Where to Now, Mr. Stahnke and Telarc !
By Jim Edwards

I have just received my review copy of Wayne's second CD for Telarc but
have not as yet released up some time to relax and give it a hearing.
A review of the CD will appear in a future issue of Clavier magazine.
I am sure, as Rich Marschner has commented, that this half of the
Rachmaninoff project will be as satisfying as the first proved to be.

It seems to me that "A Window in Time" should not end at this
point.  Is Wayne interested in additional reproducing roll projects?
Is Telarc, for that matter, in an age where classical music on CD is
a really hard sale with narrow profit margins?

I would like to make a suggestion.  If both parties are interested
the best way to proceed is not to issue CD's of particular performers
such as Bauer, Friedman, Paderewski or Grainger, but to concentrate on
a composer.  Liszt would be a fine choice, lots of storm and musical
guts.  Another excellent choice for a CD would be a nationalist theme
such as "British Music".

In this way Telarc would not go head to head with Nimbus Records'
endless "Grand Piano Era" CD's.  Knowing the careful nature of Wayne's
work I am sure that Telarc could keep the ball rolling to the delight
of people interested in pianists of the romantic golden age.  Telarc
and Wayne: any way I can help, let me know!
