      I'm not really surprised at how long it took. I'm used to packages from outside Canada taking at least 2 weeks to arrive.

      Hi Philip, glad you got it and glad you like it. It took quite a while to get there, though, I was expecting it to reach you earlier.

      Or, if you don't like the CD, you can give it to someone you truly dislike :)

      I am very excited for the result of this Kickstarter! I was wondering, is there any way to obtain a score of that piece you called "one of the most virtuostic flute pieces ever written"? I have some friends who would love to at least be able to take a look at it, and who all love A Bout de Souffle. Best of luck with the rest of your Kickstarter!

      Hi Philip, yes that's a problem of Kickstarter. Please add the £20 and let us know once the project is funded and we're sending you the survey. You will get your CD and the masterclass, no problem. Thank you for supporting us. Olivier

      Creator Philip Stein on March 21, 2013

      I've pledged for the clarinet masterclass, but I'd also like the CD. Should I just add £20 to my pledge?
