  • Halldor says:

    Makes sense. And it’s a considerably more credible label than DG or EMI these days.

    • Alexander Hall says:

      EMI no longer exists, unfortunately. It’s one more example of how American companies have bought up most of the greatest names in brand history (remember what happened to Cadbury’s and the promises that were made to its employees?). EMI is now part of the Warner empire.

  • Andrew R. Barnard says:

    I like very much that it’s a relatively unknown piece. Exactly the kind of thing we need more of, and exactly the kind of thing the mainstream labels aren’t quick to produce.

    • Petros LInardos says:

      Indeed. Not to mention that it is beautiful and very interesting. While there are some good recordings of it, there is definitely room for another good one.

    God, a dentist!
