Yesterday, we posted a 19th-hour appeal for a crowd-funder that aimed to record the music of Hans Gal, a Hitler refugee who settled in Edinburgh, where he lived for a blameless half-century, composing in a late-romantic style. The UK-based US conductor Kenneth Woods is passionate about his music. But the appeal was not going well. With less than a day to go, it was more than one-third short of its £8,500 target.
This morning, we checked in. The Gal campaign has overshot its aims by £187. The record will be made. Gal will be saved for posterity. Well done you!
