CDs come in threes; SWR merger protest & petition

You can wait for years – for CDs, for buses – and suddenly they come in threes…

Angels CD cover

Hot off the presses is Marco Blaauw’s Angels on WERGO which follows the release of Tongue of the Invisible earlier this year on the same label. Both CDs have come in for praise from Alex Ross on his blog and in The New Yorker; Ross recently included Tongue of the Invisible as a case study in his keynote lecture for The Rest is Noise Festival at the London Southbank Centre. The CD of recent orchestral works has come out on the Swiss label Hat Art and includes performances by the Bavarian Radio Orchestra (conducted by Lothar Zagrosek & Christoph Poppen) as well as the SWR Sinfonieorchester (conducted by Rupert Huber with soloist Jeremias Schwarzer). The SWR Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg (SO) and the Radio-Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart des SWR (RSO) are fighting a massive battle against their fusion. Please see the online petition and consider joining the many music lovers, conductors, composers and musicians in their protest against this act of cultural vandalism.
