CD Recommendations of the Month: Collin Rae


American Collin J. Rae is label manager for Dacapo at Naxos of America, and he is fervent abut experimental and brand new composed music as well as the good old electronic pioneers of the 20th century. For several years Collin has helped to present Dacapo's CD releases to American sales reps, dealers and a number of international digital providers.

When we asked him to recommend three Dacapo releases for this newsletter, he insisted on recommending twice as many...



Jørgen Plaetner: Electronic Music

"This title really caught me by surprise when I first heard it, his aggressive electronic sound pieces rival some of the best Japanese Noise form the 90's. He's like some kind of super noisy Subotnick! "

The Natural Word of Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen

Kronos plays Holmgreen

ARS NOVA Copenhagen; Kronos Quartet, Paul Hillier
"For Pelle I need to choose two titles for they are both ESSENTIAL listening for anyone interesting in what's going on in Classical Music around the world. The Natural World of Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen is like a dream, wonderful and even in its darkest moments it retains its natural beautiful and manages to remain somehow uplifting."

Kronos plays Holmgreen

Kronos Quartet, Paul Hillier
"The Kronos Plays Holmgreen release is one of the most interesting projects the Kronos has taken on in the past few years, Holmgreen's Chamber music sensibilities are both beautiful and profound."
