Classic Maestro gets a special limited edition run
Beethoven Virus‘s Kim Myung-min‘s classical-music compilation album, Classic Maestro, has met with such success that another pressing is in the works, this time as a limited edition as a particular keepsake for fans.
Only 200 of these special-edition CDs will be released, each coming with Kim’s autograph and labeled with its own unique number. Because of the small number of albums that will be made available, a management rep explained that they are currently deciding how to distribute them, such as via internet lotteries, applications, and other methods.
It was explained that one of the immediate reasons for deciding to go with this special edition album was the January 3 fan-signing event, when they were surprised at the unexpected crowds, well exceeding their anticipated attendance (they’d planned for 200, and more than a thousand showed up, some of whom camped out overnight). There were requests for an additional fan-signing event, and the album was proposed as a suitable alternative.
