Dear ClassicsOnline customer,

Salvador Brotons writes contemporary classical music for the ages in our featured release this week. We also enjoyed the works for guitar and voice by Alec Roth, a lovely 40th Anniversary celebration from Andrew Parrott and the Taverner Consort performing L'Orfeo, and interesting compositions for the double bass from Sofia Gubaidulina. We hope you take a moment to sample these and all the fine new releases at ClassicsOnline.

Sincerely,
The ClassicsOnline Team
