Weʼre raising £7,500 to fund a project to record the chamber music of Arnold Cooke, a wonderful British composer whose music deserves to be better-known.

Some wonderful artists and musicians just don't get a fair go! The English composer Arnold Cooke lived a long and productive life from 1906 to 2005. He was a gentle soul who composed music until the age of 90 but was far too modest about his own work. We have long wanted to share this attractive, accessible music with a much wider audience so are engaging in a project to record lots of his marvellous chamber music for the first time. To do so we need to raise a further £7,500 to match the support already pledged. Please help us to shout about a remarkable musician! http://www.pleyelensemble.com/cooke-recording-project/
