Terrific! Flames licking at the guitar! ”

— BBC Radio 3 presenter, Sara Mohr-Pietsch, about Hartzell's performance of Fuoco by Dyens on In Tune

Promises Kept

My next CG recording will be my own composition, music from friends/family that I have promised to record for many years, & by composers from the U.S. & England. Please help me make that possible. I am giving a pre-recorded concert via YouTube in December, so I hope you can donate to help support this project.
