Particular welcome to Gordon Thornett, Andrew Bruhn, Sarah Riskind, and Darren Schmidt, each of whom is new to the P:E Catalog. Congratulations to all on these endorsements!
Each of these selections has been blind-vetted by at least three of the prominent conductors who serve in our pool of reviewers.An average of just over half of all post-premiere compositions submitted are accepted into the P:E Catalog. Congratulations, all!
CONDUCTORS are urged to sign up to receive the quarterly report, for regular updates on new repertoire!
COMPOSERS are urged to submit compositions that have been premiered, but have not been extensively performed beyond the premiere–as frequently as one per quarter–for review and possible upload into the prestigious PROJECT : ENCORE™ database.
