To ease the world back into working mode, Slipped Disc presents the last pair of free tracks in the present series – a run that has attracted listeners from most corners of all five continents.
To end, here is a star pairing from the two founding indie labels, Onyx and Orchid.
By popular demand to hear more James Ehnes playing Mendelssohn, here he is again – not in the concerto but with a pack of pals attacking the presto of the Octet, possibly the most perfect piece old Felix ever wrote. Click here
The other seven players are Erin Keefe, Andrew Wan, Augustin Hadelich, Cynthia Phelps, Richard O’Neill, Robert deMaine and Edward Arron.
From Orchid, we present a forthcoming release from Orchid, never yet heard on public airwaves. It’s the British pianist Martin Roscoe playing Dr Gradus ad Parnassum from Debussy’s Children’s Corner. Click here
And that’s all, folks, for the moment. We’re assessing the free download numbers to see what implications they might have for the industry and I’ll report results when ready.
Meantime, do post below if you had a particular favourite track, or one you loathed.
All good things come to those who listen.
