Quote from: Antoine Marchand on April 25, 2010, 05:39:21 AMDifficultly I can think a more appropriate label to be posted here than the Spanish Cantus Records. Going to "Catalogue"/"Audio" you can check out a lot of samples of their releases (basically Early and even Medieval Music).

In 1997, Mr. Marston was nominated for the "Best Historical Album" Grammy Award for his production work on BMG's Fritz Kreisler collection. According to the Chicago Tribune, Marston's name is "synonymous with tender loving care to collectors of historical CDs." Opera News calls his work "revelatory," and Fanfare deems him "miraculous." In 1996, Mr. Marston received the Gramophone award for "Historical Vocal Record of the Year," honoring his production and engineering work on Romophone's complete recordings of Lucrezia Bori. He also served as as re-recording engineer for the Franklin Mint's Arturo Toscanini issue and BMG's Sergei Rachmaninov recordings, both winners of the "Best Historical Album" Grammy. Born blind in 1952, Mr. Marston has amassed tens of thousands of opera classical records over the past four decades. Following a stint in radio while a student at Williams College, he became well-known as a reissue producer in 1979, when he restored the earliest known stereo recording, made by the Bell Telephone Laboratories in 1932. In the past, Mr. Marston has produced records for BMG, EMI, CBS, Biddulph, and Romophone. Now, he is bringing his distinctive sonic vision to bear on works released by his own label. Ultimately, his goal is to make the music he remasters sound "as natural as possible" and "true to life" by "lifting the voices" off his old 78s. Superior liner notes and performances are also part of the plan for Marston, which aims to "promote the importance of preserving old recordings" and make available the works of "great musicians who need to be heard."

Quote from: jlaurson on April 27, 2010, 01:47:29 AM Their Weinberg solo viola sonatas disc is fantastic.
Quote from: erato on April 26, 2010, 11:44:34 PMBut not easy to find a distributor that actually sells these discs. I did a search for some of the titles on some of the usual suspects in countries where the discs are distributed according to the website (no UK distribution BTW); but drew a blank. Let's hope their own webshop soon will be up and running.
Quote from: Il Furioso on April 27, 2010, 02:05:47 AMYes, I've been in contact with Jose about getting discs in the UK and he offered to ship some to me but postage was really high. Last I heard he was migrating from his usual host in Nov 2009 but still no webshop.
Quote from: erato on April 27, 2010, 01:58:36 AMThanks for the hint. I'm into Weinberg, but haven't seen that disc reviewed. A short notice in the Weinberg thread perhaps will alert more people to this?
Quote from: jlaurson on April 27, 2010, 03:12:00 AM1.) Where is the Weinberg thread?2.) Reviewed & raved about (by the Dubster) in the last (or maybe next) Fanfare Mag.3.)
