    A bit of PR for those that are interested... ;)

    Released today is Steven Mead's 5th cd in the World of the Euphonium Series, has some fantastic repertoire on, and have ordered mine just now :D

    "As with the other albums in the series it features Steve with piano, but with a few surprises! Attached is the programme for the CD and it shows a huge range of music with a lot of new works too, receiving their first peformances and recordings. The addition of harp in the Ito quartet, with Steve playing all four euphonium parts, is sure to be of interest, as is the new Euphonium Concerto No.2 by Philip Sparke, the A La Suite Classique (Ito) and the brand new Dream Nocturne (Snell). In all, 79 minutes of great music and great playing, aided by the talented Japanese virtuoso piano Tomoko Sawano."

    It was due to be launched at the Open but there didn't seem to be any copies around, so I don't know whether there's been a last-minute hitch.

    I spoke to Stan Kitchen on Saturday and he told me that the problem was with the booklet printing company which had financially collapsed.
