About the UYMP
The University of York Music Press - now known as UYMP - was founded in 1995 by David Blake with Bill Colleran. Its purpose is to publish and promote new and established composers with a range of aesthetic backgrounds. UYMP's catalogue represents this diversity with young voices such as Luís Tinoco, Ed Hughes and Sadie Harrison to the recent work of David Blake, Anthony Gilbert, Vic Hoyland, Nigel Osborne, Jo Kondo and Robert Saxton. UYMP is also proud to publish the music of David Lumsdaine and Elisabeth Lutyens.
UYMP is pioneering a series of novel educational resources for teachers and students at the primary, secondary and tertiary level. On Track, its series for GCSE Music offering students 13 new ensemble works, is endorsed by Edexcel examining board. Pianthology comprises seven contemporary piano works which can serve as an excellent introduction to new music for the piano for university and conservatoire level students, or any dedicated player looking to broaden their range.
The University of York Music Press is a company limited by guarantee which was created by the Heslington Foundation, a charitable trust for music and associated arts (Charity Number 518348). UYMP is grateful to the Arts Council England Lottery Fund, the PRS Foundation for New Music (PRSF), the Holst Foundation, York City Council, the RVW Trust and other charities for their generous support.
