Twisted Skyscape appeal

Twisted Skyscape
Twisted Skyscape is the name of a project being developed by conductor Shea Lolin, who plans to record a disc of contemporary music for woodwind ensemble. Lolin and the composer/producer Colin Hussey plan to record the disc with musicians from the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra in March 2014. 

It will be a rare outing of an entire disc of music devoted to the relatively rare woodwind ensemble (4 flutes, 2 oboes, 3 clarinets, bass clarinet, contrabass clarinet, 2 bassoons, contrabass bassoon, 2 alto saxophones, tenor saxophone and baritone saxophone), and they will be playing music by Philip Sparke (born 1951), Gary Carpenter (born 1951), Christopher Hussey (born 1974) and Adam Gorb (born 1958), all but one of the five works will be being recorded for the first time. The disc is being released on the Legni Classics label.

In order to make the project go ahead, they are appealing for funds via Indiegogo. Do visit their project page, where you can get a sample of the delights that the disc will offer.
