We are thrilled that earlier this year, Evis Sammoutis was awarded a commission from New Music USA towards the composition of ‘Nicosia Etudes’, a series of 6 etudes for solo violin, composed especially for Peter Sheppard Skaerved.
We are delighted that Sadie Harrison’s new work Hällristningsområdet (Rock Carvings) for solo double bass has just been released on the enterprising label Prima Facie Records (Postcards from Oslo (PFCD071), performed by the Swedish virtuoso Dan Styffe.
Sadie writes: The area of Tanumshede is situated on the south western coast of Sweden. Archaeologically, it is renowned for its unique series of Bronze Age rock carvings dating from between c. 1800 to 500 BCE.
UYMP is very sad to learn of the death of Jeremy Dale Roberts, a most distinguished composer with whom it was an absolute pleasure to work, and whom we were proud to have in our catalogue. We offer deepest condolences to his family.
