SACD Housed In Beautiful 52-Page Hard-Back Full-Color Book!

After the overwhelming success of Stockfisch's recording with Chinese singer Song Zuying and the China Philharmonic Orchestra (2016 Grammy nomination) Stockfisch Records again produced a special project including a symphony orchestra: We speak about the 2016 production with the grand seigneur of songwriting: Allan Taylor! The SACD is titled "There Was A Time".

Back-story: Allan had played on the FOLKEST festival every two or three years, usually on the stage in the Piazza Castello of Spilimbergo, a delightful small town near the North Italian city of Udine. The plan arose, that Valter Sivilotti, an Italian composer, arranger and conductor, would make arrangements of a selection of Allan's songs and conduct the orchestra for the concert. This concert took place in July, 2013.

When Günter Pauler of Stockfisch Records heard the demo live-recordings he enthusiastically suggested to produce an SACD: Allan together with a symphony orchestra! Pauler hired the "Göttinger Symphonie Orchester" with their agile conductor Christoph-Mathias Mueller; Valter Sivilotti and Allan Taylor joined the recordings in Göttingen, and a very successful session was performed.
