Brandon, VT, August 27, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Brandon Music, the United States branch of the international Divine Art Recordings Group, launches a new series of Russian piano music recordings and is named the sole North American agent for Move Records of Australia.
Virtuoso British pianists, Anthony Goldstone and Murray McLachlan, popular artists on the British Divine Art Record Label, have signed to Divine Art USA (Brandon Music). The series begins with four discs by Goldstone – music respectively devoted to Arensky, Gliere, Lyapunov, and Rebikov. The McLachlan disc features music by Shostakovich, Kabalevsky, Myakovsky, Shchedrin, and Stevenson (while not Russian, Ronald Stevenson was closely allied with the Russian ethos and the piece on the CD is a fantasia based on the initials DSCH - for Dmitri SCHostakovich).
Brandon Music has also been named the sole agent for US point-of-sales for Australia’s Move Records, which specializes in classical, jazz, film and world/ethnic music. The Move series, from Australia’s longest established independent label, will also be featured on major web retailer – www.ArkivMusic.com.
“Brandon Music is in negotiation with a number of American musicians regarding possible recordings to build more American presence in Divine Art Recordings Group’s expanding catalog,” comments Stephen Sutton, CEO of both Brandon Music and the Divine Art Recordings Group.
The new Russian piano music series and music through Move Records are both available at the Divine Art CD Store at Brandon Music in Brandon, VT and online at www.brandonmusicvt.com.
