Music for the Underdogs of the Orchestra
Music for the Underdogs of the Orchestra cover
Newly released on CD!
Digitally remastered.
Just from the ‘tongue-in-cheek’ title, one can tell that this is a record with a sense of humor.  It is also a record of worthwhile music played by very accomplished musicians. 

Gunther Schuller has always felt that the underdogs were in fact beautiful and richly versatile instruments capable of a wide range of expression and virtuosity.

Now available on CD!

Qty: · CD Price: $12.00 ·

Also available for downloads on iTunes as well as Amazon, Rhapsody, eMusic and other digital sites.
