So it turns out that my record of the orchestral music of Nan Schwartz (see image) has had over 507,000 plays in just over three-and-a-half months since the record was released on the Divine Art Records label in March this year.
Well besides the 507,000 very kind folk who’ve discovered this American composer’s consumate and extraordinary music (courtesy of an initial promotion by Naxos on their Spotify Playlist – thank you guys!) it seems that the ‘established’ classical music press haven’t quite caught up.
It’s an interesting statistic when you compare Nan’s numbers to some of the apparently better recognised names (current artists, composers and conductors) flaunted by the major record labels and their Spotify statistics over the same period!
Ah, well, all in good time I imagine.
