It is dedicated to capturing the spontaneity and emotion, power and excitement of classic music performances through rare recordings of public performances and interviews. The charity is currently seeking further funding to enable this work to continue and to expand the collections currently available to the public. The DVD produced by Back To The Planet will allow a detailed an powerful presentation of the work of Music Preserved and will feature interviews with key contributors, artists and engineers. In 2009, the record label mpLIVE was launched which allows archived material held by Music Preserved to be downloaded over the Internet and “exists to ensure that historic performances can live again in a format which is accessible to all”. Funds from the sale of these recordings over the Internet contributes to funding the charity’s work. It is hoped the DVD will further boost support for their valuable work in preserving and making available historical music performances.
