Out now is the second release on the new ErstClass imprint, Jürg Frey-l'àme est sans retenue I. This is a remarkable six hour piece on 5 CDs, the longest piece of Frey's career, composed and assembled by him in 1998 and never before released.

For anyone interested in the latest Erstwhile news, I recommend keeping an eye on the FB page (facebook.com/erstwhilerecords) as that is updated the most frequently.
