by Bach is WCRB’s CD of the Week.

Antonio Pompa-Baldi
Centaur

Italian pianist Antonio Pompa-Baldi performs and teaches around the world. His latest CD, “Napoli,” is a touching tribute to the Italy he loves, and it's WCRB's CD of the Week.

Yo-Yo Ma
Jason Bell

Now at age 62, cellist Yo-Yo Ma says that he is reassessing all that he knows, including Bach’s six suites for solo cello. He just made his third and final recording of them – and it’s WCRB’s CD of the Week.

La Serenissima
Eric Richmond

At the age of twenty, Adrian Chandler created the baroque band “La Serenissima,” and they’ve been together ever since. Next year, this award-winning baroque ensemble will celebrate their 25th year together. Their new CD features a specialty of Vivaldi’s, the “double” concerto, and WCRB has chosen it as our CD of the Week.
