A fine pianist from Massachusetts is embarking on a project to make a CD of piano pieces by six contemporary composers from various countries. She needs just a little bit of support from anyone interested in promoting contemporary "classical" piano compositions. Please have a look at:

What a pleasant surprise to see this posted here! One of the composers represented, Jake Bellissimo, is a personal friend of mine, and I respect him as a musician greatly. He's going to Eastman in the fall. This project is so close to being fully funded - pitch in, everyone!

Just donated. What a great idea. I had the idea to do something like this myself actually, but I will probably wait for a year or so to properly plan it and get good enough to make a good job of it. Let's just hope that people's charitableness hasn't been exhausted by then :p hehe

What a wonderful project! I am just learning about this now, but I would love to get a copy of the CD when it is ready. Congrats to Heather for her successful Kickstarter campaign!

Speaking of contemporary piano music, I am currently giving away some recent recordings of my work for the Holidays, in case anyone is interested.

Here is the link to your free music: http://www.ezradonnercomposer.com/contemporary-classical-music/

Happy Holidays to you all and cheers.

Ezra

Looks like the release was delayed a few times. Was an update for another retake session on Nov. 20. frown

A lot of contemporary piano music that is worth playing or recording can also be found on the IMSLP by searching "scores featuring the piano" and restricting to "period: modern". Like this one for example (random pick):

International Music Score Library Project - Stephan - Prelude E-Flat major

BUMP

I hope everyone checks this out. I downloaded it a couple weeks ago, and it's an excellent recording of some hard-to-find repertoire. Great work, I continue to be amazed at the level of talent we have here on the forums!
