DCD 008 - New releases -- and a new label

Things have been hopping here at DCD recently, significantly impacting our podcast schedule (as if you haven't noticed). The good news is that we now have even more music to share -- and we intend to do just that. Look for a stepped up podcast schedule beginning with this show. Thanks for your patience and support.

This program we introduce a new label -- Champignon International, the home of the early music group, the Fanfare Consort. In addition to sampling selections from the Consort's two albums, we also give you a first taste of some new releases.

VGo Recordings has a new release featuring Grisha, a young guitar virtuoso from Russia. In addition to that, we also debut a cut from "Violin Solo, Volume 2," on Troubadisc. Renate Eggebrecht performs on the first SACD from this fine German label.

Circulation has continue to grow for our podcast, and we couldn't be happier. If you have a moment, drop us a line. I'd love to know where you're listening, and what you like (or don't). Send your bouquets and brickbats to
