Edward B. Marks Music announces the world premiere publication of William Bolcom's Night Pieces (1960) for solo piano. Composed in 1960 while Bolcom was studying in Paris, Night Pieces is dedicated in honor of the wedding of his friend and fellow composer, David Chaitkin (1938-2011). Forthcoming on a new album of piano recordings on the Naxos label in late 2016.
Marks Music is pleased to announce the availability of a new band transcription of the William Bolcom orchestral work, Inventing Flight. The splashy 3-movement work, commissioned for the 2003 Centennial of Flight celebrations by the Dayton and North Carolina Symphonies, and little performed since, is something of a revelation in this transcription for band by Dr. Jason Nam, who is a visiting professor and assistant director of bands at Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music.
Released in November 2015, new CD pairs works conducted by Carl St. Clair and the Pacific Symphony Orchestra. Prometheus features Jeffery Biegel at the piano; Canciones de Lorca features tenor René Barbera.
