Composers Edition

Welcome to Composers Edition - rethinking contemporary music publishing.

Colin Riley

'Beautiful, clever and direct'
Classical Music Magazine
'Tantalising new territory'
The Times

We're delighted to welcome Colin Riley to Composers Edition.  The opening selection of works reflect the directness and genuine integration of stylistic approaches at the heart of Colin's music.  The Inside Springs for orchestra (first performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra) includes electric guitar in a way which makes it sound entirely at home.  The beguiling Shenanigans for clarinet and piano is typical of Colin's chamber music in its beautiful clarity.  His chamber opera Science Fictions  (commissioned by the St Magnus Festival) has just been recorded for DVD release and Colin is busy with several projects as you'll see on his profile - we look forward to publishing new works as they arrive!

Gregory Emfietzis

Composers Edition is delighted to welcome Gregory Emfietzis with an initial selection of eight works for a range of forces including solos for piano and cello, chamber and vocal works.  Works include the beguiling The Book of the Dead - a song cycle composed for the Aldeburgh Music English Song Project.

Emfietzis's music both takes advantage of the freedoms of contemporary compositional practice whilst being disarmingly direct in its emotional and psychological content. It has been able to attract commissions and performances from an impressive array of contemporary musicians and ensembles including London Sinfonietta, Apartment House, Huw Watkins, Asamisimasa, Orkest de Ereprijs.

We look forward to helping bring this music to a wider public.
