In 2002, Adam Abeshouse founded the Classical Recording Foundation to meet the growing need for artists not supported by major labels to be able to record music about which they are passionate. In the words of The New Yorker, “The Classical Recording Foundation (is) devoted to the proposition that posterity is despoiled when artists are denied the chance to record their own interpretations of certain repertoire.” For more information, visit www.classicalrecordingfoundation.org.
