About

In June 2018, Catherine Marie Tunnell, Horatiu Radulescu's widow, has recorded his complete works for Cello in Hard Studios, Winterthur, Switzerland.

To cover the costs of the recording and the musicians' fees, Catherine Tunnell is not only selling the new CD in this crowdfunding campaign but also some of his personal memorabilia, artwork, rare posters and other items.

Catherine & Horatiu (2008)
Catherine & Horatiu (2008)

Hi, as some of you know, my late husband Horatiu Radulescu, the French composer of Romanian origin died on 25th September 2008. That’s already 10 years ago.

To commemorate the 10th anniversary of his death I decided to record the complete works for solo cello and his cello sonata with Ian Pace. This is the first time time that these cello works have been recorded.

The CD is being produced and distributed by the renowned Mode Records of New York, USA. The recording was made in Hard Studios, Winterthur, Switzerland.

So here's the deal

I did 3 whole days of recording which I still need to finance. Ian Pace who also participated in the recording contributed his time for free and I would love to be able not only to pay him for his expenses but also for his time in thanks for his dedication.

As you may know, I took over the running of Lucero Print, Horatiu’s own publisher after his death. It has been a long haul of archiving his works and making them available for the general public. All of this wouldn’t have been possible without the help of the late Bob Gilmore, Dr. Antonio Lai and up to this present day Dr. Samuel Dunscombe.

I have some exciting rewards to offer in exchange for your funding. Horatiu never threw anything away which made moving always a big deal. So all of these items are memories of him and of his life. I am willing to part with these items for this good cause.

They include original posters from Radulescu’s performances all over the world, a limited edition of prints of some of his art works, facsimiles of some of his compostions, the film documentary, Le Mammouth Céleste, of Horatiu Radulescu by Marie-Jeanne Urech, and more. Check the rewards section to pick yours.

I would like to really encourage you to support us so that we can help Horatiu’s music be performed more frequently and be recorded in the future to ensure his eternal memory in the history of music which he deserves. Please help me on the first stepping stone of this long, epic journey that I am undertaking.

Best wishes,
Catherine Marie Tunnell

We need to cover most of the recording costs to insure that Catherine can cover the project to the end financially.

We would like to add an extended goal to cover the total costs of the CD release, the fees of the recording and the musicians plus their expenses. That would be awesome.

Finally, should we reach 17'500 CHF, we will print stickers of the Lucero logo, designed by Horatiu himself, that we'll add to all of the perks that we ship. This will reimburse Catherine of the entire costs of the campaign and help her finance future recordings.

  • Studio recording fees, 3 days: 4'900 CHF
  • Studio production fees, editing and mixing, 2 days: 3'300 CHF
  • Musician's travel & accommodation expenses: 1'400 CHF
  • Catherine Marie Tunnell, travel & other expenses: 900 CHF
  • CD printing fees (1st hundred): 1'200 CHF
  • Crowdfunding related costs: 2'500 CHF
  • 10% fee for Kickstarter platform and credit cart processing: 1'156 CHF

Total for the whole Kickstarter project: 15'756 CHF
including about 75% of it just for the CD release

Risks and challenges

The financial risk is Catherine's alone and she already took it upon agreeing to record the CD before we were ready with the website and crowdfunding campaign. We did not receive help from the state or any art foundation for this recording so we are counting on Horatiu Radulescu's fans and the contemporary music community to help us out.

An added risk is that this campaign doesn't reach enough of Radulescu's network and we consequently would miss our minimum goal of 6'000 CHF.
