grateful
Thank you all who've congratulated us on our Grammy nomination for FUN HOME in the category of Best Musical Theater Album. The Grammy nominations are always so wildly unpredictable, and we had no idea which -- if any -- of our 2015 releases might receive a nod. FUN HOME was among our most rewarding albums ever, so it's extremely gratifying that the Recording Academy chose to recognize it. Congratulations, too, to our nominated colleagues at other labels: Rob Fisher and Scott Lehrer at Masterworks Broadway, for An American in Paris; Alex Lacamoire, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Bill Sherman, Ahmir Thompson and Tarik Trotter at Atlantic, for Hamilton; David Caddick, David Lai and Ted Sperling, at Universal Music Classics, for The King & I; and Kurt Deutsch, Karey Kirkpatrick, Wayne Kirkpatrick, Lawrence Manchester, Kevin McCollum and Phil Reno at Ghostlight for Something Rotten! We're honored to be in such good company.

Our ON THE TOWN cast recording was featured in The New York Times' Holiday Gift Guide. "For Bernstein-lovers, here is an essentially complete On the Town, with all the songs, dance sequences and orchestral underwriting included. Bernstein wove whiffs of bitonality and hints of Copland into this ambitious score, along with those wonderful songs," raved Anthony Tommasini. "For this essential cast recording, the conductor James Moore draws stylish playing from an excellent orchestra."

time and music
This past summer, we saw the Encores! Off-Center production of William Finn and James Lapine's A NEW BRAIN, starring Broadway, film and television star Jonathan Groff, along with Christian Borle, Ana Gasteyer and Aaron Lazar – all of them magnificent. New York magazine called the production a "miracle" and "revelatory," noting that Finn and Lapine's rewrites, as performed by this cast, at this particular time in history, made the show seem somehow more moving and invigorating than ever before – and we agreed. Jonathan Groff's lead performance was a one-of-a-kind mating of actor and role; as the New York Daily News raved, "Playing a composer determined to make his mark, the star leaves yet another one." It demanded to be seen – and if not seen, then heard. Today and tomorrow, we are recording the 95-minute, through-composed show in its entirety for the first time, and packaging it in a deluxe two-disc set. Pre-order your copy today...

Golden reviews
The internet and newsstands have been flooded with reviews for our deluxe two-disc cast recording of THE GOLDEN APPLE, which NPR hailed as "game-changing." Playbill proclaimed, "It bursts with energy like it never did before. How often are we treated to a cast recording that is layered with such complexity and fullness of sound from the orchestra while a legion of voices come together to create sparkling and heavenly harmonies? A breathtaking bijou among the most celebrated gems of cast recordings." The Stamford Times tagged it as "a must for anyone who cares about the musical theatre," while across the country, the critic for The Bay Area Reporter, admitting it was "a recording I've been waiting for all my life," cheered, "We can now hear it in its full, adventurous, and rather fantastic form." CastAlbums.org raved, "The album has the vibrancy of a live performance with studio-quality sound. The score offers delights for all kinds of show music fans. Most of us never expected to hear a full recording of this score with a cast and orchestra of this size and quality, and to have it delivered with such finesse is nothing short of a miracle" -- and Fanfare Magazine concurred: "It sports some of the best engineering I've heard from an opera - and wonder of wonders, it was recorded live. The greatest American opera ever written. Well done!" Order your copy today...
