Our resident photographer, Brandon Johnson, took these beautiful photos of our recording session at the St. Alexander Nevsky Diocesan Cathedral with the PaTRAM Institute Singers in Howell, NJ earlier this month. Enjoy!
The Santa Fe Opera released a new recording in June of the world premiere production of Mason Bates: “The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs.” This is the second recording in a series of American opera commissions released on Pentatone. The production team for both recordings (Cold Mountain and RSJ) was Elizabeth Ostrow, Mark Donahue, and Dirk Sobotka.
Congrats to Herschel Garfein on his Billboard Chart success for “Mortality Mansions”! Blanton did the engineering on this gem.

From Audiophile Audition:
“The 5.0 recording is stunning, letting the listener absorb this little known work in a live acoustic space and with the fine South Dakota Chorale conducted by Bryan Schmidt. Organist Christopher Jacobson sounds flawless here and this recording is certainly one our audiophile readers will enjoy.
Marcel Tyberg’s story is a sad one, and we are lucky to have had his legacy saved by admirers. For decades his name and music have been in undeserved limbo. Kudos to Pentatone for getting engaged in this project and capturing a fine performance in pristine sonics.” – Mel Martin
