Leslie Bigos, executive producer

Nostos celebrates Dr. Robert Istad conducting the Cal State Fullerton University Singers in repertoire fresh from the ensemble’s concert tour in Russia, Scandinavia and the Baltics during the summer of 2017. Even though Rob and the University Singers have performed around the world and collaborate regularly with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Pacific Symphony, this is the choir’s debut album. I promise this won’t be their last.

Stunning! Remarkable! Never heard such a thing! Eleven vocal works sung and recorded FLAWLESSLY in one take, without sheet music, no editing, recorded in stereo with a legendary AKG C-24 tube microphone, all tube preamplification, and direct to SonoruS ATR12 analog tape recorder! Forget Telarc. Remember Yarlung!

Senior Editor at Large, Positive Feedback

The joy and enthusiasm these singers felt on their tour and expressed during our recording sessions bubbles through the recording and you can hear it in every piece. Working in the glorious acoustics of the Valley Performing Arts Center (soon to be renamed The Soraya) enabled us to capture every nuance. Many thanks to Leslie Bigos, Kimo Furumoto, Cal State University Fullerton and Cal State University Northridge for making this recording possible.

–Bob Attiyeh, producer
