D/5 IDVERIES THE

D/5 IDVERIES THE WHOLENOTE'S CD FORUM DISCOVERIES is a CD review section designed to complement and enhance our pre-eminent coverage of Toronto's live classical and new music concert scene, featuring reviews by WholeNote columnists and independent contributors. CDs are considered for review in the following four categories: 1. "Concert prep" - CDs, new or otherwise, which tie in with events being featured in the current issue of the magazine-this issue this section also includes a host of seasonal offerings; 2. New and Recent Releases - newly released CDs relevant to our magazine's coverage of the music scene; 3. "Worth repeating" - CDs newly re-issued, or previously released but still generally available, deemed particularly noteworthy by a member of our editorial panel; 4. "lndie list" - Small label or independent re- · lease CDs, often featuring individuals or groups active on the local music scene. 5. "Disc(s) of the month" - Discs of special interest, often with a particular connection to the month's concert activities. We think DISCOVERIES is a logical and exciting extension of The WholeNote 's coverage of the Toronto music scene. We welcome your feedback and invite submissions. Catalogues, review copies of CDs and comments should be sent to: The WholeNote, 60 Bellevue Avenue, Toronto ON M5T 2N4. We also welcome your input via our website, www.thewholenote.com.
