Cleveland Chamber Symphony followup

I asked the music director of the Cleveland Chamber Symphony, Steven Smith, when his band's next CD will be coming out; he said he doesn't know and said there are no agreements in place now for the symphony to record anything.

I mentioned that I remembered that I recalled that the CCS had recorded Gerald Plain's recorder concerto last year; Smith said Plain had a grant to record it. "I imagine that will come out on a disk of his music," Smith said. (Does anyone have more information?)

Smith said the orchestra is still accepting $25 a measure donations to pay for the cost of Marta Ptaszynska's composition that premiered Sunday, "Lumen."

If you liked some of what you heard at Sunday's Cleveland Chamber Symphony at Baldwin-Wallace, here are some links that may be useful.

A search for "Monica Houghton" on Emusic.com turns up nothing; a search of Amazon for her turns up only a brief track on a collection of organ music. But her web site offers about an hour's worth of MP3 tracks.

Loris Chobanian offers only sound samples on his site; searches an Emusic and Amazon show that his works turn up on several albums.

Dennis Eberhard is represented on Emusic.com by an album that includes "Prometheus Wept," the piece played Sunday; Amazon has the same Naxos album featured on Emusic.

Amazon lists for Marta Ptaszynska albums; I can't find anything of hers on Emusic.

I know you like William DUckworth's music, so check this link for an interesting mention of him and a new cd from Boston.
