Help us finish up the production costs for the new David Gaines CD!

The new chamber music CD/digital download will be released in early 2010 on the Navona Records label (and distributed by Naxos). You'll finally get to hear:
  • ...and dispel the miseries of the world (2008) for baritone saxophone and chamber orchestra (written for and recorded by the Seattle baritone saxophone hero James DeJoie, with members of the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Kirk Trevor)
  • Suite Of Changes (1993) for viola and mallet percussion (featuring the amazing young Japanese marimba virtuoso Fumito Nunoya)
  • the delightful little Jubilee (2005) for euphonium and piano, featuring the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra's principal trombonist, Robert Kozanek, for whom I wrote my new trombone concerto (which we will hopefully record for Navona next year....more about that later).
However, we need a little bit of help to zero out the production costs, so we've started a $500 fundraising campaign with Click on the widget below to contribute via can use a credit card if you don't have a PayPal account. Any amount....$1, $5, $10, $100, or anything in welcome, and everyone who contributes $25 or more will receive a compact disc signed by the composer and a mention in the album's liner notes. If you choose to contribute at this level, make sure to leave your mailing address in the comments box at PayPal.

And thank you!
