This autumn sees the première of two major ballet scores by Gavin Bryars who, in addition to his pieces for the concert and operatic stage, has built a highly-acclaimed body of work in the field of dance over the last 25 years. Highlights of Bryars’ ballet repertoire include the classic BIPED which he created with Merce Cunningham, and an ongoing series of pieces with the Canadian choreographer Édouard Lock. Bryars’ premières this autumn are Peer Gynt with Gregor Zöllig at the Theater Bielefeld, and 11 th Floor with Édouard Lock for Cullberg Ballet. The first piece takes its inspiration from Edvard Grieg’s incidental music from the Henrik Ibsen play, while the second evokes the sounds and imagery of 1940s and 1950s American 'film noir'. Schott Music does, of course, have a long history in the world of ballet, having published Igor Stravinsky’s L’Oiseau de feu , Jeu de cartes and Scènes de Ballet , as well as, among others, Hans Werner Henze’s masterpieces for the ballet stage. Collaborating with dance companies and choreographers can create powerful and exciting artistic possibilities for composers, and is a fantastic way to bring the music of today to new audiences. Here at Schott we support this kind of collaboration whole-heartedly. - from the editorial by Sam Rigby, Schott Music London Contents: World Premières: Robert Beaser: The End of Knowing · Chaya Czernowin: Winter Songs V: Forgotten Light · Toshio Hosokawa: Aeolus · Pierre Jalbert: Howl · Lei Liang: Inkscape · Detlev Müller-Siemens: ...called dusk III · Thierry Pécou: Safarad's · Fazıl Say: Gezi Park 3 · Enjott Schneider: Sulamith · Benjamin Schweitzer: volapük · Alvin Singleton: Where the Good Sounds Live · Harald Weiss: Weiße Nacht · Jörg Widmann: Bayerisch-Babylonischer Marsch etc. News: Schneider-Schott-Musikpreis Mainz for Carolin Widmann Ernst Toch: 50 th Anniversary of Death First Nights: Georges Bizet: Carmen at Madrid · Karl Amadeus Hartmann: Des Simplicius Simplicissimus Jugend at Berlin and Mainz · Christian Jost: Death Knocks / Mark-Anthony Turnage: Twice Through the Heart at Heidelberg · Jacques Offenbach: Les Contes d'Hoffmann at Basel · Kurt Weill: Die sieben Todsünden at Vienna etc. Repertoire Recommendations Ballet today - new ballet music New CDs at WERGO (Toshio Hosokawa and Enjott Schneider) and at international labels New Publications: Sheet music and catalogues Repertoire: George Gershwin: Who cares? schott aktuell: recent issue, subscription, archive Thu, 28 Aug 2014 00:00:00 +0200 http://www.schott-international.com/cms/php/Proxy.php/en_UK/smi/news/archive/show,10687.html?newsCategoryId=11 schott-music.com - Global News from Schott Music Global News from Schott Music Composers News Top Story Vijay Iyer Joins Schott Music - 07/22/2014 http://www.schott-international.com/cms/php/Proxy.php/en_UK/smi/news/archive/show,10595.html?newsCategoryId=11 Schott Music is delighted to announce the signing of an exclusive worldwide concert music publishing agreement with pianist and composer Vijay Iyer.
