We are pleased to announce that excerpts from "Aegean Spring" by Ulvi Cemal Erkin will be performed at the Orchestra New Music Reading session at the Midwest Clinic in Chicago. As part of our promotions for the Clinic we have updated the available readings on our Research page to include a short description of Bartok's folk music research in Turkey. Erkin along with two other composers (Saygun and Akses) accompanied Bartok on this short trip to observe his methods and serve as interpreters. This short reading would be suitable as a handout to your students as you begin to study and rehearse Aegean Spring or Anatolian Sketches by Erkin.
We have also included a selection of free perusal scores on the Research page! These will be available for download until Dec. 22.
