January 2016   OgreOgress release digital singles from forthcoming Hovhaness disc of 1st recordings

Digital downloads to be released of chamber works with percussion, cello and winds.

In the summer of 2014 we reported that enterprising independent label OgreOgress was working on a fourth disc of Hovhaness premieres. This is planned for release some time in 2017, but before then OgreOgress decided to issue digital singles every few months leading up to the disc's release. This should appeal to those who are perhaps interested only in certain works, but also should hopefully stimulate wider interest in the disc before it is finally released.

Directly below are those digital tracks currently available for download. This list will be updated as and when further tracks become available. Further below is the anticipated complete track listing.
