Jan 2016—Jan 2018   OgreOgress to release fourth all-Hovhaness disc of premiere recordings


Back in the summer of 2014 we announced that enterprising independent label OgreOgress was working on a fourth disc of Hovhaness premieres. Having previously issued downloadable digital singles of individual works from this release (recently all withdrawn) OgreOgress is now projecting an early 2020 release date for the entire album in physical format. Like its predecessors, the disc will appear in high-quality 96kHz|24bit audio DVD format.
