Free CDs

I have the following CDs available for review:

Philip Corner – Extreme Positions – The Barton Workshop

Stirling Newberry – Xaos and Capricorn -Two string quartets on each.  (Steve Hicken not eligible since he wrote the intro)

Terry Riley – In C – Ars Nova – First version with voices

Da Capo package (3 CDs) – Langgard, Pettersson, Romantic Trombone Concertos

Huang Ruo – Chamber Concerto Cyle – ICE

John Adams – Complete Piano Music

Recipients must accept (and review) a second CD of my choosing.

Serious inquiries only.

Jerry, I already have the Riley release and would be happy to review it. I have two Wolpe reviews from the discs you just sent me that I’ll get to hopefully later this week.

But I would definitely be interested in the Adams and Corner.

I got here first, yes? 8-)

I’ve never bitten on this before, but I’m guessing those Romantic trombone concertos could use a good home. I’ll take it.

I’m with David, whichever you don’t send him, the Reich, Adams or Corner, I’d be happy to review.

Hey jerry, I don’t know if you remember me from a while back. But I’d be happy to review the Ruo.

Since I certainly don’t need any more free CDs, I just paid Bridge Records $15 for their latest George Crumb release of orchestral song cycles with Ann Crumb.

I’m pretty anxious to hear the In C with voices, and have been meaning to ask about reviewing here for a while.

Hi Jerry- I could review the Adams and Riley discs, if you haven’t already assigned them to someone else.

Looks like I’m a little late for this, but just found it. Would love to review Philip Corner. Keep me on a list for future reviews!
