    Featured Album June 2024: George Ross & Alastair Ross "Father & Son"

    A few weeks ago, our director attended the launch concert for the new album "Father & Son" by George Ross (cello) and Alastair Ross (harpsichord). He came back, CD in hand, and recommended we all take a listen. So, we decided to go one further and choose it for this month's Featured Album. Recently released on Deux-Elles Records, the disc is a detailed exploration of sonatas by Francesco Geminiani.
