Kobayashi/Gray Duo Call for Repertoire

The Kobayashi/Gray Duo (violin/piano) seeks one or more works for violin/piano duo by self-identifying female composers for our upcoming CD recording. We have recorded two CDs: Boldly Expressive: Music by Women and Feminissimo!: Women Playing Music By Women, both on the Albany Records label. The Duo has performed, recorded, published and lectured on music of women composers for more than 30 years. Please see www.KobayashiGrayDuo.com for more information about us.

This work(s) will be included on our next CD (recording planned for 2023) at no cost to the composer and promoted, at a minimum, in concerts preceding and following the recording. We are available to collaborate on opportunities for additional performances. The deadline for submission is October 1, 2022. The selection will be made by December 1, 2022.

The composition may be of any length up to 20 minutes. Preference will be for works by early-career composers up to age 40 and particularly those by women of color. Works composed within the last 10 years are eligible. For this project, we would prefer works that have not and will not be recorded for other commercial releases prior to our recording. Please send links of scores and recordings (performances or electronic) and provide a resume or website link to [email protected] You may contact us for additional questions at this address.
