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 <http://www.marinescu.com/>and Trio 
Casals <https://www.facebook.com/events/1805768936391598/>. 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 
<http://www.navonarecords.com/catalog/nv6003/>, this year's MOTO BELLO 
<http://www.navonarecords.com/catalog/nv6156/>, and next year's fourth 
installment, currently in production.

MOTO BELLO's Weill Recital Hall performance will be taking place this 
weekend: www.carnegiehall.org/Calendar/2018/05/19/TRIO-CASALS-0800PM 

2. WORKS FOR FLUTE - Columbus, OH

PARMA is excited to be working with Lindsey Goodman 
<https://www.lindseygoodman.com/>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 <http://www.navonarecords.com/catalog/nv6108/> on Navona Records, 
and most recently she released a full album of works called RETURNING TO 
HEIGHTS UNSEEN <http://www.navonarecords.com/catalog/nv6149/>. 
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 <https://www.facebook.com/assem3ly/>, a flute, 
percussion and piano trio, PANdemonium 4, a flute quartet, and Leviathan 
Trio <https://www.facebook.com/LeviathanTrio/?fref=mentions>, a flute, 
cello and piano trio who will be performing in the first PARMA China 

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 APO 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.

GUIDELINESPlease submit PDF scores and corresponding MIDI files via our 
Project Submission Form: http://bit.ly/callforSCORES

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!
