Volante Opera Productions is proud to present our current releases available on CD and digital download.

 

Our demo recordings are created using sampled instruments painstakingly combined and balanced to create the orchestra - the intent being that with our limited resources and budget we can get as close a representation as possible of what these pieces would sound like when played by a symphonic orchestra.

 

As for the professional singers, they have all given their time freely with only a promise of a share of profits should these projects reach that goal.

 

We would love to hear these pieces performed and recorded by a real orchestra and full chorus but until that time we feel that these recordings are a wonderful representation of the work and do the important job of making these powerful pieces accessible to the general public.

All physical copies of our released recordings are available either from ourselves

(head to "Purchase" above), Prima Facie or from any major online retailer.

Other Recordings

We are currently working on a recording of the songs of Harold Fraser-Simson (1872-1944).  The English composer is best known for his light music and musical comedies.  In his later career he set numerous children's poems to music, notably the works of A. A. Milne and Lewis Carroll.  This would be the a complete recording of his Milne and Carroll songs - some of which will be the first time on record.
