Call for Chamber Music Recordings 2019

 Call for Chamber Music Recordings 2019
Summary:Call for recordings
Deadline: 30 September 2019
Date Posted: 26 June 2019
Details: This project is open to composers and performers of any age and nationality that have recordings (live or studio) of their chamber music compositions.

We hope to discover works that would otherwise remain under the radar, with the aim to promote both the up-and-coming and the more established composers and performers.

With previous projects, we had the honour and pleasure to discover and release music written by composers from different countries, professors of universities or colleges, some of whom have won prizes and awards. Some others are artists working on establishing their career. If you want to discover more about our roster of composers and performers please visit the following page.

The winners will have their works published in a music release produced to showcase and promote contemporary music. Such release will be distributed in all the digital stores, platforms and outlets (Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play Music, Amazon Music and many more). The winners will also receive other prizes, please continue reading if you want to discover more.

The three-tier registration fee will be the only cost for the winners - no other hidden costs or charges will be required.
