Christopher Cerrone Awarded 2015-16 Rome Prize

Christopher Cerrone is among the winners of the prestigious Rome Prize, awarded every year to composers at the highest caliber of their craft by the American Academy in Rome. Along with scholars and artists from several other disciplines, Cerrone will join his cohort in Rome for a year of unrestricted artistic freedom, with generous support from the academy. Cerrone joins fellow PSNY Composers Anthony Cheung, Lei Liang, and Andrew Norman, all of whom have held the Rome Prize in the past ten years. 

We're also excited to announce that two of Cerrone's latest compositions are now available on PSNY: Not One Word for men's choir, commissioned and premiered by the Cornell University Glee Club in 2014, and Sonata for Violin and Piano, commissioned by the Fromm Foundation at Harvard University and premiered by Rachel Lee Priday and David Kaplan earlier this year. Check out a video of Priday and Kaplan performing this sonata below.  

Three Works by Lei Liang

Live from Rome! New York City's WQXR airs an interview with Lei Liang, live from the American Academy in Rome, on January 25th, 2012. Check out the livestream here: http://www.wqxr.org/#/articles/q2-music/2012/jan/25/interview-lei-liang/. Lei's interview is a part of WQXR's "China in New York" series, an innovative and fresh look at Chinese-American composers. 

Lei's recent signing with Schott has been a huge thrill for us, and we've been hard at work getting all of his materials ready for publication. Three new works are now available on PSNY: "A Journey into Desire," for solo guitar; "In Praise of Shadows," for solo flute, and "Gobi Canticle," for violin and viola or cello. Check out an excerpt of "In Praise of Shadows" here:
