Hi everyone, I hope I can be forgiven for posting a little update!

Looks like a fortnight till release. :) and pre-release info is going out.

The CD is on the cover of the Divine Art newsletter (middle).

and, if you are in the US, and you see the Naxos catalogue, I'm in there on p38.

Very nice, Andrew!! :)

You should try sending one of your CD's to the classical radio station from Chicago that I listen to. It's 98.7 WFMT. Here is the link:

https://www.wfmt.com/

One of their weekly programs on Sunday mornings is all 'new releases'. They have a huge audience and also stream live on the Internet.

Thanks for that link. I'll see if I can find out to whom Divine Art will be circulating copies within the US - the one caveat I have is that I was warned by a professional contact that it's difficult for private individuals to attain reviews/airplay and in honesty I think it's also better manners to, having signed a contract, send a CD as the "official" release.

This must be very exciting indeed. The first step in what is hopefully a nice career.
Pity about the spelling mistake (Scotisch). Maybe they can still correct that ?

Yes, exciting - and very gratifying after the work that went into it.

The spelling mistake didn't go unnoticed on my part! I doubt it is fixable; I think the catalogue has already been distributed. It will be interesting to see what reviewers make of the CD - I've already had the two very positive reviews from MusicWeb International (of the original self-released CD) but I anticipate that this issue is more likely to get widespread reviews.
