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 August 2016
Number of items in this month's catalogue: 9
NOTE:I still have no access to Hyperion or the Harmonia Mundi-distributed labels not dumped by the company’s new owners (the pop-music company PIAS). It’s been 4 months since PIAS moved distribution away from HM and to the Sony-owned company RED (which never distributed any classical music before) and 30 days since RED finally sent me a credit application. That’s 30 days and still no answer. I’m sure glad Dutton left the US market and that I’m buying directly from them now. Otherwise I’d be in real trouble, wouldn’t I?
