48 Hours ’til Bobberdammerung

Hello everyone

Bobberdammerung approaches!

It’s less than forty-eight hours now until recording sessions begin for volume 4 of Bobby and Hans- the complete symphonies of Hans Gal and Robert Schumann. We’re all very excited that the day is nearly at hand. YOU made it happen!

Interest in the project continues to pick up. Performance Today, American Public Media’s national digest of live classical music, has just rebroadcast our performance of Schumann’s 2nd Symphony, recorded in December 2011 as part of the sessions for volume 2 in the series. They’ve also included a selection from our recording of Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde, sung by the incomparable tenor Brennen Guillory. You can listen to the program online until Thursday the 5th of December here.

Also in America, Listen Magazine has published a new essay on “The Case for Hans Gal.” It’s in the Winter 2013 issue- on newsstands now or subcribe online. You can get a sneak peak here.

Finally, this memorable graphic from Zoe was one of the iconic images of the campaign:

 

Well, thanks to your generosity and tenacity, we can now fill in the blank box with the cover for vol 4, which will be released in March:

We look forward to seeing many of you on Tuesday. Thank you so much for your support!
