News on recordings

Our milestone project with Naxos is now successfully 'in the can'. Some 180 minutes of music has been recorded in a period of 6 days in the Czech Republic and we have created the first ever full orchestral recording of a collection of music by Eduard Strauss to mark the centenary of his death in 2016. Also recorded was a further volume of music by Strauss family contemporaries. The whole team has done an extraordinary job, of which our Society should be proud. The CDs are likely to be released some time in 2017.
Please take a look at this You Tube video made during the penultimate recording session (note that this not the final edited version but a raw live 'take'):
