The German release of the Helmut Lotti album is called “The Comeback Album” and was released in Germany on the 27th October. It has many tracks from its original Belgian release as “Faith Hope and Love”, together with a couple of tracks recorded live at the concert in December 2015 in the beautiful old Roma Theatre in Antwerp which Andrew conducted (“Bridge Over Troubled Water” and “My Boy”) and the two new tracks recorded at British Grove in April of last year.

Andrew and Kirsten have been in Cambridge again, recording brass music with John Wallace for a Nimbus CD and also having discussions with Stephen Cleobury (the head of Music at King’s College) about the next “Epiphany” - another series of concerts in King’s College Chapel devoted to the music of composers associated with King’s - carrying on from the series curated by Andrew and John last year at the College. Details to be announced shortly.

More plans are also afoot to record an entire CD of brass music composed by Andrew with the Wallace Collection. Andrew is also in discussion with his very good longstanding friend and writing partner David Pack about a couple of new projects which both of them are really excited about. Again, more details to follow shortly... Finally, Andrew has been asked by the Italian cinematographer and director Giuliano Tomassacci to provide the score to his new film, which uses a new split-screen technique. Giuliano did the long interview with Andrew about his work on “Ladyhawke” in the Italian magazine “Colonne Sonore”in 2006.
