It’s hard to see actual sales but I’m thinking that we have reached just about 10,000 sales for your recording of The Complete Etudes.  We sold 4800 on iTunes of the complete set.  With CDs, it’s hard to say because many get shipped and we only get paid much later. All I can see is how many we’ve manufactured.  I think we probably sold at least 3,500 to 5,000 CDs.

To sell 10,000 copies of a classical album in the modern era is incredible.  Brava to you.  It’s an incredible recording and the videos – all of them, certainly helped with sales.
