PROJECT SUBMISSION FORM

 

 

1. WORKS FOR PIANO TRIO  -  Philadelphia PA, USA

 

New works for piano trio or subset with cello (solo cello, cello and piano, or cello and violin) are being recorded in Pennsylvania for a new album with cellist Ovidiu Marinescu and Trio Casals. In addition to the recording, the program will be performed at the prestigious Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in New York.

 

Since making a highly-acclaimed debut at the 1996 edition of the Pablo Casals Festival in Puerto Rico, Trio Casals has delighted audiences with spectacular virtuosity, engaging enthusiasm, and exquisite musical elegance. Notable performances include tours of China and Romania, as well as recitals at Weill Recital Hall, Rachmaninov Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, Holywell Room in Oxford, England, and the Academy of Music in Philadelphia.

 

Works selected for this album will be programmed for the fifth installment of Navona Records' MOTO series, following 2013's MOTO PERPETUO, 2015's  MOTO CONTINUO, this year's MOTO BELLO, and next year's fourth installment, currently in production.

 

MOTO BELLO's Weill Recital Hall performance is taking place on May 19th.

 WORKS FOR FLUTE - Columbus OH, USA

 

PARMA is excited to be working with Lindsey Goodman on this ‘all things flute’ project, which may include works for solo flute, flute/electronics, flute/cello/piano, flute quartet, or flute w/ chamber ensemble. Our collaboration with Lindsey started with her performance on TOMORROW’S AIR on Navona Records, and most recently she released a full album of works called RETURNING TO HEIGHTS UNSEEN. Cinemusical praised the album, saying, “Lindsey Goodman’s performances here are all a composer of new work would hope.  She has a rich tone and breath control that allows for these often interesting bends in sound as required by this music. But further, her own dedication to the music itself ends up adding a compelling quality to the different works here.”

 

Lindsey is an avid performer of new music and strong advocate for emerging composers and electroacoustic, interdisciplinary and multimedia works. As an active commissioner of new works with over one hundred world premieres to her credit, Lindsey’s versatility as a soloist, chamber collaborator, orchestral musician, recording artist, teacher, and clinician, shows through her performances with her various ensembles including Assem3ly, a flute, percussion and piano trio, PANdemonium 4, a flute quartet, and Leviathan Trio, a flute, cello and piano trio who will be performing in the first PARMA China tour this summer!

3. WORKS FOR ORCHESTRA - Athens, Greece

 

PARMA’s orchestral network continues to expand across the globe, and we’re currently accepting submissions to be among the first to record with one of our newest orchestral partners.

 

We were excited to welcome award-winning Zagreb-based conductor Miran Vaupotić to the PARMA team earlier this year (read more about Miran here). Along with his numerous contributions to the studio and our concert programs, Miran has helped to establish connections to many new ensembles including the prestigious Athens Philharmonia Orchestra.

 

Founded in November 2016, the APHO features some of the top players in the Mediterranean. The ensemble’s adventurous concert programs feature works from the international repertoire which are not widely known to the public along with a focus on modern Greek composers. Many of the works performed by the orchestra are world premieres.

 

We are seeking works for orchestra, with or without soloists, for an album of contemporary orchestral music to be aggressively promoted for concert placement, reviews, and radio play. All works recorded with the orchestra will also be considered for concert programming during the APO’s regular season.

 

Read more about Athens Philharmonic here.

 

 

GUIDELINES

 

Please submit PDF scores and corresponding MIDI files or live recordings via our Project Submission form.

 

Ideal works will be between 5 and 15 minutes in length, but pieces outside of that range will still be considered.

 

We will confirm receipt of all materials and then work with the performers and our Sessions, Audio, and A&R Teams to select pieces that could fit these open projects. Should your music be selected, we will contact you with more information on pricing, scheduling, and other details.

 

Composers' attendance at their sessions is strongly encouraged, in person or remotely via ISDN line.

Please submit PDF scores and corresponding MIDI files or live recordings via our Project Submission form.

 

Ideal works will be between 5 and 15 minutes in length, but pieces outside of that range will still be considered.

 

We will confirm receipt of all materials and then work with the performers and our Sessions, Audio, and A&R Teams to select pieces that could fit these open projects. Should your music be selected, we will contact you with more information on pricing, scheduling, and other details.

 

Composers' attendance at their sessions is strongly encouraged, in person or remotely via ISDN line.

 

 

WE LOOK FORWARD TO RECEIVING YOUR SCORE!
