CapRadio: Sound Advice - Classical CD Picks

For this week's Sound Advice, CapRadio's Morning Classical Host Kevin Doherty selects four new releases to keep an ear out for, including works by John Adams recorded by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, a Bach concerto recorded by pianist Simone Dinnerstein, a Mozart sonata recorded by violinist Hilary Hahn and pianist Cory Smythe and an original by guitarist Frederic Hand.

Retrospective is a compendium of some of Hilary Hahn's highlight recordings. Her programming is as musical and creative as her violin playing. While most of this album is from older recordings there are a couple of new tracks including Mozart's Violin Sonata No. 27. Her playing on this track is lyrical and fluid. A side note: It's said that Mozart composed this sonata in a day.
