The newest edition of the YPC CD family has been launched: Transient Glory II is available, being sold on cdbaby.com and receiving its first reviews from major magazines!
Here is the caption of the press release that was sent out:
YOUNG PEOPLE'S CHORUS OF NEW YORK CITY RELEASES
TRANSIENT GLORY II
A RECORDING OF 11 WORLD PREMIERES - ON JANUARY 8, 2008
WORKS BY DOMINICK ARGENTO, GEOFFREY BURGON, DAVID DEL TREDICI,
TOD MACHOVER, BRIGHT SHENG, JUDITH WEIR,
AND OTHERS ARE INCLUDED ON THIS VITAL RECORDS CD.
You can also download individual songs from itunes.com or purchase the whole CD from amazon.com and ypc.org. But, I rather you purchase it from cdbaby.com
I am happy to report that YPC will receive glowing reviews for the new TGII CD from "Fanfare" magazine, "BBC" magazine and many others. How do I know that the reviews are glowing? The magazine editors emailed me an advance copy and the reviews are great! I will post a link to the review once they are officially published.
But, we need personal reviews too. I am hoping that you would visit www.cdbaby.com, sign in and write up a review. It's free, fun and will help our CD sales. Or, better yet, you can purchase the CD and support the YPC.
When you visit cdbaby.com, you can hear a 2-minute clip of most of the commissioned pieces. Or, you can visit itunes.com and hear 30-second clips. Either way, tell us what you think.
You can also write about our first CD TRANSIENT GLORY which started this whole adventure in the classical music world. The first CD received so many raving reviews, it was incredible. You can visit our website, ypc.org/transientglory and read them all.
Again, I do hope you purchase the CD and write a review and tell your friends to do the same.
