Performing and Recording the Orchestral Works

Now that the Thomas de Hartmann Project CDs have been made available to the public, we are engaged in the process of recording and also seeking performance opportunities for the orchestral works. Efrem Marder, long-time project team member, is leading this initiative. 

As a first step, in September 2021, a festival of three concerts, Thomas de Hartmann in Ukraine- a Forgotten Master was organized in Lviv Ukraine in collaboration with the conductor Theodore Kuchar, and the Lviv National Philharmonic Orchestra of Ukraine. During that time, studio recordings for three CDs were completed, with a first release in February 2022 on Toccata Classics. The second release, slated for June 2022, will feature Elan Sicroff playing de Hartmann’s piano concerto with guest conductor Tian Hui Ng. In 2022, recordings will continue in Lviv Ukraine. 

Additionally, recordings are also taking place in Moscow Russia with the Russian National Orchestra, violin soloist Joshua Bell, and conductor Kirill Karabits, for a CD planned for release on the Pentatone label in November 2022. Our overall plan calls for three orchestral CDs to be released in 2022 and three more in 2023, and we are also evaluating concert opportunities.
