Kimiko Ishizaka's "Goldberg Variations" are now on Bandcamp

on Thu, 12/18/2014 - 21:17

Bandcamp is a service that allows musicians to release albums for distribution. It's ideal for the Open Goldberg Variations (and for the upcoming Open Well-Tempered Clavier) recording because it supports the "pay what you want" model. This allows us to offer the files for gratis download, but fans can still decide to pay an amount of their choice to promote Kimiko's efforts to make more recordings and go on more tours. Some of Kimiko's fans are very generous! The other advantages of Bandcamp are the natural audience that they bring (people search the site to discover new music), the high quality of the transcoding and metadata, analytics, and a very nicely designed landing page for albums and artists. Color me impressed.

Download the libre "Open Goldberg Variations" for gratis, or a price of your choosing.


Danjulo Ishizaka's Janáček, Kodály, and Grieg solo recording is amazing

I dearly love this recording, and I'm not the only one. Grammophone, The Strad, and now The Arts Desk have showered praise on this recording. In fact, everybody who hears it is taken with it.
