What has happened to Marco Polo?

Nick Anderson in his review of Naxos's recent Pizzetti disc wonders, passim, what has happened to Marco Polo. It does seem, as he surmises, that the label is being quietly dropped and recordings of note transferred over to Naxos. Not only has this happened with the Pizzetti issue he reviews, but to a number of Malipiero discs and others. However, the odd issue does appear from time to time - there has been one recently in the ongoing Josef Strauss series. Unfortunately for me, a lover of the 'Nordic Strauss', Lumbye, the series of his music seems to have ground to a halt. |
One leading on-line retailer has had a couple of Marco Polo 'clearance sales' during this year. The moral appears to be, if there is anything on the label you particularly want, try and get it now, it may not be available for long!
