All of the artwork has been completed and the CD has now been manufacturered and is making it’s way towards journalists and the press for their valuable feedback and opinion.
Below you can see the Fordante cover artwork. I decided to get a cariacature artist involved rather than having the usual pose of everyone in front of their musical instruments and I’m impressed with what Mikey Ball (TheArtyOne) has done. I wanted the cover to reflect a little of our style so I didn’t just want another posing photo of us all in front of the instruments – in fact you only have to look at most other classical CD to know what I mean! And after all, some of our music is intentionally a little less high-brow than more conventional classical music so I quite liked this lighter approach.
After several years writing the music it’s great to have Fordante’s debut CD finally in my hand and ready to roll.
