 Speaking about the cd 'Maestro' Mark Wilkinson commented 'Maestro' showcases the amazing talents of Bram Tovey as a composer, conductor and performer. It was a privilege for the band to work on this recording with bram and the other world renowned soloist Mark Fewer and Joe Alessi. Fodens are honoured to be associated with Bram and always look forward to working with him when our diaries permit.
Plans are already underway for another cd recording with Bram in 2010.
