Still tired after last nights epic Beethoven 9 with the BBC, but good news this morning. I have now acquired a copy of Dounis' arrangement of Chopins Opus 25 no.3 etude in D flat major. There was only one copy in Europe that I could find of this out of print manuscript, which I now have bringing my total of out of print documents needed down to 5! Cannot see a reason why the owners of these editions do not reprint them all, come on Alfred Publishing do the right thing!!!
We've teamed up with graphic designer/illustrator Reg Silva, who created our series poster. Thanks Reg! See more of her work at here.
Thanks to a lovely evening with Seaming To, Leon & Paddy--a fabulous time at Ronnie Scott's in Soho, London.

VILLIERS QUARTET LAUNCHES NEW CHAMBER MUSIC SERIES
IN HAMMERSMITH & FULHAM
The Villiers Quartet
The Villiers Quartet seeks new compositions from young composers as part of its 2011-2012 concert season at St Andrew's Church, Fulham Fields, London, UK. The concert season, which already consists of string quartets by Haydn, Mendelssohn, Delius, and Beethoven, will feature a competition open to an international field of new and upcoming composers.
The first round will be narrowed to six entries, which will be recorded and posted on our website for online audience vote. Three finalists will be chosen via online voting and have their works performed in London by the Villiers Quartet on April 29th, 2012. The winner will be determined at the concert by audience vote. The winner will receive a prize of £500 and a studio recording of their piece, plus inclusion of their work into the Villiers Quartet repertoire for upcoming seasons.
We want to hear your music.
