In conjunction with this week's Stauffer Center for Strings opening, in Cremona, Italy, Deutsche Grammophon and Universal Italia have announced the release of the new "Stauffer Collection" CD and digital release.
The compilation features a varied collection of works recorded by the Stauffer Center for Strings' Professors, alumni, and the world-class guest musicians who will collaborate with the new learning center during the upcoming 2021-2022 academic year — including Salvatore Accardo, Bruno Giuranna, Antonio Meneses, Francesca Dego, Nemanja Radulovic, Sergej Krylov, Lisa Batiashvili, Daniel Hope, Aleksey Igudesman, Roby Lakatos, Ödön Rácz, and Avi Avital.
"The special collaboration with Deutsche Grammophon and Universal Italia represents Stauffer's first major step forward in terms of music production," Center General Director Paolo Petrocelli this week said.
"In fact, the release of this valuable collection marks just the start of an important collaboration we aim to have with the iconic German record label and the Universal Music group — one aimed at promoting our new greater strength and artistic vision, and our founding principals of excellence, innovation, and internationalism," he said.
